Samsung KN55S9C Curved OLED TV Costs $9,000

Samsung have just announced their first production OLED TV for the U.S market, the Samsung KN55S9C. And just as with LG, their first for the U.S market is a curved OLED TV.

We saw Samsung showing off a curved OLED TV at CES 2013 back in January, but this final production model looks quite a bit different.  It features a “Timeless Arena” frame around the OLED TV which contains the speakers. This is similar to that of their huge 85-inch S9 4K Ultra HD TV which we covered in London.

Another similarity to the 85-inch Samsung is the use of an external input box.  All of the HDMI and other inputs are located in a separate box, with just one cable running up to the TV.

The biggest and most surprising news is the price of $9,000. While not exactly cheap, it’s about $5,000 cheaper than we were first expecting, and also cheaper than LG’s curved OLED model which is currently going for $15,000. The Samsung KN55S9C is available now from Samsung online and selected stores.

Making use of Samsung’s RGB OLED technology to deliver a contrast ratio higher than any LED LCD or plasma TV can offer. It has deeper blacks and better contrast ratio than the best plasma TVs and also has a brighter image, and lower power usage.

It also features Samsung’s 2013 Smart hub powered by a quad core processor, and also features active 3D technology with MultiView technology which allows user to view and hear (thanks to built in ear buds) different TV shows on the TV at the same time. (stay tuned for a video demo of this).

We will hopefully get our own hands on of the Samsung KN55S9C very soon.

  1. I don’t remember ever seenig a vuclip search in any version of UC. I don’t see the point of having single site searches built into browsers. There’s a site search on the vuclip site, use that. Or use Google with a “site:” query filter e.g. “world cup site:vuclip.com” to find world cup videos.Go to wap.ucweb.com with your phone’s browser. It will detect your device and serve the best version, currently 8.2.

  2. Caro Vincenzo,capisco quello che Lei dice e non ho “prove positive” per la tesi che il papa emerito non puo’ piu’ fare il papa perche’ non lo e’ piu’, se non che questo mi sembra il senso delle dimissioni storicamente avvenute e di quella attuale. Ma aspettiamo che la cosa venga autorevolmente chiarita. Cordialmente.

  3. At last, someone comes up with the “right” answer!

  4. Great news, Mary, that you recovered your saffron in time for your New Year's Eve dinner. I'm sure your bread is heavenly with a bowl of bouillabaisse.Happy New Year!

  5. Thanks for spending time on the computer (writing) so others don’t have to.

  6. So that’s the case? Quite a revelation that is.

  8. I noticed yet another fatal gap in logic regarding the theories behind the so-called "cluster" of presumptive "Christian" tombs at Talpiot. If Jesus of Nazareth's bones are in Tomb A and those in charge of interring the occupants of Tomb A and B knew this, why would they carve ANYTHING about a resurrection on an ossuary? To say nothing of a hope in a resurrection brought about by the dead guy's bones in the tomb next door?

  9. I was wondering if you needed the ftp address and password for a quicker downloading of the site, current photos of Phae and I to put on the front page, etc. I’d like the overall look to be current but vaguely familiar. I’d also like to be able to incorporate a shopping cart for the mp3s, video chatting, and some other things to make the site more interactive.Does anybody else have ideas they’d like to see manifested here?
