Samsung’s 2023 Neo QLED TVs start at $1,200 — and you can buy them this week

We got our first taste of Samsung’s 2023 mini-LED backlit, Neo QLED TVs at CES 2023, and now we know what (most of) the new models will cost. The company has released pricing for its flagship QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV, as well as its 8K QN800C, and three 4K models: the QN95C, QN90C, and QN85C. All five TVs will be available in a variety of sizes at a mix of authorized retailers starting the week of February 20, 2023. Not every size will be available immediately and the king-of-the-hill 85-inch QN900C remains under wraps for now.

Though there are specific differences among the new 2023 Neo QLED models, all five possess:

  • Mini-LED backlighting: high brightness and wide viewing angles, with up to 30 million points of light.
  • Quantum Neural Processor: 14-bit, AI upscaling of lower-resolution content to 4K or 8K depending on the model.
  • Fast, smooth gaming: 0.1 millisecond response time and 144Hz refresh rates.
  • Gaming Hub: cloud-based gaming for Xbox and other game streaming partners with no downloads, storage limits, or console required.
  • Smart Hub: Samsung’s interface for exploring personalized recommendations for entertainment, gaming, and ambient options, including streaming platforms and Samsung TV Plus.
  • Slim One Connect: cable breakout box that can attach to the back of the built-in stand for cleaner organization of cords and cables.
  • Synchronized sound with Samsung Q and S-Series soundbars.

Samsung’s 8K flagship is, according to the company, “crafted to be the ideal television.” This year’s big improvement is a major jump in backlight control. Last year’s QN900B impressed with deep blacks and super-bright images, but only had 36 areas of local dimming control. The QN900C ups that number to 1,000 areas. It’s also dazzlingly bright at a claimed 4,000 nits of peak brightness. The 8K TV also has a feature called “8K Sound Remastering,” which is intended to solve “the mismatch between theatrically mastered audio and home listening environments.”

Samsung hasn’t said exactly how the more affordable QN800C will differ from the QN900C, but we’re guessing the main point will be brightness. The QN800C likely won’t match the 4,000 nits of the QN900C, but you can still expect it to be a very bright TV.

The EU is about to ban all the best TVs you can buy
Bright paint colors on a Hisense U8H.

The European Union is about to ban most of the best TVs you can buy. And if you think that couldn't affect you, think again.

As of the time of this article's publication, a revised restriction on TV power consumption goes into effect in the 27 European nations that make up the EU on March 1, 2023. If nothing changes between now and then, there won't be a single 8K TV that can be sold in the EU. The rule also will affect a couple of 4K OLED TVs, 65-inch QD-OLED TVs, and at least one high-performance 4K QLED TV.

Samsung just dropped a massive 98-inch Neo QLED mini-LED TV
Samsung 98-inch QN100B series.

In what can only be characterized as an epic play of one-upmanship, Samsung has just announced a new addition to its 2022 4K TV lineup, and it is massive.

Unveiled in Dallas, Texas at the 2022 CEDIA Expo, the new 98-inch Neo QLED 4K TV uses mini-LED backlight technology and is equipped to be Samsung's highest-performing 4K TV to date. Previously, Samsung's 4K TV lineup was headlined by the QN95B and QN90B. The new 98-inch model uses the same processing and panel technology but has a more powerful backlight system.

Samsung 2022 QN900B 8K Neo QLED TV.

Samsung has released its official pricing for its 2022 line-up of 4K and 8K Neo QLED TVs and pre-ordering for these new models is now available via Samsung's website. The TVs include the 8K Neo QLED QN800B and QN900B, 4K Neo QLED models, an update to The Frame 4K TVs, and the somewhat surprising inclusion of Samsung's first QD-OLED TV, which Samsung is simply calling "Samsung OLED (S95B)."

Editor's note: Shortly after announcing that pre-order had begun on these TVs, Samsung reached out to Digital Trends to let us know that the prices provided for the Samsung OLED TV were incorrect. This article now reflects the new, lower prices.
