Samsung is bringing 8K resolution to the world of ultra short throw projectors with their newly announced 8K laser TV. The Samsung Premiere 8K UST will be the first one with this high resolution.

With this advanced laser TV, Samsung is seeking to reclaim its title as the best ultra short throw projector.

This 8K model will be a big upgrade over the 4K triple laser Samsung LSP9T and single laser Samsung LSP7T.

Samsung 8K Premiere Features

We don't know everything about this brand new projector for 2023, so much of this information is speculative, but here's what we know and what we think so far:

8K Resolution

The most astounding feature of the 2023 Samsung laser TV is of course the fact that it will be the first 8K ultra short throw projector.

8K resolution uses 4X as many pixels to give you the sharpest most detailed image available on a projector.

There isn't a tremendous amount of 8K content currently available. However viewers can still take advantage of the extra pixels because the projector will upconvert any 4K video you send it to 8K. This will give you an even sharper higher quality image.

The 8K Samsung premiere likely uses pixel shifting to achieve this high resolution, similar to how the new line of JVC NZ projectors work.  We speculate that it will be using the same 4K 0.67” DLP chip as their prior UST that has like 25XX x 1517 native resolution but instead of shifting two times to get 4K, it now shifts four times to get 8K.

Super Bright Triple Laser Design

With a RGB triple laser design this Samsung 8K Premiere will offer at least 2800 lumens. However we except it to be even brighter since that is the trend for most of these triple laser projectors. It's believed the Samsung Premiere could be a 4000 lumen projector.

We expect the 2023 Samsung Premiere will have a slightly wider color gamut as well. While the LSP9T covered 106% of the BT.2020 color space, the Samsung 8K UST will likely cover at least 107% matching projectors like the Hisense L9G or the newly announced Hisense L9H.

150 Inch Projection Capabilities

Not only will this new bright projector achieve 8K resolution, it will also be able to produce an image up to 150 inches. Which will pair perfectly with the 150 inch UST screen from Spectra Projection

Where the 130 inch capabilities of the Samsung LSP9T was once the largest screen size you could get with a UST, 150 inches is now becoming standard amongst laser TVs such as the AWOL LTV-3500, Formovie Theater and Epson LS800. This larger screen size capability is part of what makes us believe the 2023 Samsung Premiere may be as bright as 4000 lumens. 

Upgraded Speakers

The new Samsung Premiere 8K will feature an upgraded built-in sound bar. This new speaker system will offer Dolby Atmos which was lacking on the previous models. Rumor has it that it will feature an incredibly powerful 100W Dolby Atmos speaker for powerful multi-directional sound, so there is no need to connect a soundbar. This would make it the most powerful built-in speaker on any UST.

Split Screen Functionality 

This is a really cool feature that will let you divide the display into four quadrants for multiplayer games. We're hoping this will usher in a return to LAN parties.

This feature could also be used for news, TV and most importantly watching multiple sports games at once.

How much will the Samsung 8K Premiere UST cost?

As of right now, we don't know how much the Samsung 8K Premiere will cost. It's safe to assume this 8K UST projector will be expensive.

The 4K LSP9T has a price tag of $6496, so a brand new 8K Samsung UST is going to be priced significantly higher.

For context the 8K JVC NZ7 starts at $11,000. We would expect the 2023 Samsung Premiere to be in this price range. Though because it's a UST with an advanced lens and technology, we wouldn't be surprised to see a $15,000 price tag. Sources indicate that the new Samsung 8K will cost $25,000.

While this would be a high price for most. There are no other projectors like this anywhere in the world.

When will the Samsung 8K Premiere be available?

Typically, Samsung’s offerings that are announced during CES in January make it to the market around spring or summer. So, we can expect The Premier 8K to be available in Q2 2023.
