In 2022 Samsung launched its first ever commercially out there QD-OLED TV (although it dropped QD from the official title) with the Samsung S95B OLED TV. In our assessment, we known as its image “sensational” – because of its tech that mixes the very best components of QLED and OLED shows – and awarded it a five-star assessment due to its prime quality. It was probably the greatest TVs of final yr on the premium finish. The 55-inch mannequin set you again $1,799 / £1,999 / €2,099 at launch, and the 65-inch mannequin price $2,799 / £2,999 / €2,999.
Due to how properly the 2022 mannequin carried out, however with some drawbacks, we’ve been eagerly awaiting particulars about this yr’s Samsung S95C and Samsung S90C and eventually, Samsung has revealed the worth of its new screens – a minimum of in Europe.
The Samsung S95C OLED TV will price you:
- 55-inch – €2,500 (round $2,650 / £2,200)

The greenback and pound costs are estimates primarily based on present trade charges – Samsung’s pricing usually doesn’t observe trade charges precisely so we’ll have to attend for the official figures to be revealed. Nonetheless, by evaluating the European costs for its 2022 mannequin with its 2023 TVs, we are able to see that the top-of-the-line S95C will probably be slightly pricier, whereas the much less technically spectacular S90C will probably be a tad cheaper than what’s come earlier than.

For that larger price, the S95C will ship some upgrades over its predecessor. Samsung boasts the brand new TV is 30% brighter than its earlier iteration, and with higher anti-reflection efficiency in vivid rooms, which was a difficulty with the earlier mannequin. The audio is getting a lift too, with the S95C utilizing a 4.2.2 channel speaker system.
For comparability, the S95B solely had a 2.2.2 setup whereas the upcoming LG C3 OLED makes do with a 3.1.2 system.

The S95C isn’t good nevertheless: it nonetheless lacks DTS:X help and continues to snub Dolby Imaginative and prescient HDR.
As for the S90C, it seems to be to supply lots of the identical options because the S95C however has a less complicated speaker setup and a pared-back model of Samsung’s Object Monitoring Sound System (named Object Monitoring Sound Lite). It can even be thicker, as a result of the connections will probably be on the show, reasonably than in a separate One Join field (which the S95C can have).
We’ll have to attend and see what costs Samsung settles on outdoors of Europe – in addition to take a look at these TVs out to know in the event that they’re nearly as good as Samsung guarantees – and whether or not the worth rise stops te S95C from being in rivalry with the very best OLED TVs out there at present.
