HDR10+ Support on Samsung KS8000 (2016 models)

[ Edited ]

According to this Samsung offical press release (source: https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-and-amazon-video-deliver-next-generation-hdr-video-experienc...), I would like to know when Samsung is expecting to push the HDR10+ firmware update for the 2016 television models?

Unfortunately we cannot speculate on the release of future updates. Should this information become available it will be publicly announced.

Well since you cannot confirm when the HDR10+ firmware will be publicly announced, can you at least assure your clients who purchased the 2016 models are getting this upgrade in the near future?

 

As noted earlier, this HDR10+ firmware was an official PR announcement on the Samsung website for a late-2017 release however we have yet to see any progress towards achieving this promise.

This would really be nice if you could ask someone and clarify this situation..

 

If you expect others to embrace new hdr format atleast you could embrace it yourself in your products.

same question… WILL there be an update to 2016 models???? wouldn't be the first time a promised feature doesn't reach the clients. I bought myself a 65KS9590.

Can you please clarify if a firmware update will indeed be released at some point for 2016 models?  I have a KS9800 series.

The HDR 10+ firmware is already out on Samsung Korea site, 1209.0.

 

Just download it from them.

I have it installed on my KS-8000

I personally have not updated to this firmware (currently on 1207). Apparently, this still does not have HDR10+ (nor does it have the HDR setting for the gaming setting)

 

 

FW 1209 - (should work for US Samsung sets according to anecdotal evidences from other various forums)
