The 2018 IFA, which will run until Sept 5 in Berlin, might not make history, but the consumer electronics show has nonetheless provided the venue for a number of spectacular announcements.Samsung Q900R 8K
Undoubtedly the biggest news at this year's trade fair: Samsung is preparing to go ahead with the European launch this fall of its first ever 8K TVs, notwithstanding a notable lack of compatible content. This will not hold back the Korean manufacturer, which is counting on its proprietary, artificial intelligence, upscaling technology to cleanly convert 4K to 8K video. Televisions in the Samsung Q900R range will come in three sizes (65, 75 and 85 inches) and are expected in stores in October. Prices will range from €5,000 to €15,000 (RM23,958 to RM71,866).
