Samsung demonstrates first Ultra HD Blu-ray player

Samsung is a brand name that is mainly associated with smartphones and how can it be any other way when the company has hundreds of smartphones on the market as we speak? Yet Samsung makes many other devices that are not smartphones and the Korean company has just demonstrated one such gizmo.

The device does not have a name as of now but it is an interesting thing nevertheless – it is the first Samsung Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Demonstrated at IFA 2015 the player can provide up to four times the resolution of standard Blu-ray devices as well as 64 times higher color expression. But there’s more – the player can upscale content to “provide UHD resolution for any disc,” and is compatible with 4K streaming services. It also has support for high dynamic range (HDR) video. There’s 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi, a USB port in the back and the player can also connect to Samsung’s SmartThings hub.

No word on pricing or availability as of now.
