The Price Tag On Samsung's 85-Inch 4K TV Will Make You Weep

If you thought Sony's 84-inch 4K TV was expensive at $US25,000, then think again. Samsung has announced the pricing of its new flagship model — and you could buy a number of cars with the same cash.

Samsung's new 85-inch S9, which we described as "massive, beautiful and everything wonderful that can be wonderful about a TV", will initially go on sale in South Korea. When it does, it will cost 40,000,000 Korean won — which is $US38,000.

Sure, you get quite a lot of technology encased in that TV — a huge and beautiful Precision Black Pro LCD panel, sophisticated built in 2.2 sound, and a quad-core CPU to power the behemoth along — but: $US38,000.

So here's a fun game: if you had the requisite bundle of cash lying around, would you buy this TV or something else altogether? [Korean Newswire via Engadget]
