Samsung Teases 4K OLED And Shows Off Massive 98-inch & 110-inch UHDTV’s
This year at IFA Berlin, Samsung Unpacked with a new 98-inch Ultra HDTV and plans to make a 110-inch model. Samsung also hinted that it is developing the first-ever Ultra HD OLED TV. The company previously launched an 85-inch version that went on pre-order back in March and showed off an 110-inch version back at CES.
Samsung teased a 4K OLED TV, much like the products Sony and Panasonic showed off at CES back in January. But if Samsung ends up producing an Ultra HD OLED TV, then it is an even bigger deal.
Samsung also teased what it said will be the very first UHD OLED TV, but no other details were shared, and once again showed off its 55-inch Curved OLED set, which arrived in Europe last week.
Ultra HDTVs have four times as many pixels as traditional HDTVs, known as 4K resolution in the industry (4,096 x 2,160 pixels, for example).
Specifically, there was a 98-inch version of Samsung’s ultra-high definition (UHD) S9 HDTV. You can expect the 98-inch version to have a significantly larger price tag than the already outrageous $39,999, for the 85-inch model.
In total, that makes five models in Samsung’s UHD lineup: 55, 65, 85, 98, and 110-inch models. The 55 and 65-inch models received pricing, at approximately $5,270 and $7,900 respectively.
