Samsung Switzerland has communicated the sales prices for the new NEO QLED TV lineup in 2021. The 4K & 8K QLED TVs with mini LED backlights are available from CHF 1,999 upwards (equivalent to € 2,220).
It should come as no surprise to anyone that the prices for Samsung’s “elite models” have risen compared to last year. In contrast to the 2020 models, the NEO QLED TVs finally offer display technology again and not just an infusion or rebranding of the previous year’s models. Means: In 2021 there will probably be another high-end device in the 4K segment.
The 8K QLED televisions have also been adapted. In Switzerland, entry into the NEO QLED world (QE55QN85A or QE50QN90A) costs CHF 1,999, the equivalent of around EUR 2,220. In the previous year it was CHF 1,599, or CHF 400 or 25 percent less.
Better picture quality = higher price
The price increase varies between 100 and 2000 CHF, depending on the size and features. We expect a similar development for Germany. We’d rather pay a few euros more if the picture quality is right again.
In addition, Samsung’s PR agency in Switzerland communicated that the first models should go on sale in mid-March 2021!
