First 49-inch and 77-inch QD-OLED TVs will appear next year: The first QD-OLED televisions are slowly appearing in the Benelux, but you don’t have a big choice in terms of size. Both Sony and Samsung only market their models in a 55-inch and 65-inch format. It is expected that we will only see models in smaller and larger sizes next year.
Sony is bringing its first QD-OLED television to the Netherlands and Belgium this month, in the form of the A95K Series. For the 55-inch version you pay 3,299 euros, while the 65-inch version costs 4,399 euros. Samsung will launch the S95B Series with prices of 2,499 euros for the 55-inch version and 3,399 euros for the 65-inch variant.
According to research firm DSCC, Samsung Display plans to add 49-inch and 77-inch panels to its lineup in 2023. With this, Samsung wants to strengthen its QD-OLED portfolio. At the moment, the South Korean manufacturer focuses mainly on its QLED LCD LED televisions, but it is expected that the focus will slowly shift to OLED technology, at least until the microLED technology is ready for the masses.
It was already published earlier rumor that Samsung is in talks with LG Display for the supply of OLED panels that can also compete with other OLED providers in the middle segment.
