Samsung curved UHD 4K TV UK release date announced

Samsung has revealed the UK release date for its 55- and 66-inch curved UHD 4K TV models.

You’ll be able to purchase the Samsung curved UHD TVs in the UK from April 14 from a selection of online and high street retailers.

Unfortunately, Samsung claims the pricing for its curved 4K range will depend on the specific retailer you choose to buy your curved panel from.

However, according to the Samsung website, the 55-inch model starts at £2,699, while the 65-inch model is a staggering £3,999.

“Technology has revolutionised the way we consume entertainment, and we believe that the Samsung curved UHD TV is the next phase in this revolution,” said Andy Griffiths, President of Samsung UK and Ireland. “We have high hopes that it will be the next big step-change in how we watch and enjoy our movies, box sets and soaps at home.”

The new 4K UHD curved TVs are part of the HU8500 series unveiled at CES 2014 in January and aim to offer “the ultimate Curved UHD viewing experience”.

Both panels include Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer technology and they are designed with a 4.2m radius curvature optimised for the average viewing distance.

The HU8500 series also offer four step UHD upscaling technology to convert lower resolution content from DVD and Blu-ray discs for example.

Other features include Samsung ‘s PurColour technology to improve colour resolution, special UHD dimming technology to adjust colours, contrast and other details for enhanced image quality.

Plus, you’ll be able to upgrade your TV in the future using the UHD Evolution Kit.

They run on a quad-core plus processor, which Samsung claims is “up to two times faster” than your average quad-core processor.
