Samsung announced on Thursday that it has added 43-inch and 98-inch sizes to its QN90A line of “Neo QLED” 4K TVs and an 85-inch option for its The Frame TV, bringing more choice to consumers who want the option of a small or a huge flagship TV.
Samsung said these kinds of flagship-class panels used to be mainly limited to the 55- to 77-inch range, but they seem to be making their way into size classes that used to be reserved for budget TVs. The Neo QLED TVs feature Samsung’s flagship panels, which use Mini LED backlighting to enhance contrast and picture quality.
LG recently announced that its CX line would get a 48-inch offering in 2020, and this year it got even smaller by announcing a 42-inch model (although the release has reportedly been delayed). Gigabyte and Asus also offer TV-sized gaming monitors, with 43- and 48-inch panel models available.
Samsung stated that it has also further developed its LED The Wall (IWA series). The 2021 model delivers the most detailed image from The Wall to date, offering the industry’s first 8K resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and easy 8K playback. The Wall’s massive screen can be configured to over 1,000 inches – or about a quarter of the length of a football field – creating a fully expansive canvas for presenting content.
Samsung’s Lifestyle portfolio is also being “expanded” with a large 85-inch version of The Frame and a 65-inch Terrace Full Sun for installation in direct sunlight. With these additions, The Frame portfolio will now be available in 7 screen sizes, and The Terrace – between the Full Sun model and the original design – will be available in 3.
For people who prefer smaller, medium or larger TVs, Samsung has designed a plan to bring a beautiful TV to everyone. The 43-inch Neo is expected to be available in a few days, and the 98-inch Neo and 85-inch Frame within weeks.
