We continue to review the televisions that make up the high-end of Samsung for 2016. Today we want to talk about the Samsung UE55KS8000TXXC . A 55-inch TV that incorporates a 10-bit flat panel with 4K SUHD resolution and Quantum Dot Color technology . The new KS8000 series offers all of the company's image enhancement technology to users who don't like curves. Systems such as Precision Black , Peak Illuminator Pro , HDR 1000 , Supreme UHD Dimming or Ultra Blackthey will allow you to achieve an image quality that will not disappoint. Let's go over these features in more detail.
The Samsung UE55KS8000TXXC offers us the same design that we have seen in previous models. The panel is framed in a virtually priceless silver-colored frame. The TV includes a Y-shaped base , also in silver. On the back we have a black panel that shows a very interesting brushing effect, along with a silver strip that runs along the entire back and gives continuity to the base. A rear part that is quite clear of cables thanks to the One Connect exterior connection system .
Samsung has called this new design Slim Edge , that is, a frameless design with a really thin panel. Without the base, the thickness of the panel is only 40.8 millimeters .
This elegant design is accompanied by the best technologies for the treatment of the company's image. The Samsung UE55KS8000 mounts a panel of 55 inches with a resolution SUHD 4K í- 3,840 2,160 pixels . It is a 10-bit panel that uses Samsung's nanocrystal system . Quantum Dot Color technology achieves sharper and more realistic colors than a conventional LED panel. In addition, the company has introduced HDR 1000 technology to achieve dark areas with greater detail and a more impressive brightness and color.
But these three main characteristics are not alone. The Samsung UE55KS8000 also incorporates Precision Black and Peak Illuminator Pro technologies to try to improve one of the great problems of LED panels, that blacks do not look gray. And with Ultra Black, the Korean company wants to minimize reflections on the TV screen as much as possible, another of the great problems of this type of panel. All this accompanied by the Supreme UHD Dimming processing system with which the brand improves the brightness, color and contrast of the images.
At the moment the content with 4K resolution is quite scarce, so the Samsung UE55KS8000 incorporates the SUHD Remastering Engine scaling engine to ensure that we can see lower resolution broadcasts with an acceptable quality, such as DTT or some streaming videos.
And precisely to watch streaming videos, among other things, the Samsung UE55KS8000 comes equipped with the latest version of the Tizen OS system . The Korean company has improved its system for Smart TV and has included a new main screen, or Smart Hub , with which we will have more direct access to our favorite programs and applications. All this driven by a powerful Quad-Core processor .
In short, the Samsung UE55KS8000TXXC offers a 55-inch flat screen with the latest Samsung imaging technology and a Tizen OS operating system capable of offering the best applications of a Smart TV . The Samsung UE55KS8000 will be available on the market in the next few days with a price of around 2,300 euros .
