    Product Overview

    Looking for a stylish TV with clever tech that can take centre stage in your living room? This 55-inch Samsung model will fit the bill perfectly. The 4K Ultra HD screen and HDR10+ work together to bring out all those little details of everything you watch, with colours that look just like the real thing. You’ve got fantastic audio as well, with Adaptive Sound tweaking the settings so whatever’s on is always at its best. It comes with the usual smart apps when it’s linked up to your WiFi, and if you’re looking for that little something extra, you can even control this model with effortless voice control – perfect for lazy weekends on the sofa.

    We want you to fully enjoy your new TV, so please be careful when unpacking it – pull it out of the box using the edges so that you don’t damage the screen. If you need to return your TV for any reason, we just ask that you don’t pack the plug in front of the screen as it could damage the TV in transit.

    Features we love

    See blockbusters on a masterpiece

    This TV has an AirSlim design that’ll look amazing in your front room. It’s really thin from the side, and the smooth, clean back gives it a sleek finish. So, whether you mount it on the wall or show it off on a unit, it’ll look stunning.

    Always looks its best

    As the brain of the TV, this Crystal 4K processor makes sure the action always looks amazing. From tweaking the colours to bringing out contrasts, it gets everything in order so HDR tech can do its thing. All that even applies to older movies and shows too thanks to 4K upscaling. Whether you’re watching a high-paced action film, or your other half has picked a romcom, they’ll be filled with detail that’ll really bring it to life.

    Fill your screen with colour

    Samsung’s Dynamic Crystal Colour technology brings out a stunning variety of colours in every single frame. It unlocks over a billion lifelike hues and tones, offering you an experience filled with more vibrancy and detail. Even subtle colours are illuminated, as whites look brighter and blacks look deeper. So, everything you watch, from your favourite action movies to epic nature documentaries, will look truly spectacular.

    Feel like you are really there

    Object Tracking Sound LITE technology makes it feel like the actions playing out all around you. It analyses exactly what’s making a noise on the screen and then projects the audio so it seems like it’s coming from that direction in your room. This way, you’ll get wrapped up in every moment, just like you would at the cinema.

    A smarter way to watch TV

    This smart TV comes with Samsung’s Tizen operating system built-in, taking the hassle out of finding something to watch. It’s got an easy-to-use menu that makes it really simple to search for and download tons of streaming apps, catch-up services and more. So, you’ll never be stuck flicking through channels – just pop on what you want, whenever you want.
