Samsung Electronics has introduced a new 85" model to the HU8550 Series and two new, Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV series – the HU7250 Curved UHD TV and the HU6950 UHD TV series. The addition of the new products further expands Samsung’s UHD TV offering to six series ranging in screen sizes from 40" to 110".
As one of Samsung’s flat-panel UHD TVs, the HU8550 promises to deliver life-like UHD picture quality and is packed with Smart TV capabilities. Paired with UHD Dimming and Precision Black, the HU8550 delivers very high contrast levels. The 85" model will be available late-June for $9,999.99. Samsung’s HU8550 UHD TV is currently available in a wide-range of screen sizes, including 50" ($2,499.99), 55" ($2,999.99), 60" ($3,499), 65" ($3,999.99) and 75" ($5,999.99).
The curved UHD TV design gives a wider field of view that creates a panoramic effect that makes the display seem even bigger than it is. Movies, sporting events and video streamed from onboard apps can be enjoyed at four times the resolution of Full HD. With Samsung’s proprietary UHD Upscaling, the HU7250 Curved UHD TV upconverts SD, HD or Full HD content to near UHD picture quality. The HU7250 Series also features UHD Dimming, which adjusts brightness and virtually eliminates image distortion. With Samsung’s Quad Screen Multi-Link feature, consumers can transform their TV into four screens to access live TV, streaming video and the web all at once.

Samsung’s HU6950 Series Smart UHD TV models feature some of the same technologies found on Samsung’s flagship models, such as UHD dimming, UHD Upscaling and a Quad Core Processor. The new navigate 5 panel Smart Hub organizes favorite content and apps in one place. The HU6950 UHD TV also offers web browsing capabilities and its Quad Screen Multi-link feature allowing consumers to split their screen into four panels.

Whether flat or curved, all of Samsung’s UHD TVs support today’s standards – including HEVC, HDMI 2.0, MHL 3.0 and HDCP 2.2 – and tomorrows, thanks to the Samsung UHD Evolution Kit. The One Connect Box houses the brains of the TV externally, enabling users to switch out the box with the latest Samsung UHD Evolution Kit (Sold Separately) to stay up to date on the latest UHD standards, as well as get access to the newest technology Samsung has to offer.
