The new models feature Samsung Smart TV. The new Smart Hub interface organizes entertainment and content into five panels: On TV, Movies and TV Shows, Social, Apps as well as Photos, Videos and Music. The built-in S Recommendation feature helps users discover something new to watch, now or next time. And with Smart Interaction, the F9000 UHD TV is brought to life as consumers use hand gestures or voice commands to navigate and browse.
Precision Black Local Dimming technology is responsible for the high contrast and black levels by dimming LEDs in dark areas of the picture. The new series also features Micro Dimming Ultimate, which combines the use of an algorithm and scanning technology for sharper images and enhanced contrast. The F9000 series comes with 3D technology as well as built-in Wi-Fi and an embedded camera. A quad-core processor enables multitasking capabilities between content and apps.
The F9000 UHD TV comes with 2-way 2.2 channels of 70-watt sound.
Starting July 21, the F9000 will be available for pre-order in the U.S. with select authorized retailers for an estimated retail price of $5,499.99 for the 55-inch model and $7,499.99 for the 65-inch TV. Shipping of the F9000 UHD TV is expected in early August.
