Samsung confirms its 2023 QD-OLED TVs start at just $1,900, are available now

Ever since Samsung formally announced the $4,500 price tag of its highly anticipated 77-inch S95C 4K QD-OLED TV, we’ve been patiently waiting to hear how much the company’s other 2023 OLED models will cost. Now we know that S90C will be its most affordable 2023 QD-OLED model at $1,900 for the 55-inch screen size. You can order them starting March 20 at most major Samsung retailers, except the 65-inch S90C, which is confirmed, but has yet to be released.

Samsung has also finally confirmed something we reported on during CES 2023: its flagship S95C QD-OLED is also available in 65- and 55-inch models.

Wondering about the differences between the S95C and S90C? It comes down to brightness, sound, and design. The S95C is about 30% brighter than the S90C. The S90C retains the same brightness levels as Samsung’s excellent 2022 S95B.

The S90C gets Dolby Atmos with Samsung’s Object Tracking Sound Lite system, which helps to adjust the sound parameters based on the content, while the S95C has Atmos with Object Tracking Sound+ — an AI-enhanced version of the sound system.

The S95C also benefits from Samsung’s new ultraslim One Connect Box, which puts all of the TV’s connections (power, HDMI ports, and antenna connection) in their own slender enclosure, which can then be piggybacked on the included stand for an all-in-one effect, or separated from the TV using the thin umbilical cord. This lets the S95C be wall-mounted almost flush with the wall.

Both models have Samsung’s AI-powered Neural Quantum processor, which handles the TVs’ billions of colors, as well as 4K upscaling and motion processing. For console gamers, the screens can deliver up to 120Hz variable refresh rates, and PC gamers benefit from Game Motion Plus, which takes that speed up to 144Hz.

Here’s the full lineup of 2023 Samsung OLED TVs:

Sony’s 2023 A95L QD-OLED TV up for preorder in August starting at $2,800
The Sony A95L 4L QD-OLED TV set up on the floor.

In May, Sony announced the details of its 2023 TV lineup, with one very big exception -- its flagship A95L Bravia XR TV based on QD-OLED display tech. Today, we have those details too. The A95L starts at $2,800 for the 55-inch model, $3,500 for the 65-inch model, and $5,000 for the largest 77-inch screen size. All three sizes will be available for preorder starting August 21, 2023. Sony hasn't indicated when preorders will begin shipping to customers.

Sony's prices, as expected, are higher than those of the Samsung S95C and S90C, the only other TVs that are currently based on Samsung Display's QD-OLED panel technology. The 55-inch S95C, for example, is regularly priced at $2,500 -- a $300 savings over the A95L -- however, Samsung is currently selling all of its S95C models at a discount. With a sale price of $2,300 for the 55-inch S95C, the gap grows to $500.

Samsung adds HW-Q900C to its lineup of 2023 Dolby Atmos soundbars
Samsung 2023 Soundbars.

Samsung has been pretty quiet about its 2023 lineup of Dolby Atmos soundbars since it announced the new collection back at CES 2023, but we finally have all of the models, prices, and features. As we already knew, the latest flagship is the HW-Q990C, a monster 22-driver, 11.1.4-channel system that carries forward the legacy of the HW-Q990B from 2022 -- a soundbar that deeply impressed our reviewer. However, it's now joined by the HW-Q900C -- a more affordable version for folks who don't need the 990C's surround speakers, but who nonetheless may want to add them at a later date.

Also new to the collection are two C-Series models that bring the price of better TV sound down to $200 or less. Here's the full lineup.
Samsung Q-Series Dolby Atmos soundbars
In addition to Dolby Atmos compatibility, Samsung's Q-Series soundbars feature Q-Symphony, a feature that lets a compatible Samsung TV enhance the soundbar's own performance through the use of the TV's built-in speakers. Version 3.0 of Q-Symphony also uses the TV’s sound algorithms to analyze each scene to match the TV and soundbar outputs.

After years of bashing OLED, Samsung now set to buy panels from LG
Samsung 2023 S90C QD-OLED TV.

Though it has yet to be confirmed by either Samsung or LG, the two companies have reportedly signed a deal that will see LG Display provide OLED TV panels to Samsung Electronics, according to a report from Reuters. If accurate, the deal marks the end of a long period that saw Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics trading sometimes vicious barbs over the merits of Samsung's quantum dot-infused QLED TVs versus LG's organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs.

Citing sources with direct knowledge of the deal, Reuters said that LG Display will supply 2 million OLED panels in 2024 and boost shipments to 3 million and 5 million units in subsequent years. These panels will initially be 77- and 83-inch units, which suggests that Samsung is looking to bolster the higher end of its TV lineup.
