Samsung unveils KS9000, KS8000, KS7500 & KS7000 SUHD TVs

17 Feb 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

In 2016, Samsung will expand its “SUHD” range and offer more flat models. All of them are “UHD Premium” certified for a great HDR picture experience. We can now share details on the new KS9000, KS8000, KS7500 and KS7000 models.

2016 SUHD TVs

Samsung has yet to unveil its full 2016 TV line-up for the US so things might look different there. All details here are based on Samsung’s European line-up.

Samsung’s European KS9000 is equivalent to the US KS9500, but confusingly Samsung will also sell a KS9500 in Europe, which we have more details on here. As for KS9000 it is a curved TV with edge LED, making it look thin and elegant. It will support “HDR 1000”, which is Samsung’s way of saying that it can reach >1000 nits brightness peaks, enabled by quantum dot technology and Peak Illuminator Pro. KS9000 also has a twin-tuner.

KS8000 is the first flat model in the new SUHD range. It comes equipped with 4K, quantum dot technology and Samsung’s Peak Illuminator Pro backlight system, and thus supports “HDR 1000”. Like the other TVs, it will feature Samsung’s “Ultra Black” panel, which is an improved reflection filter based on the “moth eye” principle that other manufacturers have used in the past. It also has a twin-tuner for recording.

This year, Samsung will expand its “SUHD” moniker to the 7 series models. KS7500 is a range of curved TVs in the SUHD range. It offers all picture systems of the KS8000, except for “Supreme UHD Dimming” and “Supreme Motion” systems. It lacks the twin-tuner.

A flat KS7000 will also be added to the line-up. It has the exact same features as the curved KS7500. Samsung has yet to reveal pricing details but it will surely be cheaper than the curved model.

All of Samsung’s new SUHD models are “UHD Premium” certified and will come bundled with the “Silver Smart Control” that can control connected boxes. Furthermore, all of the TVs will support Samsung SmartThings; the company’s protocol for the connected home.

We will publish a full overview of Samsung’s new line-up later. Until then you can learn more here.
