Black Friday TV deals don’t get BIGGER than this

You can pick up a giant 85in Samsung QLED for just £1,499 thanks to this incredible Black Friday TV deal

If you’ve got the space to accommodate an enormous television, this offer on the Samsung Q70A may be the perfect Black Friday TV deal for you.

Both Samsung and Currys are currently selling the 85in Samsung Q70A for just £1,499 – over £2,000 cheaper than it cost at launch last year. It’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this QLED monster, and in terms of price per inch, this is the best TV deal we’ve seen so far this Black Friday.

Amazon also sells the set, but, at the time of writing, only two were available from third-party sellers for £2,199. So, Samsung or Currys is definitely the way to go with this one, with the former the better option if you already own a Samsung TV and want to get rid of it, as it’s offering £50 off via its “Trade Up” scheme.

The Q70A isn’t a model we’ve tested, but it has much in common with other models in the range. It uses an LCD LED panel with quantum dot filters (hence the name QLED) but lacks the local dimming found on its pricier QLED and Neo QLED siblings. That’s not to say it won’t deliver a decent picture, however – Samsung’s mid-range QLEDs are renowned for reproducing colours with accuracy, detail and plenty of HDR pop.

HDR format support extends to HDR10, HLG and HDR10+ (Samsung chooses not to pay for Dolby Vision support on its TVs), and the inclusion of a single HDMI 2.1 means you can hook this 85in whopper up to your next-gen gaming console and enjoy the benefits of 4K@120Hz and VRR.

If you’re going to have an 85in TV in your house, it better look the part, and the Q70A does just that thanks to Samsung’s sleek AirSlim design. The panel is very thin for a QLED, the bezels around the screen practically non-existent, while the centre stand is reasonably discreet. Of course, the 85in model lends itself particularly well to wall mounting, and everything you need to mount it can be found in the box.

Sound quality is often a weak point of large-screen TVs, but the Q70A benefits from the use of Samsung’s Object Tracking Sound Lite technology. This adds two virtual channels to the pair of in-built speakers to help broaden the soundstage and deliver a more immersive audio experience. Those who own a compatible Samsung soundbar can also take advantage of Q-Symphony Lite, which synchronises the audio output from the TV and your soundbar.

Other attractive features include in-built Bixby, Alexa and Google Assistant, Samsung’s easy-to-use Tizen OS, which offers access to a comprehensive selection of streaming services, and Motion Xcelerator Turbo+, which optimises picture quality when gaming.

It’s not too often that you’ll find an 85in 4K TV from a leading manufacturer going this cheap, and we can only surmise that it’s at this price as retailers are looking to get rid of outstanding 2021 stock. Whatever the reason, however, this is about as big as Black Friday TV deals get.
