Samsung UN55JU6500 55" 4K TV
Want the best 55" picture available? Go Ultra HD.
Samsung's 55" UN55JU6500 is sized and priced to be a sensible entry to the super-detailed picture that 4K TVs are known for. And it's not just that the 4K screen has four times the pixels of HD. This set also features advanced video processing and backlighting to ensure outstanding color and contrast. TV makers have basically stopped trying to improve 1080p TVs and are throwing all of their efforts into making sure that their 4K models offer the most lifelike picture and the latest Smart TV conveniences.
Samsung gives you the most 4K viewing options
Right now, the best option for watching 4K content is web streaming. The UN55JU6500 includes “HEVC” decoding, so it can display the streamed 4K movies and TV series available from Netflix® and Amazon Instant Video with no additional gear needed. All of the set's HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2 copy protection, which means you'll be able to enjoy 4K sources like Ultra HD Blu-ray movies when they arrive in late 2015.
Samsung's UHD Video Pack media player.
Another way to watch 4K material is with Samsung's UHD Video Pack (sold separately). Only a little bigger than a smartphone, this 1-terabyte hard drive comes pre-loaded with several full-length movies and nature documentaries, all in spectacular full 4K resolution. Simply connect it to the TV using the supplied USB cable and start enjoying the best picture you've ever seen.
While true 4K content will continue to be scarce for a while, that won't keep you from enjoying a remarkable picture. Samsung made 4K upconversion a top priority as they developed the video processing circuitry for the UN55JU6500. Their UHD Upscaling automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen's 4K resolution. All of your current video sources — Blu-ray player, cable or satellite TV box, game console — will look better than ever.
A Smart TV that's smarter than most
Samsung's redesigned Smart Hub offers easy navigation and quick access from a single screen.
This TV's brain is a Quad-Core processor that lets you browse the web without having to interrupt what you're watching. Besides surfing the web you can do things like multitask or use one app while downloading another. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can do a quick web search while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online. Samsung's on-board selection of streaming video and music apps is second to none.
The AllShare™ Play feature lets you wirelessly access and stream content from any compatible device. If you own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Tab, you can share movies, photos, and music via the UN55JU6500. Your Wi-Fi® network lets you do things like "toss" photos from your phone or tablet to the screen with the swipe of a finger. Or push streaming video like Netflix movies from device to screen.
Sending content from your phone to your TV is cool, and going TV-to-phone can be even cooler. Just download Samsung's Smart View app and use the TV View feature to mirror whatever's on the UN55JU6500's screen on your Galaxy phone or Tab. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind.
