With TVs making the shift from HD to 4K, Samsung has adopted the SUHD moniker – UHD stands for Ultra High Definition but we’ve not worked out what the “S” is for.
At the launch event held on Sydney’s Cockle Bay, we had a chance to see the new TVs in action and the images were stunning. Colours were very clear and put the aging LCD in our lounge room to shame.
The new SUHD TVs use nano-crystal that transmit different colours of light depending on their size to deliver the vibrant, bright colours.
Samsung has worked closely with local and international content providers to ensure consumers will be able access a wide array of movies and TV shows due for release in 2015.
Like many new TVs, Samsung is well and truly on the smart TV bandwagon. They claim to have over 20000 developers creating apps for their TV platform that’s based on their Tizen operating system.
There’s built in access for popular streaming services Netflix, Presto and Stan with some of the first purchasers of 2015 Samsung TVs getting six months of free access to Netflix for six months, allowing them to watch UHD content like House of Cards and Marco Polo.
Samsung has distinct product lines in their range traditional flat screens and curved displays. Sizes start at 55 inches and range up to a huge 88 inches. Prices start at $3199 and max out at $24,999 for the tp-of-the-range Series 9 JS9500 88-inch TV.
