Samsung’s 85-inch S9 UHD 4K TV, first unveiled at this year’s CES, has gone on sale at Selfridges. And before you ask, you probably can’t afford it.
Setting you back a whopping £35,000, you at least get a lot of TV for your money, with the 85-inch LCD panel running at a sumptuous 3,820 x 2160 resolution. It’s also housed in a unique (arguably ugly) frame to support its considerable heft, allowing the TV to be easily rotated and tilted, as well as discreetly hiding a 2.2 speaker array with 120 watt output which should be a fair sight more impressive than what the usual flatscreen manages in terms of audio.
“We are very excited to launch Samsung’s 85-inch S9 Ultra High Definition LED TV exclusively in our stores,” said Richard Jones, Selfridges Technology Buying Manager (who we can’t help but imagine has £-signs where his eyes should be).
“This is the world’s first Future Ready UHD TV. The quality and definition breaks new boundaries in the world of HD TV. Our customers expect the latest and finest technology for their homes and personal use. We hope to pioneer the way forward in the latest releases and Samsung is exactly this. I’m sure it will be a huge success.”
