Manufacturer's Description

Surround your senses and be part of the action

Samsung's revolutionary Curved TV shows you the finest UHD picture quality, depth and detail a UHD screen can offer. Immersive viewing makes you feel as though you are right in the middle of the excitement. Also, the gently curved UHD screen gives you uniform and balanced viewing from all areas of the screen.

Lifelike viewing with automatic depth enhancement

Flat images come to life for a surreal viewing experience with Samsung's Auto Depth Enhancer. Your Samsung Curved TV will give you a greater feeling of depth by applying different levels of contrast enhancement to different areas and objects of the screen, making your entertainment more immersive and enjoyable. You truly have to see it to believe it.

The leading Smart TV platform now faster with further UHD streaming, catch-up and games services.

Use the latest apps to access the best UHD content on Netflix and Amazon with further providers coming soon. Instant search for content makes it faster to find the programmes and movies you want while you are still watching TV.

UHD upscaling enhances the quality of all of your viewing.

Thanks to the Samsung UHD Picture Engine, you can enjoy various kinds of content with near UHD-level picture quality, even if it's not from a UHD source. Samsung's innovative processing enhances broadcast TV shows and movies as well as video on demand and more. That means not only does it process UHD sources at crisp 4K resolution, it even converts lower-resolution content to a level of clarity that's almost like Ultra High Definition.

Peak Illuminator Ultimate for the most amazingly bright images possible without using additional power.

Peak Illuminator Ultimate saves energy in black areas and uses this to make bright images even brighter making them more amazing than ever before. This technology uses saved power to create additional brightness.

Your TV and mobile devices in perfect sync

Samsung Easy Sharing makes it easy to share content between your TV and mobile. Whether it's a fun video or that must-see TV show Samsung Smart TV picks up the signal when your device is close and seamlessly plays the content perfect for the big screen. It works the other way around, too, so you can move about your house while viewing your favourite content on your device.

A more detailed picture made for UHD resolution

Samsung's advanced UHD dimming technology brings the ideal level of contrast and colour to your UHD viewing. The higher resolution of UHD also means that the picture requires more processing for a highly-detailed image. That's why Samsung UHD dimming technology has been developed to process black and white as optimally as possible and produce colours that are far more vivid.
