Samsung’s 2014 Ultra HD 4K TV lineup
Samsung put on an impressive Ultra HD 4K TV show at CES 2014 earlier this year but now the it’s time to hit the register after all that window shopping. First up that massive, and slightly ridiculous, 105-inch curved 4K TV with its spanning 21:9 aspect ratio is still set for release in the second half of this year without any new word on pricing. Heading off with the most expensive Curved 4K TV users will be able to pick up soon is the 78-inch UNHU9000 topping out at $7,999 (about £4,843/AU$8,843).
Things start to get slightly more sensical going down the screen sizes for the UNHU9000 line with a 65-inch set for $4,999 (about £3,026/AU$5,531) and a 55-inch set priced at $3,999 (about £2,421/AU$4,420). The smaller UNHU9000 sets will begin arriving this month and the 78-inch version is due to come later this year. Meanwhile, Samsung’s mid-tier UNHU8700 curved 4K screens will arrive later this spring. Pricing, however, is yet to be announced.
For some non-curved screen options there’s the UNHU8550 series of flat 4K TVs. These are the ones regular consumers will most likely be interested in as they come in a wide range of screen sizes. Plus they have some nice perks like local dimming on each pixel to keep details crisp and create deep blacks. First arriving in March is the 55-inch for $2,999 (about £1,815/AU$3,315) and $3,999 (about £2,421/AU$ 4,420) for the 65-inch. Other sizes such as the $3,499 (about £2,118/AU$3,868) 60-inch and $2,499 (about £1,513/AU$2,762) 50-inch, meanwhile, will arrive in.
