Samsung 2012 HDTV Lineup

In 2011 Samsung was the most popular HDTV brand in the U.S, producing and shipping the highest volume.

For 2012 it looks like Samsung have set their sights even higher, announcing a massive lineup of 46 new models across 10 new lines. Seven new LCD lines and three new plasma lines.

It’s interesting to see Samsung introduce so many new lines for this year, after stating that the LCD market is saturated by so many models. This year Sony went the other way, and only announced ten new models.

Lets get down to the juicy details.

Samsung ES8000 Series

Sitting proudly right at the top of Samsung’s 2012 HDTV line up is the Samsung ES8000 series. You can almost tell that this is Samsung’s latest flagship HDTV by just looking at it. Samsung say that the ES8000 series is “more than just a pretty face”, offering the highest image quality, and making it future proof. The ES8000 series can be upgraded in the future with Samsung Evolution Kit, which slots into the back of the HDTV, allowing it to be upgraded, enabling you to have the latest technology without bying a new HDTV every year.

The Samsung ES8000 series is a 3D Smart LED HDTV meaning it offers a whole range of interactive and Internet features such as allowing you to surf the web, while watching the TV, access Netflix, and even Skype with friends and family around the world thanks to the built in webcam.

Samsung ES7500 Series

For the rest of Samsung’s 2012 lineup, the details are few and far between. Just one step down from the ES8000 series in the Samsung ES7500 series. As far as we can tell, the ES7500 range is very similar to the flagship ES8000, if not idential feature wise, appart from the ES7500 has “Micro Dimming” where as the ES8000 has “Ultimate Micro Dimming”. Basically this is where the HDTV controle the LED backlights to brighten and dim in areas of the screen to improve contrast ratios.

It also has a 960Hz refresh, active 3D with shutter glasses, and built in WiFi.  These models run about $300 cheaper than the 8000’s, so in the larger 60-inch Samsung UN60ES7500, there isn’t a huge price difference.
