Only  one 90 series model is available, the FX2490, and at 24 inches uses LED backlighting that gives it a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The speakers are upgraded to 5W at the same time on the lone $420 model.

Samsung is already shipping the 30 series and expects the 90 series to follow in September.
