Samsung announced three new UHD televisions on Tuesday, including two curved sets and a monstrous $10,000 addition to its HU8550 series.
At a whopping 85 inches, the new TV is the largest set in Samsung’s HU8550 lineup, though it’s not the company’s largest UHD TV, which is 110 inches. The television will sell for $10,000 when it becomes available later this month.
The two new curved sets — part of Samsung’s new HU7250 lineup — come in more manageable 55- and 65-inch varieties, and will retail for $2,200 and $3,300, respectively, when they hit stores in August. The new curved offerings are powered by a quad-core processor, and include Samsung’s UHD Dimming feature, which adjusts the display’s brightness and contrast. They also have the ability to display content from four different sources onscreen, simultaneously.
Finally, Samsung announced its new HU6950 series, new flat screens meant to be more affordable UHD TV offerings. The sets come with some of the same features as Samsung’s flagships, including UHD Dimming, UHD Upscaling and multiscreen capabilities. The HU6950 lineup come in 40-, 50- and 55-inch options, and will cost between $1,000 and $2,000.
I’m really thinking about getting one of these curved sets. They’re so controversial aren’t they? What are your thoughts? Is a curved set going to be better or worse than what we have now?
