Samsung will offer the 8K TV in 65, 75, 72 and 85-inch sizes. All models feature Real 8K resolution, Quantum Processor 8K and Q HDR 8K. These enhancements are meant to provide an exceptional 8K experience on the TV.

The Samsung 8K TV price has only been confirmed for the 85-inch model as yet. Samsung hasn’t said when it will begin taking pre-orders for the other sizes and how much they will cost. Interested customers can now pre-order its 8K TV for an eye-watering $15,000.

So what does $15,000 get you? The Samsung Q900R touts Real 8K Resolution and 4,000 bit peak brightness. The TV can produce four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV. 8K content isn’t really common so this is where Samsung’s AI comes in.

Its proprietary 8K AI Upscaling technology increases picture and sound quality “a level compatible with 8K” therefore it does that regardless of the original source quality or format. The Quantum Processor 8K can recognize and upscale content to 8K from sources like HDMI, USB, set-top box, streaming service and even mobile mirroring.

Pre-orders for the Samsung 8K TV can now be placed through the company’s online store. It will start shipping units the week of October 28. If you don’t want to pay $15,000 upfront, it’s offering an installment plan of $416 per month over 36 months.
