Samsung launches a 98-inch Neo QLED TV in the Kenyan market

Samsung has launched a 98-inch Neo QLED TV whose stunning display promises to transform the way consumers experience their favorite movies, sports events, and gaming sessions, bringing them closer to the action than ever before.

With an expansive screen size, the 98-inch Neo QLED TV delivers an unparalleled level of realism, allowing viewers to feel fully immersed in the content they love. Whether it’s the latest blockbuster movie, a live sporting event, or a thrilling video game, users will be captivated by the lifelike visuals and vibrant colors brought to life on this impressive display.

According to market research firm Omdia, the global market size of 85-inch screens has grown exponentially from 180,000 units sold in 2019 to 1.87 million units sold in 2022. Likewise, for 98-inch screens, the global market has increased from less than 1,000 units sold in 2019 to about 160,000 units sold in 2022.

Speaking at the unveiling of the TV, Head of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics East Africa, Sam Odhiambo, said that the Samsung 98-inch TV combines industry-leading picture quality with advanced features to create an unforgettable entertainment experience. “Equipped with cutting-edge resolution, viewers can enjoy incredibly sharp and detailed images that reveal even the smallest nuances in every frame. The TV also incorporates Quantum HDR technology, enhancing contrast and providing a wider range of colors for a more dynamic and lifelike picture,” he said.

“About ten years ago, a 60-inch TV was considered a large TV. But as time went by, 65-inch TVs became mainstream, and now 75-inch and 85-inch TVs have become popular, demonstrating consumers’ growing demand for larger TVs,” said Heejin Chae, TV Product Planning, Samsung Electronics. “In fact, our customer survey showed that 75% of consumers bought, on average, a TV 13 inches bigger than their previously purchased TV model.”

It supports an array of connectivity options, allowing users to effortlessly access their favorite content from various sources.
