Samsung's 55-inch OLED TV to Hit UK September 5

Earlier this week, Samsung announced that it was bringing its own 55-inch curved OLED, the KN55S9, to European shoppers. The company on Tuesday revealed European pricing for its massive curved TV and said that the TV would go on sale in the UK, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands starting today.


According to Tech Radar, those in the UK with the money (and desire) for this TV will have to wait a bit longer. According to TR, the TV will be arriving at "specialist retailers" on September 5, which is almost a week and a half away.

Samsung's curved OLED TV was first launched in Korea in June of this year. The TV has yet to make it to the states, though previous reports suggest it won't be too long. Back when LG's OLED TV hit in July, Value Electronics owner Robert Zohn told CNET that shipments of Samsung's panel were on the way. Zohn said that he believed he'd be the first retailer to sell the Samsung Curved OLED TV, the KN55S9, in the United States.

The KN55S9 packs 4 x HDMI, 2 x USB, 1 x LAN, 2 x component, 1 x composite, WiFi, Samsung's SmartTV 2.0, a 1980x1080p resolution, and a quad-core CPU. We'll keep you posted on local pricing for the United Kingdom.

    Not a fan of the way the industry is going about this.

    So they release 4k resolution and OLED at the same time (all of which are stuck at 1080p).

    Not that you could afford either tech; but its frustrating to see them try to sell two new technologies at the same time
