Samsung, one of the world's biggest TV makers, has announced its brand-new lineup of high-end SUHD TVs. The price range of the upcoming home entertainment system starts at $1500 for a 49-inch set up. Now, here's the latest round up of update about 2016 Samsung SUHD TV specs, release date and price.
One of the biggest changes in Samsung's SUHD TV is its brightness. The Korean tech giant claims the TV sets have 1,000 nits of HDR brightness, as per reports from CNET. Samsung says this feature gives better viewing experience to users with brighter rooms.
Furthermore, the 2016 SUHD TV's new Ultra Black screen helps to reduce reflections by absorbing light just like what moth's eye does to see better at night.
