Last year, Samsung introduced TVs with Smart Evolution Kit, which basically is a port on the backside of the TV that allows you to upgrade the Smart TV features from year to year, up until 2016.

The 2013 Evolution Kit includes a faster processor to speed things up. It also supports the new Smart TV platform that will be installed automatically on your 2012 Smart TV. It works on the ES7000, ES8000 & ES9000 LEDs, and the E8005 & E7000 plasmas. The high-end 2013 TVs also come with the Evolution Kit port so you can upgrade in the future.

Samsung confirms that the Evolution Kit will be available in April for a suggested price of 299 Euro. US pricing details have not been announced yet.
