Brightness of Mitsubishi 82" DLP vs Samsung 85" 4K LED

Hi folks! Been a long time since I've posted here as I've been dealing with the lackluster brightness on my 82" Mitsu DLP for about 4 years now. I'm considering getting a Samsung 85" 4K LED tv (UN85JU7100FXZA) and am wondering what the Lambert output on one of these sammy would be as compared to the DLP I currently have. If my memory serves me right a well calibrated MIstu DLP output around 75 lamberts.

Anyone happen to know what the Sammy might be putting out?
Should I expect a significant increase in brightness?

While I don't own a 82" Mits DLP (I have a 73") I do know they don't get as bright as the smaller models since they use the same lamp. My 73" maxes at about 46 ft-L on a brand new lamp so the 75 ft-L would be absolutely ridiculous in feasibility and brightness. Max light output depends though on the environment and I always watch in a reasonably controllable environment (black out curtains etc) and these displays are usually set between 30 - 35 ft-L (I always set my displays to 35 ft-L). Though you will never know without a colorimeter or some other measurement device.
