What do Samsung TV model numbers actually mean? Why are they so long?

Samsung TV model numbers use codes to describe the TVs. Once familiar with the codes you can learn a lot about a particular TV just from glancing at its model code.

 

Note that the below model codes refer to models sold in the UK. Please refer to your Samsung local website for information on model codes sold outside the UK.

 

Using model UE55F8000AFXZ as an example we can see that:

U = LED

E = Produced for Europe

55 = Screen size (in inches)

F = Manufactured in 2013

8000 = Series. This will differ depending on the features for that individual model. You can find out the specifications for a particular model by entering the model code into the search area on the Samsung website.

A = Features or design

FXZ = Manufacturing information

 

If you have a UE55F8000BFXZ instead of the UE55F8000AFXZ used in the example the difference between the two models would be a design change, such as a different coloured bezel, but all the other specifications would be the same.

 

See the charts below to see what the other codes mean.
