Samsung debuts "Tulip" LCD TVs, plasmas in Europe

Samsung Tulip LCDs

Samsung began its stay at Germany's CeBIT expo by launching a suite of new LCD and plasma sets first for Europeans. Nicknamed the Tulip line based on their rounded shape, the new LCDs all appear to enhance image quality even compared to the upcoming 53 series for the US: in the M87 range, the 37-inch model will all feature a brighter 8,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio versus the 7,000:1 for the US, while the larger 40-, 46-, and 52-inch sets will nearly double the figure to 15,000:1.

These models will be 1080p-capable and will have a 9-in-1 card reader as well as three HDMI inputs, with prices ranging between 1,200 ($2,321) and 2,500 ($4,836) when they reach Britain in April.

Accommodating smaller sizes is the R87 series. Though limited to 720p, the sets share almost all of the same features as the larger TVs. 32-, 37-, and 40-inch versions will be ready later this year with 8,000:1 contrast; the smaller 23- and 26-inch displays will have 4,000:1 and 5,000:1 ratios due to their smaller dimensions. Prices are currently unavailable.

Samsung is completing the introductions with a duo of sets for those who prefer plasma. The Q97 will come in 46-inch and 50-inch versions and take advantage of their vivid nature to deliver 15,000:1 contrast without dynamic adjustments. Precise launch details for the Q97 are also unavailable.
