Samsung QLED TVs with first-class energy-efficiency rating launched in South Korea
Samsung has announced the launch of its QT67 series QLED TV models with a first-class energy efficiency rating in its home market South Korea. This is the first time that the company has launched a QLED TV with such high energy efficiency ratings. Earlier, the company had introduced its Crystal UHD TVs with the same grade.
The QT67 QLED TV series is available in six sizes, starting from 43 inches and going as high as 85 inches. It is available in 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch versions as well. The 43-inch version of the QT67 QLED TV is priced at KRW 990,000, and the 85-inch version goes as high as KRW 5,490,000 (around $4,570).
Despite offering South Korea’s first-class energy efficiency rating, all these models offer excellent image quality, thanks to the QLED panel, with the ability to reproduce 100% of the color volume and Quantum HDR. Customers purchasing this new TV during the offer period will be eligible to receive a 10% refund (up to a maximum of KRW 300,000) per person from the Korea Energy Management Corporation.
When South Korean consumers buy a 55-inch or larger version of the QT67 series QLED TV, they will be eligible to receive a discount of up to KRW 600,000, including refunds and a KRW 300,000 benefit from Samsung. According to market research firm OMDIA, the global sales of QLED TVs are expected to be 31.7 million units in the first half of 2020, up by more than 50% (22.1 million units) from last year.
Jong-Seok Chu, VP of Samsung Electronics’ Video Display Business Unit, said, “Samsung TV is trying to deliver meaningful value to consumers in addition to image quality such as recently released eco-packages and safety-grade certifications for vision protection. It will also contribute to energy savings.”Join the Discussion
