Samsung’s Stunning UHD TV Goes On Extremely Limited (& Expensive) Pre-Order
Only 77 of Samsung’s 85 inch UHD TVs have been made available for pre-order. ‘Why 77?’ you ask: because it has a 40 million won price-tag, which is roughly $AU36,000.
Currently LG and Sony are the only two companies with 84 inch UHD TVs available in the Australian market. They retail at $17,999 and $24,999 respectively.
Ultra High Definition televisions have twice the resolution and four times the pixels of current standard Full HD televisions. The denser pixels display supported contentâ€”which at present, is limitedâ€”in unprecedented clarity.
Samsung’s UHD television uses a LED panel and is distinguished by a controversial easel stand. Although an aesthetic statement, the stand also discreetly houses a 2.2 channel, 120 watt speaker system.
According to The Verge, Samsung’s 85 inch UHD TV is expected to go on sale in March.
