Samsung is releasing several new 4k TVs under their flagship “SUHD” brand this month, and many models are already available to purchase from $2,499 to $5,999. One thing that consumers are quick to ask is what the “S” means in SUHD, as opposed to the standard UHD for Ultra HD. Samsung hasn’t given an exact explanation for what it stands for, so the “S” could mean “Super” or “Samsung” or whatever you want it to mean. It’s more of a marketing strategy to help Samsung’s Ultra HD TVs stand out from the rest. However, the premium TVs do have some features that should be mentioned.
The SUHD TVs employ a new proprietary Cadmium-free nano-crystal technology for more range of color, contrast, and brightness. The sets feature Peak Illuminator technology behind the brightest regions of the picture. And, MultiZone Full Array Back Lighting adds expanded brightness levels across the entire screen. Also, specs indicate the SUHD models have an octa-core processor instead of the quad-core processor found in the UHD models.
Here’s a breakdown of basic specs and pricing for Samsung’s SUHD TVs.
