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:

Sharp OLED TV.

Sharp has been on the fringes of the U.S. TV market for several years, but that might be about to change. The company, which is still headquartered in Japan ,but has been majority-owned by Chinese manufacturing giant Foxconn since 2016, has announced that it plans to sell a Roku-powered 4K OLED TV in the U.S. in spring 2023. It could be the first opportunity for people to buy a Roku TV with an OLED panel. The company will also introduce its latest mini-LED-powered QLED TV, the Aquos XLED.

TCL says its QD-OLED TV teaser from CES 2023 was an error

Just ahead of CES 2023, Digital Trends reported that TCL was intending to ship its first TV based on QD-OLED technology by the end of the year. This reporting was based on information given to Digital Trends as well as many other media outlets both during a private press briefing and in press materials issued ahead of the show. Now, however, TCL is pulling back on those comments.

"A line in the TCL CES 2023 press release confirming plans to launch the brand's first QD-OLED television this year was incorrectly included," a TCL spokesperson told Digital Trends in an emailed statement. "TCL is focused on its award-winning mini-LED technology in 2023 – including the recently announced TCL QM8 98-inch TV."

Roku will start making its own Roku TVs and OLED reference design
A Roku-branded smart TV.

Your next Roku TV may well say Roku on the front. After years of leading the smart TV industry by licensing its operating system to other manufacturers, Roku announced its own Roku Select and Roku Plus Series televisions — the first to bear the Roku name from front to back -- today at CES 2023.

While the names are slightly confusing, the gist is this: There are 11 models spanning from 24 to 75 inches. The Select lineup will top out at 1080p resolution and include a basic Roku Voice Remote, while the Plus Series will sport 4K resolution panels and include the Roku Voice Remote Pro, which is rechargeable. Prices start at $119 on the low end and and top out at $999.
