We're still not sure what the "S" in Samsung's SUHD TVs stands for, but we've come face to face yet again with the Korean company's new line of television sets—this time at the Samsung Forum 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand. This time, too, we're getting details that are relevant to the local market.
SUHD TV is the manufacturer's marketing speak for small screens that use quantum-dot technology. It's Samsung's way to make displays that produce more colors than standard LCD TVs—for a lower price. Think of it as somewhat like an affordable OLED TV. More deets in the video below.
According to Samsung Electronics Philippines product manager Jane Viola, four sizes of their curved SUHD TVs will be available in the country third week of April 2015. The smallest is the 55-incher, which will retail for around P150,000. If size matters in your house, you can pick from the following variants: 65-, 78-, and 88-inch models, which should go for roughly P300,000, P500,000, and P1.2 million, respectively.
Unfortunately, if you're in the market for something that's larger than 100 inches, you'd have to call a Samsung dealer first. They can bring in the bendable 105-inch SUHD TV for you. Of course, "bigger" means "more expensive," so prepare to cough up approximately P5 million for that.
