SYDNEY, Australia – August 15, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Australia, today announced the launch of its biggest TV to-date – the Series 9 75inch Slim LED* Smart TV. The introduction of the new Smart TV aims to meet the rising market demand for larger screen sizes and marks Samsung's continued commitment to delivering an outstanding TV experience.
"Samsung understands that when purchasing a new smart TV consumers want amazing picture quality, connectivity and content, along with a sophisticated design," said Phillip Newton, Director – AV, Samsung Electronics Australia. "Samsung's Series 9 Smart TV is crafted with the enthusiast in mind, and offers Samsung's most immersive large screen entertainment experience ever," he added.
Designed with Stunning Rose-Gold
Samsung's Series 9 is one of the most unique and attractive smart TVs on the market, encased in a stunning rose-gold finish and a slim-line body, the timeless design concept features a super-slim 7.9 millimetre curved bezel. The effect cleanly complements the TV's square stand. In addition, the TV's built-in camera is hidden within the top of the bezel, maintaining the TV's clean lines when not in use.
Smart Signature Services
The latest unit includes the complete suite of Samsung's Smart TV features – including Smart Interaction** and Smart Content^.

Say 'Hi TV' to turn on Voice Control, 'Web Browser' to open up a webpage and then browse and select search results or increase the volume with grabbing or swiping hand gestures, all from the comfort of the couch**.
