If you want to live large, you're going to need Samsung's recently announced 98-inch QLED 8K TV, which of course holds the title of the largest TV available in the country right now.

With pin-sharp picture quality, innovative smart features and for the first time in Australia, 8K resolution (even though as yet, there is no 8K content available) you can rest assured of an immersive and premium cinematic experience.

Available now at selected retailers, Aussies will pay $99,999 for the bragging rights and a premium price that equates to a smidge over $1,000 per inch of 8K QLED goodness.

While the price might be a tad eye-watering, in the US it's also advertised at $99,999 in USD, indicating that there's no apparent 'Australia Tax' in this case, which is refreshing.

Jeremy Senior, Head of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Australia, told StereoNET:

As the pinnacle of our TV range, the 98-inch QLED 8K is the ultimate in home entertainment. This TV delivers levels of immersion and picture quality the likes of which Australians have rarely seen.

While there is no commercially available native 8K content or source players, yet, Samsung says its 98-inch whopper “uses the power of machine learning to analyse and upscale low-resolution content to stunning 8K, while also allowing for playback of native 8K content. “

So whether you're streaming Kayo, the latest season of Black Mirror or even gaming, the proprietary AI technology can recognise and upscale content, regardless of the native resolution, to pristine 8K resolution.

Jeremy Senior continued:

This is a TV like no other. The clarity is breath taking and it is something that needs to be experienced in person. We encourage Australians to head in-store to see Samsung’s latest innovation in TV technology.
