<p align=center><i>Don’t miss anything from FlatpanelsHD. Join our fast growing <a href=/newsletter.php><b>Newsletter here</b></a></i><br><i>Reviews coming up: Samsung B7000, Sony W5500, Sony OLED XEL-1 and Sony ZX1.</i></p>Samsung has just announced their <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1238578938><b>new 6, 7 and 8 LCD TV series with LED</b></a> as well as non-LED LCD-TVs. Now we have gleaned the first info on the new 9 LED series. <br /><br />Besides the 6, 7 and 8 LCD TV series with the LED, the new high-end - and replacement for the A950 series - 9 series is on its way. At the moment we do not have the entire spec list but the 9 series will be launched in summer/autumn 2009 with the official name B9000. <br /><br />The 9 series will - unlike the B6000, B7000 and B8000 – feature a LED backlight with local dimming. The lower TV series utilize a LED backlight with LEDs placed on the sides of the LCD panel; in popular terms Edge LED. <br />Local dimming ensures much higher contrast because the LEDs are placed in zones and controlled locally, like on the <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1236858201><b>Philips 9803 LED Lux</b></a> LCD-TV that we recently reviewed.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungled8-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungled8-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 8 LED" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 8 LED LCD series</i></p><br />Samsung says that the 9 series will also become a member of the Samsung “Touch of Colour” line although the design has not yet been officially revealed. <br /><br />Another interesting feature on the 9 LCD-series is a wireless connection from an external media box, just like on Sony's ZX1.<br /><br />The wireless connection is created from an external media box that transmits the signal wirelessly to Samsung TV. The wireless media box also ensures that the TV can be as slim - or perhaps even slimmer - as the 6, 7 and 8 series, even though the 9 series will feature local dimming, which requires LEDs to be placed behind the panel instead of on the sides.<br /><br />In addition, B9000 series will feature the [email protected], with a Internet function that allows users to access such services as YouTube and Yahoo Widgets. [email protected] also has a built-in USB port that can handle music, pictures and video. <br />Finally you can stream music, movies and pictures from other PCs in your home on a wireless network with the DLNA functionality in the Samsung 9 series. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsung8plasma-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsung8plasma-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 8 plasma" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 8 plasma series</i></p><br />All models in the 9 series will have built-in DVB-T and DVB-C tuners with MPEG4 support. <br /><br />The 9 series will be called B9000 and is confirmed in 46 and 55 inches under the respective names UE46B9000 and UE55B9000. There are no indications of prices yet. <br /><br />We keep you updated on the Samsung 9 series.
