Samsung unveils MU9000, MU8000 & MU7000 4K LCD series

22 Feb 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung will in 2017 launch a range of LCD TVs under the “QLED” banner but if you want something affordable you should consider the MU9000, MU8000 and MU7000 series. These will replace last year’s KS models and offer 4K, HDR, and Tizen, according to Tek.no.

More affordable LCD TVs

The TVs were not on display at CES but were announced at the annual Samsung Forum where the European line-up is unveiled. We expect that at least some of the models will be available in the US, too, but Samsung has yet to confirm this.

The new model ranges will be called MU9000, MU8000 and MU7000. These are LCD TVs with 4K resolution and HDR (High Dynamic Range) built on the same foundation of technologies that has defined previous years’ JSx and KSx models.

The MU models will be priced more aggressively whereas the ”QLED” LCD TVs will be expensive.

More flat TVs in 2017

MU9000 is curved and has, for Europe, been confirmed in 49, 55, and 65” sizes. MU8000 is flat and will be available in 49, 55, 65, and 75” sizes. MU7000 is also flat and will be available in 49, 55, 65, 75 and 82” sizes.

You can find a specifications overview at the bottom.

All three models will be based on the Tizen operating system. 2017 marks the third generation of Tizen and we recently gave you a closer look at the new features. The platform offers access to apps such as Netflix, Amazon, HBO, and YouTube. Samsung is once again emphasizing that the “One Remote” can control connected players and consoles. Input and output ports have been moved to a “One Connect Mini” box to make the TVs slimmer and more streamlined.

Besides MU9000, MU8000, and MU7000, Samsung will launch a myriad of MU6x models. These are mid-range TVs with more or less the same features. FlatpanelsHD will publish a full overview of the 2017 TV line-up later.

Samsung has not announced pricing details but the TV are expected to launch in March/April.
