Samsung Q900R 8K QLED TV Unveiled at IFA 2018

Earlier today - August 31, 2018 - at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany, Korean Giant Samsung formally introduced their first ever 8K QLED TV named Q900R.

8K, which has incredible image dimensions of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels, is the latest generation in a long ling of ultra-high-res displays.

8K has 16 times the pixel-density and resolution of Full-HD resolution at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and 4 times that of 4K at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.

Although there are hardly any 8K content that can be easily accessed by consumers online as of writing, it is definitely nice to see Samsung joining LG and Sharp in coming up with TVs that are ready to display these videos once they become available for consumption.

I mean, do remember when 4K videos were still so rare? Now, all flagship level smartphones can shoot videos in 4K and Youtube even lets you watch videos in that resolution. That said, I don't think it will take too long for 8K to also be treated as part of the "norm".

Samsung Q900R 8K QLED TV will be available in 65, 75, and 82-inch variants. However, as yet, Samsung hasn't disclosed the official suggested retail prices of the said variants. I am expecting them to be very expensive, though -- catering to ultra-rich or corporate consumers.
