Back at CES, Samsung unveiled an absolutely insane 88-inch QLED television called the Q9. It only took seven months, but now the TV is available for purchase in North America and Korea for a whopping $19,999. You can purchase the Q9 from Best Buy, with Geek Squad protection costing another $2,099.99 if you’re interested.
Samsung’s Q9 television features an 88-inch 4K QLED display with built-in HDR and Wi-Fi compatibility. It serves as the superior to the 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch models the company also sells which all feature the same QLED technology. Samsung touts the TV reproduces rich and colorful picture “just as they were intended to be seen using metal quantum dot technology.” It also has a wide color gamut to display even more detailed colors alongside “remarkable brightness.” Whatever that means.
Furthermore, the TV comes with the company’s invisible Connection which is a transparent optical cable that connects the Q9 to power and other peripherals. A No Gap wall mount comes in the box if you wanna put 88 inches of screen on your wall. I recommend you don’t if you’re an average consumer, but if you have a big enough wall in your home, mount away.
“At Samsung, we are aiming to expand our footprint in the ultra-premium TV market with our ultra-large QLED TV models that embody the perfect combination of technology and art,” said Jongsuk Chu, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “With their superior picture quality and innovative features, we are confident that our QLED TV lineup will continue to drive sales and solidify Samsung’s leadership in the global TV market.”
