Following LG's recent announcement, Samsung has also detailed plans to bring its OLED display to Europe.
Samsung will release its 55-inch curved-screen OLED in several European markets. The display should be available now in Germany and will expand to the United Kingdom, France, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, and Belgium in the coming weeks. Suggested retail price is set at €7,999 (about $10,671), which is €1,000 less than LG's competing OLED model.
Like its U.S. counterpart, the KE55S9C features OLED technology (organic light-emitting diode) with self-emitting RGB sub-pixels and no backlight, resulting in superior black levels. The TV also comes complete with full 1080p resolution, 3D capabilities, Smart TV features, and support for Samsung's Evolution Kit.
Also new to this model, is the introduction of Samsung's Multi View mode. Using the company's 3D Active glasses, two individual users are now able to simultaneously view different HD content in 2D or 3D on the same display. Built-in speakers on the 3D glasses will provide the appropriate audio content to each user, creating a seamless experience.
Released earlier this month in the United States, the KN55S9C is currently available in America for a suggested retail price of $9,000.
