It seems like an updated variant of the 85JU7100. That display was backlit with 4 zones. Seems like a very modest upgrade on the 2015 model coming late in 2016 with 2015 software.

I have a 78" and sit approximately 15' away. If you can afford go big... 85 or higher. I had a 92" it was the right size but the picture couldn't match the Sammy.
