The 98-inch Samsung [cnet.com] Q900 QLED unveiled here at CES [cnet.com] is one the most massive 8K TVs announced so far, outgunning Samsung's own 85-inch member of the Q900 series [cnet.com] -- first introduced in late 2018 -- as well as LG's [cnet.com] new 88-inch 8K OLED [cnet.com] TV. It's no 219-inch MicroLED TV [cnet.com], however.

Samsung says more sizes of the Q900 series will come to the US in 2019, complete with the "AI upconversion" it introduced on the 85-incher. Other markets, such as the UK and Europe, already have 8K QLED TVs at 65, 75 and 82 inches, so it's a fair bet that those sizes will be in the mix stateside.
When I got up close and personal with the 85-inch Q900 [cnet.com] I found little benefit to its 8K resolution, fancy upconversion notwithstanding. It still delivered excellent picture quality, although at $15,000 I expected nothing less.
Samsung did not announce pricing or availability on the new members of the Q900 series.
