We finish the review of Samsung's KS8000 range by analyzing the smallest model, the Samsung UE49KS8000TXXC . A 49-inch panel flat screen TV incorporating the latest Samsung image processing technology . Although the dimensions are reduced, this TV maintains a SUHD 4K resolution and mounts a 10-bit panel with Quantum Dot Color technology . Among the most prominent features we have HDR 1000Supreme UHD DimmingPeak Illuminator ProPrecision Black and Ultra Black. All this accompanied by one of the best Smart TV systems on the market, Tizen OS . Let's review its characteristics.

The Samsung UE49KS8000TXXC keeps the same design that the models with more inches incorporate. We have a Slim Edge design with a flat screen that is framed by a thin silver frame. The Y-shaped base that holds the TV is also in silver and on the back we find another metallic strip in silver that runs along the entire panel. The KS8000 incorporates the system One Connect to Samsung , so the TV only have connected two wires, thus facilitating hanging the same of a wall bracket.

In addition to an elegant design, the Samsung UE49KS8000TXXC offers all the company's technology in image processing. We start from a very good base. This TV mounts a 10 - bit panel with resolution SUHD 4K í- 3,840 2,160 pixels and technology Quantum Dot Color . Samsung's nanocrystal technology promises sharper and more realistic colors than any other normal LED panel. To help with color, the Samsung UE49KS8000 also incorporates Supreme UHD Dimming technology  that enhances brightness, color and contrast.

One of the big problems with LED televisions is that it is very difficult to show a pure black, leaving many times more like a dark gray. To solve this, the Korean company has incorporated HDR 1000 technology throughout the high-end this year , with which it tries to more accurately display the wide range of light and dark levels in an image. This allows for darker images with more detail, but without losing impact in brighter images. To aid this system, the Samsung UE49KS8000 also incorporates Precision Black technology  , which is intended to achieve deep blacks. Samsung has also improved the panel processing system with  Supreme UHD Dimming, a system that the company claims surpasses even Micro Dimming and achieves much more realistic images.

The Samsung  UE49KS8000TXXC is commanded by the Tizen OS operating system . The Samsung system is a veteran of Smart TVs and offers us all the applications we expect to find on a television. Of course, we have the usual applications such as Netflix or YouTube , but, thanks to the agreements reached by the company with other companies, it is possible to enjoy exclusive applications that other platforms do not have. All this with a system that has been redesigned to offer a new  Smart Hub , more visually attractive and easier to use.

In short, with the Samsung UE49KS8000 we will get a 49-inch television with a very elegant design that incorporates a 10-bit panel with SUHD 4K resolution and the company's Quantum Dot Color system . All this accompanied by various systems to improve the image. And to move the whole set we will have Tizen OS , one of the most consolidated systems in the Smart TV scene.
