Samsung 'Ultra HD' TVs to launch in UK this month

Samsung's new Ultra HD TVs are four times sharper than the current HD sets

Electronics maker Samsung has revealed that its 55 and 65-inch “Ultra HD” televisions will be available to buy in the UK in July.
Retailing at £4,000 and £6,000 respectively, the so-called Samsung F9000 TVs offer four times the resolution of current full HD TVs for brighter, clearer images and a more immersive viewing experience.
The TVs come with Samsung’s built-in recommendation engine, which lets viewers search content and get recommendations based on their previous viewings, and voice interaction technology so that viewers can control their TV using everyday language.
They run on quad-core processors and are also equipped with 70W speaker output, which when combined with high-definition audio technology from DTS provides a surround sound experience.
Ultra HD – also known as 4K because it has nearly 4,000 horizontal pixels – has been touted “the next big thing” in consumer electronics. With a resolution of 3840 x 2160, Ultra HD TVs are exactly four times sharper than the full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.
Many current movie cameras already film above 4K resolutions, and other electronics manufacturers including Sony, LG and Toshiba have all launched Ultra HD TVs, several with giant screens. Back in April, Samsung launched its own 85-inch 4K TV, known as the S9.
