That's the impression I'm under and what Samsung stated made the TV "future proof". The only things I'm not sure about is the updated processor (not sure if that's in the TV or the One Connect Box) and I'm not sure if the new remote will be included with the One Connect Box or if it will be an additional accessory. I waited for CES to see what Samsung was coming out with before I bought the current 55" F9000 and from what I read there was nothing earth shattering plus it seemed the price for the 2014 models wouldn't be released until they finally went on sale and I didn't want to wait another 3 months. I'm curious to see if they come out higher in price like they initially did and the 2013 models stay at the current price, then once the 2013 models inventory is depleted the price of the 2014's will be lowered. I'm more than happy with my purchase and have no regrets, it's an awesome TV! Bluray movies on it are unreal, the only thing I don't like is non HD channels as they look like garbage compared to HD channels but that is to be expected.
From everything I've read, the processor is in the one connect box. Plus, the faster processor is required for the new encryption scheme (h.265). Also, believe I've read where the new remote was part of this years evolution kit for the 2012 models. I think the new remote goes with the revamped smart hub.
