For those who have it all, and want to see it all

Designed to provide the ultimate entertainment experience, Samsung Electronics South Africa will be launching its new 85-inch Ultra High Definition (UHD) Smart television, offering four times the resolution of Full HD, at the end of June 2013.

Apart from its size, the new model draws attention for its timeless gallery design aesthetics. The screen is floating in a frame, providing a minimalist design from every angle, and featuring built-in speakers that offer concert-quality surround sound – adding to the aesthetics and beauty of what is displayed.

“UHD delivers clear picture details with flawless images to make TV viewership as immersive as possible without actually climbing into the screen. The difference in quality in fact, is something very few have been able to witness on a television of this magnitude and is definitely something consumers need to see for themselves,” says Lance Berger, Head of Product Marketing TV/AV at Samsung Electronics South Africa.

In line with the imminent launch of this very premium television, Samsung will be conducting a nationwide roadshow to give consumers the unique chance to view the spectacular image quality of the 85-inch Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV, at selected shopping malls nationwide.

“Samsung has been leading the market in visual display innovation and the 85-inch UHD TV is another milestone for the company. A screen of this size offers the ultimate in viewing luxury and we are eager to showcase this recent addition to the Samsung Smart TV range around the country – for the first time,” continues Berger.

Currently retailing at R 385,000, a special introductory offer is available for 85 days ending on 24 July 2013 and includes several unique value-added benefits such as; a five year exclusive warranty, free delivery and four years worth of hardware and software upgrades with the Samsung Smart Evolution Kit. Furthermore, all sales of this premium TV will include a pre-installation inspection at the consumer’s residence where the Samsung service team will go through a detailed checklist with the consumer to ensure that the installation and delivery process runs smoothly.

“With the 85-inch UHD Smart TV, Samsung is taking the television-viewing experience to a whole new level – providing customers with the ultimate in luxury television,” concludes Berger.
