Samsung Releases Details Of 2012 Smart TVs

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 proved to be a geek's paradise with numerous consumer electronics on display - and one gadget in particular that has people talking is Samsung's much-awaited Smart 2012 TVs.

It was only two months ago that Las Vegas played host to the Consumer Electronics Show, where Samsung first announced the launch of its new range of 2012 TVs with limited information. Today however is a different story - with Samsung officially releasing the pricing on the TVs.

What really set the smart bar high was its mind-blowing face recognition, gesture sensitive and voice controlled ES8000 LED TV. Beauty and brains? Smart move, Samsung.

Joe Stinziano, senior VP of Home Entertainment at Samsung Electronics America commented on the release: “Our goal with this year’s models was to truly redefine what a TV can be while providing unprecedented choice to the consumer.

“We have delivered the incredible picture quality and beautiful design that consumers have come to expect from Samsung, as well as seamless connectivity, several new ways to control the TV and exclusive services.”

Already on people's US wishlists, sadly the UK will have to wait a tad longer for this miraculous device. Expected to be launched in the US sometime this month, the UK is expected to witness its arrival nearer Easter - giving us a marginal amount of time to save up for the estimated £2,800 price tag. However, for those looking to part with a little less, the ES7500 will cost approximately £2,500 for the 60 inch model - with the more affordable 55in, 50in and 46in on offer also.
