    The Samsung UE65HU7500TX is the replacement for the UE65F9000 and will have a suggested retail of £3600.The curved version UE65HU8500TX has a suggested retail of £4000.As these models have HDMI2 on board plus the H265 decoder the outgoing models do not seem to be good value even at the heavily discounted prices,since they will still require the upgraded external connection box just to bring them up to HDMI2.

    Curry's are the first major high street name to list the new HU8500 with prices of £3500 for the 55" and £5000 for the 65", I expect the HU7500 to keep the same pricing of the F9000 (maybe slightly cheaper).

    In the States Samsung are selling the HU8550 (the US version of our 7500; confusingly HU7500=HU8550, HU8500=HU9000) for the same prices as the current F9000 which would seem to suggest this is likely to be the case.

    BestAVDeals have listed them a lot cheaper than that, but I've never heard of them before so I'm not sure how credible a source they are. I'd love them to be true but I certainly wouldn't get my hopes up.

    Yes im eyeing a 48U7500 maybe. Hope its out soonish. Spec of the U7500 is hard to clarify right now though if you read the U8550 specs the US version it sounds promising.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the HU7500 is basically just the F9000 with updated design and HDMI 2.0, HEVC etc built in - it seems all the fancy new stuff (PurColor etc) is exclusive to the curved set. The F9000 is a quality set though so that's nothing to be worried about if the price is right.

    Yeh, I've seen that but that's quite a large difference between the two for a TV not yet released :)

    Both AVForums and Trusted confirming a £4000 price point, so looks like the BestAVDeals prices are accurate after all.

    Makes me wonder if the higher Currys preorder prices are designed to move some F9000's before these new sets hit the shops.

    edit: Richer Sounds now have the new ranges up for preorder, confirming the cheaper prices also. They're also the first to reveal the current expected release date, April 14th.

    I'm sure Currys know what they're doing...

    On a separate note, those HU7500 prices look quite tasty.

    Isn't the HU7500 lower spec than last years F9000? I thought it didn't have as good a micro dimming system as last years model and only the curved HU8500 gets the top spec features?

    The HU7500 has micro dimming pro I THINK far as i can make out looking around on google. Which is good apparently micro dimming ultimate and pro are good its just the micro dimming standard system that shows up in some ranges thats not good.

    It is worth noting there are 3 versions of samsungs micro dimming. Standard , pro , and ultimate as i said. Standard was in last years F7000 apparently read this elsewhere it can be hard to find out what system is in which tv though that can be annoying. Micro standard is the one thats not worth having basically hinders more than helps according to an article i read elsewhere about samsungs micro dimming systems.

    Richer sounds have the 65 u8500 only £400 more than the 65 u7500 that says there pretty close with specs. Considering the u8500 is curved too that price difference isnt much.

    What about the Smart LED local dimming function that seems to work so well in the HU8500 according to the avforums review? Is that one also available in the HU7500?

    I think so. Just found a french site that seems to clear up the differences well. Basically the curved bit we know of the u8500 , u8500 also has 1200hz motion the u7500 is 1000hz the u8500 has micro dimming ultimate the u7500 has the pro version. And finally the u8500 has the brand new purcolour/auto depth features but what ive read those are only on curved samsungs this year and linked in some way to the fact they are curved.

    For me micro dimming pro vs ultimate isnt a massive deal only there micro dimming standard isnt good.
    The motion difference no big deal either. 1000hz vs 1200hz.
    So basically its money differences and if you want a curved screen or not.

    Will the 8500 actually look smaller than the 7500 because of the curve? Or, will the curve of the screen reduce the visible area because of the bend, if you get my meaning?

    Thanks in advance!

    Erm according to pro reviews the curved screen does have an impact its especially worth it on really large sizes 65 plus. So your question may have some merit. I guess you cant tell properly until seen in the flesh.
