Samsung Launches 88″ Q9F QLED & 82″ MU8000 HDR TVs

Samsung 88" Q9F

The Samsung Q9F Series is the company’s flagship line of UHD TVs, but so far there have only been two choices for screen size, 65″ and 75″. But now the company has released a massive 88″ Q9F—the QN88Q9F ($19,999). It promises to blow TV viewers away with vibrant picture and impressive user-friendly features. As of now, the Ultra HD Premium certified, top-of-the-line 88″ Samsung Q9F is available to order in Korea and North America.

Samsung touts the 88″ Q9F’s ability to achieve 100% color volume in the DCI/P3 space used for commercial cinema. Color volume is a measure of how well a TV can reproduce rich color in all types of scenes. But the really exciting thing about this TV is the screen itself. 88″ of 4K quantum dot-powered HDR provides picture quality that pulls the viewer into TV, sports, and movies. It’s so big, it crosses over into a home theater experience, except that no projector can provide 1000-nit HDR highlights.
