Ridgefield Park, N.J. – Samsung expanded its 4K SUHD TV lineup with three JS7000-series models in 50-, 55- and 60-inch screen sizes at UPP prices of $1,299, $1,599, and $2,099, respectively.
The three new flat-screen LED TVs join five curved-screen SUHD TVs priced from $3,499 to $9,999 with screen sizes from 48 to 78 inches. The new models also join two flat-screen 55- and 65-inch SUHD models at $2,999 and $3,999.
SUHD technology uses a proprietary form of quantum-dot technology to expand color gamut to close to Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) standards. It’s positioned as offering a more cost-effective alternative to OLED TVs.
Samsung’s SUHD technology uses proprietary cadmium-free nano-crystal technology, which is combined with other display enhancements to not only produce a wider color range but also to deliver what the company said are “the deepest blacks seen on an LED screen” as well as “unmatched brightness.”
The SUHD TVs also feature local dimming technologies to minimize black loss, improve contrast, and deliver deep blacks without loss of detail.
The new models can display high dynamic range (HDR) content. They also feature quad-core smart TV platform and Samsung’s Tizen OS for faster control. Other key features include 120Hz refresh rate, full-array backlighting, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, full web browser, Skype video calling, screen mirroring to mirror a compatible mobile device’s display, and ConnectShare Movie to play back music and video from a connected USB device.
Samsung also offers 4K UHD TVs without SUHD technology.
