Samsung has announced the US availability of its Samsung S85D OLED TVs, a new, cheaper OLED TV series sold in screen sizes ranging from 55 to 77 inches.

The Samsung S85D series sits beneath the flagship Samsung S95D and mid-range Samsung S90D OLED TVs. We selected the S90D’s predecessor, the Samsung S90C as our best TV in 2023 for its compelling combination of performance and value, and expect that the new S85D series will follow in its footsteps.

Pricing for the S85D series OLED TVs is as follows:

  • 55-inch: $1,699.99 (around £1,350 / AU$2,560)
  • 65-inch: $2,099.99 (around £1,670 / AU$3.165)
  • 77-inch: $3,399.99 (around £2,700 / AU$5,120)

According to Samsung, the new OLED TVs feature the same NQ4 AI Gen2 Processor and 4K AI Upscaling found in the company’s other 2024 OLED TVs, the flagship S95D series included. They also support Pantone Validated Colors and come with the Samsung TV Plus free TV portal and Samsung Gaming Hub.

Samsung S85D TVs provide four HDMI 2.1 ports with 120Hz and ALLM support. For audio, they have 2 x 20-watt built-in speakers, Samsung’s Object Tracking Sound Lite, and a Q Symphony feature that lets the TV’s speakers work in tandem with a Samsung soundbar for an enhanced presentation.

Along with the S85D OLED TVs, Samsung also announced US pricing and availability for its new 42-, 48-, and 83-inch S90D OLED TV models. Pricing for other sizes had previously been announced.

  • 42-inch: $1,399.99 (coming soon)
  • 48-inch: $1,599.99 (around £1,270 / AU$2,400)
  • 83-inch: $5,399.99 (around £4,290 / AU$8,140)

With their smaller screen size options, 144Hz refresh rate with FreeSync Premium VRR, plus the Samsung Gaming Hub cloud-based gaming portal found in the company’s other TVs, Samsung is positioning the S90D series as the perfect option for gamers.
