Samsung's "QLED" TVs go up for pre-order, starting at $2500

06 Feb 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

If you want one of Samsung’s 2017 LCDs, branded “QLED”, you must be prepared to spend a lot. The Q7 and Q8 are now up for pre-order starting at $2500 for a 55-inch TV.

Samsung 2017 TV pricing

At CES 2017, Samsung unveiled its 2017 line-up of TVs that the company will sell as “QLED”. To be clear this is not a new display technology but LCD TVs that utilize quantum dots, much like the 2015 and 2016 Samsung “SUHD” LCD TVs.

Samsung Q7F


Still, the 2017 TVs will be considerably more expensive than last year’s models. The flat Q7F (F for flat) starts at $2500 dollars for the 55” version. For comparison, last year’s 55” KS8000 was $1800 at launch. The curved Q8C (C for curved) will cost you $3500 for a 55” model whereas last year’s KS8500 was $2000 at launch.

Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the Q7F and Q8C. The Korean company will also launch an even more premium Q9 series but has yet to reveal pricing.

Samsung Q8C


Samsung has chosen to position the new QLED models as high-end competitors to OLED models that have taken over a considerable share of the premium TV market. Pricing must reflect that but it still seems quite steep for edge-lit LCD TVs.

You can pre-order the TVs from samsung.com.
