Samsung Quietly Slashed $30,000 Off Their 98-Inch 8K TV
While doing a little write up this week on the U.S. launch of the Samsung 98-inch 8K QLED TV at Dallas-based retailer Starpower, I bumped into a bit of news that somehow never made it into the headlines—at least from what I could tell in the brief digging that I did. That news: About a week ago, Samsung very quietly decided to drop the price of its brand new 98-inch 8K QLED TV. But it’s not like they just cut a few bucks off of the thing. Rather, Samsung dropped the TV by 30 percent, which translated to $30,000 off the original list price.
In what coverage I was able to find on the reduced price, a Samsung representative told CNET, “The $99,999 price was our introduction/launch price and since launch it was planned to move to the lower price in April.”
If they say so...
