Samsung's First Sub-$1000 4K TV Launching this Month

If you're looking to make the jump to Ultra HD TV, Samsung has a few new choices for you. The hardware maker introduced a handful of new UHD (aka 4K) models today (June 24), including flat TVs as well as an eye-catching curved model.

On the flat front, Samsung has launched its HU6950 Smart UHD TV series, which allows users to browse the web and use apps via Samsung's Smart Hub interface. The HU6950 optimizes image quality via UHD Upscaling and UHD Dimming, the latter of which is Samsung's term for local dimming. Powered by a quad-core processor, the HU6950 launches late June at $999 for the 40-inch model, $1,499 for the 50-inch and $1,999 for the 55-inch version.

Samsung has also debuted a massive 85-inch version of its HU8550 UHD TV, which will launch at the end of June for $9,999. Sporting UHD Dimming and Precision Black, this TV line is also available in 50-inch, 55-, 60-, 65- and 75-inch configurations.

If you really want to turn heads in your living room, you can opt for Samsung's new HU7250 curved UHD TV series. Like the HU6950, this sleek TV set runs on a quad-core processor and lets users browse the web, stream video and access apps via Samsung's Smart TV platform. Multitaskers can utilize the TV's Quad Screen Multi-Link function, which splits the screen into four sections for watching live TV, using apps and surfing the Net all at once, and all in HD. Samsung's latest curved TV launches in August, with a 55-inch model selling for $2,199 and a 65-inch variation going for $3,299.

These new additions add to an already healthy lineup of Samsung TVs, which run the gamut from affordable LED sets to UHD behemoths like the new 85-inch HU8550.

    Its not like they're hiding the fact, or denying they are using PenTile. So why say they were caught? IF they are using PenTile screens in TVs, would you notice the difference ?
