HDGURU keeps reporting the 85" HU8550 as being backlit rather than edge-lit. I'd assumed this was wrong but has there been any definitive proof that it is/isn't backlit?

Says they're being shown at IFA beginning of next month, so I would assume they'll be out mid-late september. Keep in mind there's been no official announcement that these are slated for the US yet.
