What do Samsung TV model number means and why they are long?

Last Update Date : 2018-05-20

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 ASIA and Middle East.

Using model UA88KS9800KXZN as an example we can see that:

U = LED

= Produced for Asia and Middle East

88 = Screen size (in inches)

KS = Manufactured in 2016

9800 = 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.

K = Features or design

XZN = Manufacturing information

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