Samsung to Start Pre-Orders for 55- and 65-inch F9000 Ultra HD TVs on July 21

We've been hearing about Ultra HD (4K) TVs for a few years. Companies have finally started shipping sets to the consumer, but most are pricey -- and sort of huge. The average Ultra HD TV clocks in around 84 inches. However, what's a 4K fan to do if they don't have room for one of those massive sets?

Think about buying a Samsung. In addition to the recent 85-inch UN85S9, the company has been talking up 55- and 65-inch models under the F9000 Series. Now, it looks like those smaller sizes will start shipping very soon.

Samsung just announced plans to start taking pre-orders for both sets beginning July 21, 2013. That's in less than two weeks! A few weeks later, those orders will start shipping -- sometime in early August.

The hook on these sets is that each one has a 3840-by-2160 image, which is four times the resolution of today's 1080p HDTV. Besides that eye-popping image, both models have the Quadmatic Picture Engine, a four-step process that includes signal analysis, noise minimization, UHD upscaling, and detail enhancement to upconvert SD and HD.

Both models boast better contrast and black levels via Black Local Dimming technology and Micro Dimming Ultimate. The F9000 Series also features 3D options, 2-way 2.2 channels of 70-watt sound, and built-in WiFi.

Having the WiFi and a quad-core processor makes for a better Smart TV experience. Of course, these TVs provide access to all sorts of web-based services, as well as Samsung's brand new Smart Hub interface. That perk includes all of the new dynamic menu panels so users can manage, navigate and search for different types of content. Those panels include "On TV," "Movies & TV Shows," "Music, Photos & Clips," "Social," and "Smart TV Apps."

Also worth noting is that each set is compatible with Samsung's add-on Evolution Kit. That way, users can upgrade the TV and its software in the future, if needed.

"Revolutionizing the home entertainment viewing experience is a hallmark of the Samsung brand," said Joe Stinziano, executive vice president at Samsung Electronics America. "The F9000 series are Evolutionary TVs that will give consumers great peace of mind in their entertainment investment. Now home entertainment lovers will have the opportunity to truly see and enjoy their favorite shows and movies like never before, in crystal-clear ultra high-definition, and in the beautifully designed 55- and 65-inch sizes they demand."

Samsung will start taking orders for the F9000 Series on July 21, with plans to ship sometime in early August. Expect the 55-inch model to be listed with an MSRP of $5499.99, with the 65-inch set priced at $7499.99.

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
