Samsung to launch curved, bendable TVs
Amman, January 15, 2014
Samsung Electronics, a global leader in TV technology, announced it will bring its newly introduced 105-inch U9500 curved ultra high definition (UHD) TV and 85-inch U9B bendable UHD TV to consumers in the second half of 2014.
Following the unveiling of these two new breakthrough models at CES 2014, the company will add them to its lineup of curved and UHD TVs this year.
“Given the tremendous media and industry reception for these new products, we are excited to bring our 105-inch Curved UHD TV and 85-inch Bendable UHD TV to consumers around the world,” said HS Kim, executive vice president of the visual display business at Samsung Electronics.
“People who are passionate about entertainment will have a whole new way to experience the content they love with these exciting new models that showcase exceptional design and UHD picture quality.”
Samsung’s 105-inch U9500 Curved UHD TV is the world’s first and largest Curved UHD TV. The set features an expansive display, curved design and is the largest TV ever with a movie-theater aspect ratio of 21 x 9 to create a truly cinematic viewing experience in the living room.
The combination of the screen size and Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer technology brings depth to the picture and produces a life-like viewing experience, a statement said.
Taking TV viewing to a whole new level, Samsung’s 85-inch U9B Bendable UHD TV is the world’s first and largest UHD TV that transforms from a flat panel to a curved TV design with a touch of a button.
Samsung’s UHD TVs not only support today’s standards -- including HEVC, HDMI 2.0, MHL 3.0 and HDCP 2.2; they are the only TVs on the market that are future-ready, thanks to the Samsung UHD Evolution Kit, the statement said.
The One Connect Box essentially houses the brains of the TV externally, enabling customers to switch out the box with the latest Samsung UHD Evolution Kit to stay up to date on the latest UHD standards, as well as to get access to the newest technology Samsung has to offer, all helping customers protect their investment for many years to come. – TradeArabia News Service
