Samsung has now revealed the pricing and availability of the full range of models for the U.S. market.

Samsung 8K QLED TVs up for pre-orders

Samsung’s 8K TV series features an embedded Quantum Processor 8K chip which touts features such as Real 8K Resolution and a high level of peak brightness. The processor can recognize and upscale content to 8K from sources like HDMI, USB, set-top boxes, streaming services and even mobile mirroring. In addition, Samsung also promises an improved version of Bixby in this series.

The 8K TVs ship with Samsung’s One Connect box which currently comes equipped with HDMI 2.0b ports, limiting the bandwidth to video quality of up to 8K at 30Hz. For 8K at higher frame rates, HDMI 2.1 connector will be required. Samsung is still testing the new connector and will supply an upgraded One Connect box once it has been certified.

Samsung announced the 85-inch model in October last year, with a price tag of $14,999. The company will begin shipping the units on February 8. The 65-inch and 75-inch models are listed with an expected shipping date of March 1, while the 82-inch model will ship by March 22. These three models are priced at $4,999, $6,999 and $9,999, respectively.

You can pre-order the televisions through the Samsung Online Store now.
