Samsung's new 2015 Blu-ray players are curved

16 Feb 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung is all-in on curves as a new design language for TVs, soundbars and phones. This year, Samsung will release its first curved Blu-ray players to match the curved TVs.

Last year, we asked; "Does the world need curved TVs?". After having promoted picture quality improvements of curved TVs during the first year of availability, manufacturers are now backpedaling, stating that it is simply a design choice.

Samsung released a curved soundbar last year to match its TVs, and in 2015 the company will release three curved Blu-ray players called BD-J5900, BD-J5700 and BD-J5100. The JS5700 and J5900 will both support WiFi and the latter will also support 3D Blu-ray. There are no signs of Ultra HD Blu-ray players in Samsung’s line-up yet.

An interesting detail is the fact that the Blu-ray players come without Samsung’s Smart Hub, instead featuring "Opera TV apps". Samsung will start using the Tizen operating system in its 2015 Smart TVs, but it seems that Tizen will not be included in the new Blu-ray players.

Samsung’s new Blu-ray players will be available in March for 120, 100 and 80 USD/Euro, respectively. All 2015 models will include “J” in the model names. The same is true for the new TV line-up.
