Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship television, the QN990C. This mammoth Samsung 8K QLED 98-inch model boasts a TCL panel and an exceptionally high resolution. However, Samsung’s commitment to top-tier quality also comes with a hefty price tag.
The QN990C is an imposing 98-inch Samsung 8K TV, delivering not only a substantial display but also an array of upscale features, including impressive dimming capabilities and robust audio playback.
This 98″ 8K Samsung TV boasts a resolution that surpasses the 4K standard, with an impressive specification of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels. It’s worth noting that Samsung sources the panel from TCL, a renowned player in the industry.
The TV employs mini LED technology for its backlighting, functioning across distinct zones with individual LEDs. With ample zones and precise coordination, this local dimming technique achieves a significantly higher contrast ratio by selectively illuminating dark portions of the screen to a lesser extent than brighter areas.
The new Samsung 98-inch Smart TV is among the largest screens available. Typically, home users would opt for a projector when seeking such an expansive display. The TV is equipped with a robust 120-watt sound system, touted as a 6.4.4 sound configuration, with support for Dolby Atmos.
