HDR10+ Support 2017 MU8000

Do the 2017 MU8000 tv’s currently support HDR10 + or are we waiting for a firmware update? I ask because watching UHD titles on Amazon app I can’t really see any difference from HDR10. There isn’t any information on the tv other than The HDR indicator in the settings menu and it doesn’t say HDR10+ just HDR.  If I’m seeing HDR 10 + I have to say I’m not seeing a difference

The silence from Samsung on this speaks volumes about there customer service

The MU8000 has a 10 bit panel so it should be able to display HDR10+.  Whether or not Samsung helps out its loyal customer base with a firmware update to do this is another thing altogether.  I'm hoping (and legions others) that Samsung can and will do this.  Or at least be decent enough to let us know what it's plans are.

And how to interpret Samsung's claim that all UHD TVs from 2017 and newer have the option of HDR10 +?

Yes, how to  interpret that...... I recently read that HDR10+ was going to roll out to select 2018 TVs and thought "wait, the 2017 TVs had it so why would they have to roll it out to 2018 TVs?".  So apparently my 2017 MU8000 doesn't have HDR10+.   it seems like they have to update the 2017 TVs with HDR10+ or give one heck of a deal for a new Samsung TV that supports HDR10+ since they advertised the 2017 TVs had it.

Your 2017 MU8000 does have a 10 bit panel.  I'm hoping that a software update can include a better way for the MU series to interact with HDR sources,  better than it does now.    Samsung says it will provide a software update for it's 2008 tvs, so hopefully,  it can provide an update for it's 2017 Mu seiries, since it should have the same ability to use the software.

Korea 's UN82MU8000F model updates the firmware at the beginning of next month at the end of this month. I do not know about other models.

Korea's UN82MU8000F model will be updated at the end of this month or early next month. This is the official answer from Samsung Korea. I think the US model will be soon.

As far as I know the MU8000 has hdr1000, which is not,  hdr10+.   I'm pretty sure if there had been a update for the new hdr10+ it would have been widely reported.  Whoever told you that either doesn't know,  or is not being upfront.
