Hot on the heels of the UK launch of the 85-inch S9 UHD 4K TV in April this year, the screens are four times as sharp as full HD 1080p screens when displaying native 4K content.

Each set uses Samsung’s Quadmatic Picture Engine, which aims to deliver superb brightness and contrast levels along with pin-sharp detail, while micro-dimming technology results in richer blacks and brighter whites.

With 4K content a little thin on the ground, 4-step upscaling techniques will squeeze the most out of 1080p content, and even standard definition materials.

Samsung’s Smart TV interface also features, with voice activated controls and the S Recommendation system helping you find TV shows tailored to your tastes. The Smart Evolution feature will also allow owners to upgrade the processor and software of the television further down the line through sold-separately modules, keeping the set up to date even many years later.

Considering the screen size and 4K tech packed in here, both sets are quite reasonably priced. You’re looking at an RRP of £3999.99 for the UE55F9000, with the UE65F9000 sitting at an RRP of £5999.99.
