Ready, set, buy: Samsung announces pricing, availability on its 2015 TVs

Samsung introduced a slew of new SUHD and UHD TVs on the second day of April at an event in New York. All of the new models feature Samsung’s cutting-edge TV technology, and 4K pixel resolution, while the best of the best sport a lot more colors, and high dynamic range for ultra-bright details.

Here are all of the new TVs Samsung added to its 2015 lineup, with the pricing and availability you’ve been waiting for since CES 2015.

Samsung Curved SUHD TV lineup

Samsung’s JS9500 TV has a curved screen that features the company’s nano-crystal technology, greatly expanding color gamut for a picture closer to what movie directors have always wanted us to see. PurColor helps manage color output for a natural appearance, and the company’s Auto-Depth Enhancer, feature toys with contrast to give a greater sense of depth. The TV comes with Samsung’s One Connect Box, which can be constantly updated with the latest model to keep the TV up to date with the most UHD standards that are still in the works. Pricing for the JS9500 Curved SUHD TV Series starts at $6,500, and the TV line will arrive in stores this April.

Next up in Samsung’s lineup of curved SUHD TVs is the JS9100. This TV has Peak Illuminator Pro technology, which uses increased LED illumination to brighten up the lightest parts of the picture. It also features UHD upscaling, so that even low-resolutions images appear crisper. The Samsung JS9100 arrives in May, and you can get the 78-inch model for $10,000.

The last curved SUHD TV in Samsung’s set is the JS9000, which has an edge-lit LED panel, the company’s nano-crystal technology, Precision Black for better black levels, and Peak Illuminator Pro for increased brightness when called for. This TV works with Samsung’s Tizen-based Smart TV platform, and can be hung on a wall or placed on a stand. The JS9000 Curved SUHD TV comes in three different sizes: a 48-inch model for $3,500, a 55-inch model for $4,000, and a 65-inch model for $5,000.

Samsung Curved UHD TV lineup

Samsung also updated its UHD TV line with a few new models. First up, we have the JU6700 Curved UHD TV with its 4K UHD resolution. It’s got PurColor technology, so colors don’t look oversaturated or false (but lacks the wider color gamut of Samsung’s SUHD TVs). This model is coming to stores in the spring in three size options, including a 40-inch model for $950, a 48-inch model for $1,150, a 55-inch model for $1,500, and a 65-inch model for $2,700.

Next, Samsung added the JU7500 Curved UHD TV, which has UHD upscaling technology to bring your older, less high-resolution files up to 4K UHD quality. It, too, is coming this spring in a few sizes: a 40-inch model for $1,400, a 48-inch model for $1,600, a 55-inch model for $2,000, a 65-inch model for $3,000, and a 78-inch model for $6,000.

Samsung SUHD and UHD flat TVs

If you’re not a fan of the curved TVs, Samsung also introduced two flat TVs — one in the SUHD line, and the other in the UHD line.

Samsung’s JS8500 SUHD TV may be flat and look like a normal TV, but it has the same high-quality screen with Precision Black technology, nano-crystal tech for wider color gamut and high dynamic range. The TV works with Samsung’s Tizen Smart TV platform, and it’s available now in a 55-inch model for $3,000 and a 65-inch model for $4,000.

On the UHD side, there’s the Samsung JU7100 UHD TV, which features Peak Illuminator and UHD Dimming, for bright whites and deep blacks. It works with the Smart TV platform, and it will be available in April. The 40-inch model costs $1,400, the 50-inch model $1,500, the 55-inch model $1,800, the 60-inch model  $2,500, the 65-inch model $3,000, and the 75-inch model $5,000.

We’re reporting live from the event, so we’ll be sure to get you hands on impressions of all the new TVs and everything else Samsung reveals.

Samsung adding Auracast and 360 Audio to more TVs, phones, and earbuds
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

Samsung today announced a series of updates for some televisions and a trio of earbuds that will add features across the board, and also allow everything to play together that much more.

Auracast is one of the more interesting features on the way. It essentially allows one device to pick up a signal being broadcast by another, not unlike a radio. Samsung has had Auracast on select TVs for a while now, and it's been available on multiple Galaxy Buds earbuds. Now, it's expanding to phones and tablets. The ability to broadcast will hit the Galaxy S24 and S23 phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, and the Tab S9 series. (They'll all need to have One UI 6.1 or newer.) And the ability to listen to an Auracast broadcast is coming to the Galaxy S24 series, S23 series, Z Fold5, Z Fold4, Z Flip5, Z Flip4, A54 5G, M54 5G, Tab S9 series, Tab S9 FE series and Tab Active 5 5G with One UI 5.1.1 or above.
