The Samsung F9000 series of ultra-high definition (UHD) televisions will go on sale in South Africa at R60,000 for the 55-inch model and R90,000 for a 65-inch TV.

This is according to a press statement issued by Samsung South Africa on Wednesday, 18 September 2013.

Samsung said the TVs will be available at premium retailers across South Africa later in September.

Considering the lack of UHD content, Samsung said it has included its 4-step upscaling technology in the F9000 range, which it says is able to seamlessly convert any standard definition or HD content to UHD-level picture quality.

As with its other high-end TVs, the F9000 will support Samsung’s Evolution Kit, which the electronics maker said allows for future upgrades to the TV without needing to buy a whole new set.

The F9000 series runs on a quad-core processor which Samsung said “enables true multitasking capabilities between content and apps”.

Samsung said it also supports 3D content, and has built-in Wi-Fi and an embedded camera.
