65 and 55-inch models begin shipping in August.

Samsung's F9000 is the company's more accessible UHD follow-up to the $40K S9, and now it is on its way to the US in two screen sizes. Pre-orders for the 65 and 55-inch models begin July 21st, and the models are expected to ship in August. While the prices for these sets reflect the tumbling trend for 4K sets , Samsung is pushing a feature set that includes their Quagmatic Picture Engine, Precision Black Local Dimming, Smart TV functionality, 70-watt sound, and an Ultra Slim Bezel.

From Samsung, "Following in the footsteps of the award-winning Samsung S9 UHD TV introduced earlier this year, the F9000 series offers four times the resolution of Full HD TV for a vivid, crystal-clear picture. The F9000 UHD TV utilizes Samsung's proprietary Quadmatic Picture Engine, a four-step process including signal analysis, noise minimization, UHD up-scaling and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD or Full HD content to UHD-level picture quality. Both the TV and its software can be upgraded to be compatible with future UHD standards with a separate Evolution Kit."

The F9000 series are also 3D sets and host Wi-Fi connectivity. The models even include a built-in camera to work with Samsung's Smart TV bundle of apps.

Suggested pricing for the two F9000 models starts at $5500 for the 55-inch and $7500 for the 65-inch.
