Samsung 4K and 8K TV news will really annoy its biggest rivals

It probably won’t come as much of surprise to hear that Samsung’s range of smart televisions continue to lead the way. The South Korean technology firm is renown for producing some the best 4K and 8K TVs in the world and it seems they can’t be beaten when it comes to sheer popularity.

The latest sales update, which rivals won’t like one bit, reveals the company accounted for a whopping 32.4 percent of the global TV market in terms of value. That’s up 3.1 percent from the same period last year and puts Samsung well ahead of the competition.

The sales stats, which come via Korea’s Yonhap news agency, also reveal that things get even better for Samsung in the US and Europe with the firm gaining over 40 percent of the market in these areas.

In fact, Samsung now has a giant 42.5 percent share in North America and a 41.1 percent share in Europe. Coming in second place for worldwide sales is LG (18.7 percent) followed by Sony.

This latest update means that Samsung cements its place at the top and has now been the most popular TV maker for the 14th consecutive year.

If you want something on a smaller budget then Chinese manufacturer, TCL, has recently announced its stunning QLED televisions will go on sale next month and cost a lot less than their flagship rivals.

The entry-level model, called C715K, will land in living rooms from next month with prices starting from a very reasonable £499 – that’s considerably cheaper than Samsung’s £799 QLED starting prices.

For that price, the C715K gets a Quantum Dot Display, HDR 10+, hand-free voice control and access to Android’s smart features.
