Samsung F8500 offers the new Smart TV platform with an updated user interface, TV apps and the Evolution Kit. The Smart TV also allows you to share content to and from a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet.

Samsung says that F8500 is largely similar to the F8000 model that was unveiled at CES 2013. F8500 comes with the same panel and features, and is mainly a design variant.
