Samsung’s entire 2012 LED line-up is based on the Edge LED backlighting system. ESxxxx characterizes 3D models and EHxxxx are non-3D models. Smart TV is offered in all models except the cheapest one, and ES7500 will incorporate the same voice, gesture and face recognition systems as the ES8000 flagship TV.
