Curved UHD

The Samsung UHD Curved TV is more than a beautiful sculptural shape. It surrounds you to deliver an image with a realistic presence that flat screens just can’t match. The curve creates a more natural viewing experience from every angle, immersing you in the action wherever you sit and ensuring everyone has the best seat in the house.

Change the way you watch TV forever

A breakthrough in TV viewing – the Samsung Curved UHD HU8500 is subtly shaped to deliver UHD viewing at it’s very best. Experience a greater sense of depth, wider viewing angles, clearer images with pure and more accurate colour than you’ve never seen before. Surround your senses with the Samsung Curved UHD TV today.


Lose yourself completely in the depth of the drama as the Samsung Curved screen draws you in and surrounds you completely, delighting every sense. By analysing different areas of the image, Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer technology applies differing levels of contrast enhancements to each area to deliver a superior sense of depth never seen before – making you feel like you’re part of the drama.


Every seat is the perfect seat when you’re watching your favourite shows or content on the Samsung Curved UHD screen. Designed with a 4.2m radius curvature optimized for the average viewing distance¹ of most living rooms, it also offers a wider field of view by shortening the distance between you and the screen's corners and hence creating more natural viewing angles.


Renowned for award winning picture quality the Curved UHD TV does not disappoint, and provides the highest levels of contrast and minimal external light reflection compared to flat screens. Combine this with Samsung’s Panel, Processor and Backlighting technologies and the optimal Curved form factor, and the result is staggering and needs to be seen to be believed – the clearest image with most accurate and natural colour you’ll ever experience.
