Samsung has pulled the dust sheets off two brand new series of 4K televisions – one curved, one flat – as well as introducing a colossal 85in model to its existing HU8550 Ultra HD range.
The flat-screened HU8550 range already includes 50in, 55in, 60in, 65in and 75in models, and the new 85in model will slot in at the top of the range. And with a price tag to match: it’ll set you back the princely sum of US$10,000 (S$12,488) when it goes on sale any day now.

The new set of curved-screened 4K models, meanwhile, is called the HU7250 range and will come in two screen sizes (55in and 65in) priced at US$2,200 (S$2,747) and US$3,300 (S$4,121) respectively. The range offers UHD Upscaling, which’ll turn any source material into 4K (don’t expect it to look anything like as good as a true 4K source, of course); Quad Screen Multi-Link, which lets you split the screen into four sections and have different content showing on all four; and a new five-panel Smart Hub version of Samsung’s Smart TV platform powered by a quad-core processor.
Finally, there’s the new HU6970 4K range, which offers the same features as the HU7250 but with a more traditional flat screen. That’s coming in 40in, 50in and 55in sizes, priced at US$1,000 (S$1,249), US$1,500 (S$1,873) and US$2,000 (S$2,497) respectively.
These exact models may or may not make it here, but slight variants most likely will. We’ll bring you details if and when Samsung announces them.
