Samsung Debuts New UHD TV Models Including 85-Incher for HU8550 Series

Samsung's HU8550 Series is currently available in sizes ranging from 50 to 75 inches, with an 85-incher coming this month.

The Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV market will be heating up this summer. Samsung Electronics has announced several new TV models, which will expand the company's offering to six UHD series with sizes ranging from 40 to 110 inches.

The latest and largest of the new additions is the 85-inch UN85HU8550. Promising an extra-large, eye-popping image, this member of the flat-panel HU8550 Series has a 3840x2160 resolution, as well as UHD Dimming and Precision Black features. UHD Dimming can scan the number of zones in the image and adjust brightness accordingly, while Precision Black dims LEDs behind the darkest area of the picture for a better contrast and darker black levels. Other features include Wide Color Enhancer Plus technology, Clear Motion Rate 1200 for smooth action, four HDMI inputs and three USB ports.

This 85-incher also has a quad-core processor, which will make whipping through all of the set's Smart TV features a breeze. Besides access to a slew of web-based streaming services, Samsung's Smart TV platform includes the recently released Smart Hub, which can organize all of your entertainment into five panels right on the home screen. It also has the S Recommendation feature for discovering new content based on your preferences and what's trending. And just in case you still find it overwhelming to navigate through all of the features, this set has voice interaction, which allows you to speak commands for everything from web surfing to powering the TV to "turn off."

Samsung will offer the 85-incher later this month, with a $9,999.99 price tag. However, the company is currently selling the HU8550 in 50- ($2,499.99), 55- ($2,999.99), 60- ($3,499.99), 65- ($3,999.99) and 75-inch ($5,999.99) screen sizes.

Samsung also plans to release the curved HU7250 Series. That curved design boasts a more immersive viewing experience, a wider field of view with a panoramic effect, and a better viewing angle from any seat in the house. The HU7250 Series includes UHD Dimming and upconverting of SD, HD and full HD content to near UHD picture quality. It also has Samsung's own Quad Screen Multi-Link feature, which allows users to turn one screen into four. Other features include the quad-core processor and the Smart TV platform with Smart Hub. The 55-inch model ($2,199.99) and a 65-incher ($3,299.99) will start shipping sometime in August.

Last in the new UHD TV lineup is the HU6950 Series. This collection of flat UHD TV sets has the quad-core processor, the Smart TV options with Smart Hub, web browsing, and the Quad Screen Multi-link feature. Other features include Clear Motion Rate 240 technology, UHD Dimming, four HDMI inputs, and three USB ports. Available this month, the HU6950 Series includes a 40-inch model ($999.99), a 50-inch set ($1,499.99), and a 55-incher ($1,999.99).

"As the UHD TV market leader, we're seeing excellent category growth and adoption among consumers who are looking for the highest resolution and best-in-class picture quality Samsung UHD TVs offer," said Joe Stinziano, executive VP of Samsung Electronics America. "We're excited to introduce another super-sized model and two entirely new series to our UHD TV family. Whether it's a flat or curved UHD TV, Samsung continues to provide consumers the broadest selection of UHD TVs for any home."

All of Samsung's UHD TVs also include support for HEVC, HDMI 2.0, MHL 3.0 and HDCP 2.2, as well as future-proofing options via the Samsung UHD Evolution Kit.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
