If you can get (read: afford) a 77-inch OLED TV, get it. But now Samsung wants you to do better with the 83-inch version of its S90C QD-OLED TV. And the price of this quantity of 4K quality? Instead, it’s not unreasonable at $5,400.
The new addition is available today and joins the 55, 65 and 77 inch models already in the range.
“Big screens are the fastest growing segment of the television industry,” said James Fischler, senior vice president of Home Entertainment and Display, Samsung Electronics America, in a press release. “We are providing another option for people to enjoy the benefits of Samsung’s OLED TV on a bigger screen. »
While it’s worth noting that pixel density decreases as screen size increases, you probably won’t notice it here – or care. The S90C is the slightly lower version of the S95C that we’ve been craving since we first laid eyes on it. The S90C isn’t as shiny on paper, or as stylish. But it’s also not terribly expensive, and in our first tests the differences in image quality between the S95C and S90C seemed to be negligible when viewing most content.
“We understand that no two people are the same and we want to find the perfect TV that fits their unique space and lifestyle. That’s why we’re offering more choices than ever before, whether you prefer a Neo QLED 4K or OLED TV or even a Lifestyle TV,” said Fischler. There is always a great choice for viewers. »
fair enough. This monstrous model offers “pure blacks, unlimited contrast and vibrant colors, all powered by the Samsung Neural Quantum Processor”. So he got that for him, which is good. It’s powered by Samsung’s “neural quantum processor” (which was also a deprecated James Bond title) and supports Dolby Atmos. It’s still a Samsung TV, so Dolby Vision is nowhere to be found.
The Tizen-based OS still has the Samsung Gaming Hub ready, along with HDMI 2.1, a 120Hz refresh rate, and Game Motion Plus to boost things up to 144Hz if you plug in a PC.
And you get Samsung’s SolarCell remote that uses light to charge.
While the suggested retail price of $5,400 is likely higher than the retail price we’d expect, it’s in line with other OLED TVs of its size from competing brands and, in some cases, cheaper. Sony A80L, for example, is currently selling for $5,500.
