CES 2013: The 85-inch Samsung UN85S9 television

1:47 /

David Katzmaier takes a look at the huge 4K 85-inch Samsung UN85S9.

Hi. I'm David Katzmaier from CNET. I'm here with the Samsung UN 85S9. This is an 85-inch Ultra-high definition 4KTV, the largest Samsung is coming out with this in March. So this TV is gonna be a little bit bigger than the 84-inch TVs we've seen earlier but it does have similar specifications. One of the big differences though is that the set has a fuller ray backlight around the back which means it doesn't have to adulated. It has 4 LEDs behind the back. Samsung also included local dimming on this set so those 2 might actually improve picture quality a little bit beyond in terms of what we've seen before. The set of course has 4K ultra-high def resolution that means 4 times the pixels of a standard 1080p TV. And on the other hand, there's no 4K content currently available of course this TV will upscale standard high-definition to fill that bar screen and all of those pixels. As you can see this set has a unique design that Samsung calls it Timeless around the edge is the thin black bezel and it kinda sits among the larger frame. You can actually move the set up and down, on the frame or you can even tilt it a little bit horizontally. So it's one of the more unique designed that you've seen that's pretty cool. There's actually a little camera hidden along the top there. That camera is used for Skype and also for Samsung gesture control, voice recognitions and other features on this television. You can actually speak to the TV like previous Samsung televisions. And there's a new touchpad remote included in all Samsung high-end smart TVs. This one is no exception. You can actually talk at the microphone on the remote itself. So all told a loaded television, there's even speakers along the bezel there on the outside. So that's a quick look at Samsung's UN 85S9 UHD 4K television. I'm David Katzmaier from CNET.
