Samsung SMART TV

A beautifully designed Smart TV, powered by our best technology

The Samsung F8500 Plasma TV allows you to experience the deepest blacks and the brightest whites we have ever produced*. Thanks to Samsung's New Cell technology, this plasma TV delivers similar brightness levels as regular LED TVs and blacks so deep that only plasma technology can produce. The F8500's unique design perfectly blends beautiful looks with the functionality of a powerful TV. It comes with Samsung's Smart Evolution to help you keep your TV up to date, and the advanced Smart Interaction even lets you control your TV with your voice or hand gestures. The dark titan metal colour and ultra-slim frame highlight the futuristic design. The F8500 is more than a TV; it's a work of art.

Brightness in the room
is no longer an issue

Samsung's New Cell panel structure produces extremely dark images that are four times more detailed than conventional plasma technology. This new Super Contrast Panel will increase the brightness level of any image by up to 250%* – under any lighting condition. Blacks will appear richer and deeper. Fast-moving objects will appear fluid and smooth as they zoom across the TV screen setting a new standard in Plasma picture quality.
