"The player will automatically adjust TV video and audio settings based on source content, in order to provide the most optimal viewing experience possible with support for HDR video..."

Wondering if this will mean compensation for the lack of sufficient lumens...particularly in the case for projectors.

Let's hope they spend more than $2 on the bundled remote this cycle. The K8500's remote is atrocious.

please let this be true. HDR10 is ok, but even streaming DV looks better IMO from a contrast standpoint. I can only image DV on physical media.

I guess the only downside is I already have 20+ HDR10 blu rays =/

There's zero mention of Dolby Vision in the press release so I don't know where that came from. That doesn't mean the player will or won't support it, but right now there is no hint or clue to speculate upon because it was not mentioned anywhere. It certainly one of the questions I will ask when at CES.

Hopefully this time, Samsung let us turn off the noise reduction on the chroma channels. They didn't on their first UHD BD player (not sure if it affected UHD BD or just standard BD though).

You beat me to it. I hate the remote and the very cheap build of the player itself. If the price is too high the Oppo will still be the one to get.
I had a feeling this was coming since the current model is now being blown out at Costco.

You guys use the remotes that came with your devices or in this particular case the Samsung player? I use my harmony or my Tablet for such.

Wonder how the player will optimize video settings of the TVs, could be similar to BD Wise... still they gotta come up with some kinda new gimmick after Panasonic and Oppo are blowing the K8500's picture quality out of the water. Hope there's an option for Native Resolution or option or change it on the fly.

Patience is a virtue, I mean visual bliss!!

I don't want new gimmicks, instead I just want a firmware fixes for the K8500 chroma bugs and forced noise reduction on the Cb and Cr channels.
Native resolution would be good too. No need for a completely new model for all these to be delivered.

Many thanks. Were you not allowed to use the photo you describe? The one in the article very clearly shows the lack of a front panel display!

And I wholeheartedly agree that displays are good. I hate the recent downgrade to "onscreen overlay only" information. I want to see "time remaining" of a movie, on the front panel, at a glance.

Knowing samsung though, they'd rather sell you a brand spankin new UHD player than fix the one you already got for free.

Samsung does that with their model codes sometimes. 2008-2013 was A-F respectively but then they skipped G and went to H for 2014 and then skipped I in favor of J for 2015. Maybe they skipped L because they used that in their old plasma models? If they follow history they will go M, N, P, R, S, T which were 2002-2007 models respectively.

Hard to believe this will serve any purpose or work in any way with anything besides a Samsung TV.

I'm told it will run Tizen, so that's one feature I'm looking forward to. I've never really cared for the UI on any of the Blu-Ray players, with the exception of the Sonys.

Fugly, with a useless display. But if it works as good as my UBD K8500 I guess it will be alright.

I think they'll always deliberately skip "L" (and "G" when the codes reset) as long as a certain South Korean rival continues to make TVs that cut into their market share.
