Samsung TV Weight & Dimensions 101

Samsung TV Weight & Dimensions 101

You’re shopping for a new TV wall mount and can’t find one that seems to fit your Samsung TV. You’ve measured the sides of your TV, but the measurements don’t seem to line up with the products online. 

Your TV isn’t a custom-made unit, so what gives? 

Believe it or not, you’re incorrectly measuring your TV. TV measurements are calculated differently than other electronic measurements. 

So, how do you measure a TV? How much does a typical Samsung TV weigh? 

In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know when measuring and calculating your Samsung TV’s weight. 

Grab your tape measure and let’s get started! 

How are Screens Measured?

TV screens are measured diagonally.

TV Size

This is due to the fact that many older TV screens (like CRT TVs) were rounded and square, making it difficult to accurately calculate the TV’s measurements by simply measuring their height and width. 

So, manufacturers began advertising the TV’s diagonal length, to ensure users knew exactly how big the TV would actually be. This has since become the standard for TV measurements, allowing manufacturers and users alike to accurately understand a TV’s size.  

To measure your TV, hold a tape measure on one of its top corners, then pull it to the corner of the opposite side. Make sure the measuring tape is taught, then take note of the measurement. 

Now you know how big your TV screen is! 

We recommend using a fabric tape measure for this process, as a metal tape measure could scratch your TV, damaging it.

Knowing your Samsung TV’s weight is extremely important when mounting or shipping it. You may also want to estimate your TV’s weight if you’re planning on carrying it, to avoid picking up a TV that’s too heavy for you. 

The table below includes Samsung TVs’ typical weights, so your Samsung TV may weigh slightly more or less. 

The weights listed below do not reflect a TV’s weight with its stand.

Screen Size Dimensions Weight
50 inches  1118.3 x 644.1 x 25.7 mm 23.6 lbs (10.7 kg)
55 inches 1232.1 x 708.3 x 25.7 mm 32.4 lbs (14.7 kg)
65 inches 1450.9 x 831.4 x 25.7 mm 46 lbs (20.9 kg)
75 inches* 1672.7 x 985 x 34.5 mm  69 lbs (31.3 kg)

*Please note that 75-inch TVs tend to vary greatly in weight. So, if you have a 75-inch TV, we recommend consulting your user manual for the most accurate measurements. 

Wrapping Things Up

All TV screen sizes are measured diagonally, from one top corner to the bottom corner on the opposite side. This ensures that the measurements are correct and will not vary based on the screen’s shape. 

Return to this guide every time you’re unsure of how to accurately measure your TV or want to know how much your Samsung TV weighs. However, if your TV is 75 inches, be sure to double-check its manual, as this screen size varies in weight.
