Cape Town – Samsung's 216cm Ultra High Definition UHD 85S9 television, which was launched last month, is now available in South Africa.

DionWired told News24 that they already sold one of the televisions.

Andrew Jackson, director of DionWired, said people are definitely showing interest in the television and there have been enquiries from customers.

The television offers a viewing experience with four times the resolution available on existing Full HD displays.

The unique design creates the impression that the TV is floating within its frame. A single cable is discreetly wired into the base, while a separate 1-connect box combines all other inputs into a central location, eliminating clutter.
The TVs audio experience also matches its screen excellence with 120W array speakers built seamlessly into the frame, providing six times the sound of conventional TVs.

DionWired and Samsung are offering a special introductory price of R385 000.

This includes a five year exclusive warranty, free delivery and home installation as well as four years of free hardware and software upgrades with the bundled Samsung Smart Evolution Kit.
