Back in February 2023, Samsung announced the 98-inch Q80C 4K QLED TV in Europe. Last month, the company revealed that it will soon launch this TV in the US as well. The brand opened reservations for the product, which offered people $500 credit that they could use to purchase the TV. While the reservation offer ended on July 2, Samsung has now opened pre-orders for the 98-inch QN80C, and it comes with some exciting offers.
The 98-inch Q80C TV, carrying model number QN98Q80CAFXZA, is priced at $7,999 in the US. However, if you pre-order the TV, you can get it for $6,999. That’s a $1,000 discount on the retail price. You will get the Samsung Q800C soundbar for free, which is priced at $999 but retails around $799 in the country. If you pre-order the TV, Samsung is also offering free delivery and installation. All these offers are valid till July 23, 2023.
