Samsung Starts Spring SUHD, UHD TV Rollout
Samsung on Thursday provided details on its rollout of its premium series of curved SUHD TVs and 4K UHD TVs that will vary in display size from 48 to 88 inches in SUHD and from 40 to 105 inches in UHD. Pricing ranges from $2,999.99 for the JS8500 series 55-inch entry-level SUHD model to $9,999.99 for the 78-inch curved JS9100 series SUHD; the flagship series, JS9500, starts in price from $6,499.99.
The SUHD curved models use cadmium-free nano-crystal technology and local dimming. The sets carry the company’s Tizen Smart TV operating system, featuring a user interface that more readily accesses streaming content, and a Quick Connect system to enable easier tethering with mobile devices for a “second-screen” experience, says the company.
Dave Das, Samsung Electronics America’s senior vice president, said the new SUHD models offered 64 times more “color expression” than the previous generation of TV, along with the widest dynamic range of any TV available.
