Samsung UBD-K8500 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player coming

Don't make us wait

by Mark Hodgkinson Jan 5, 2016


  • Samsung unveiled its first Ultra HD Blu-ray Player, the UBD-K8500, which is HDR compatible and offers four times the resolution and 64 times detailed colour expression of a conventional Blu-ray player.
    The UBD-K8500 features a sleek, curved front design, and is available for pre-order now and for purchase in the U.S. in March 2016 at a cost of $399. We assume (hope to our God) we’ll get in the UK around the same time.

    The UBD-K8500’s built-in upscaling technology enhances the picture quality from standard Blu-ray discs and DVDs, and consumers can also play CDs. Samsung has partnered with Hollywood studios to ensure consumers have a selection of Ultra HD Blu-rays with HDR picture quality. This year, 20th Century Fox is slated to release more than 100 4K Ultra HD discs with HDR including films like The Martian, Peanuts, and among others.

    We’ll have more on this on this soon.
