Samsung unveils 98" 8K QN990C with TCL panel

07 Aug 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung has unveiled a new flagship 8K 'Neo QLED' LCD TV called QN990C that is equipped with a panel made by TCL.

In addition to the recently launched 98-inch Q80C with 4K resolution, Samsung is adding a 98-inch LCD TV with 8K resolution to its 2023 line-up.

The 98-inch QN990C is part of Samsung's 'Neo QLED' range and sits on top of the existing QN900C 8K model. It features an 8K LCD panel, miniLED zone dimming, a 6.4.4-channel 120W speaker system with Dolby Atmos, Tizen with access to apps, and the slim 'Infinite One' design.

Much more expensive than 4K

Samsung has not commented on the launch plans for North America and Europe yet but with IFA 2023 coming up in September there is a good chance that we will here more about this TV as well as Samsung's new OLED TVs with LG panels. In South Korea, the 98-inch QN990C will cost 49.9 million won – roughly $38500 and €35000. This compares to $10000 / £9000 / €10000 for the 98-inch Q80C that features 4K resolution but no miniLED zone dimming. Samsung said that sales of 98-inch TVs in its home country of South Korea nearly doubled in the first half of the year compared to last year.

TCL inside

Not long after Samsung's announcement, TCL CSOT sent out a press release to confirm that it is the supplier of not only the 98-inch 8K LCD panel in the Samsung QN990C but also the 98-inch 4K LCD panel in Samsung and Sony's 98-inch 4K LCD TVs. Of course, this is something that FlatpanelsHD had already reported based on our sources in the industry. It is a VA LCD panel. - "After releasing QN900C 8K Series televisions in 75 and 85 inches, Samsung, with support from TCL CSOT, has finally added to its offering the 98-inch QNC990 globally," announced TCL. - "TCL CSOT's production lines enable efficient production of 98-inch LCD panels, giving them an advantage over 100-inch panels, which can only be produced by the G8.6 generation line. We at TCL CSOT have achieved remarkable success and reputation in this field, with our self-produced 98-inch 4K panel products being widely adopted by renowned brands such as Samsung, Sony, TCL, Xiaomi, Changhong, and Haier," said Jun Zhao, CEO of TCL CSOT.
