Features and differences of TU8000 TVs

In 2020, Samsung’s 8 Series TVs called Crystal UHD until 2020, such TVs were called the Premium Series. What is immediately noticed in the technical specifications. The screens in TU8000 TVs began to be installed with a frame rate of 60 per second. On 2019 TVs, the screen matrix was better than 120 frames per second. Edge backlit screen. Also, the number of HDMI ports in TU8000 TVs is reduced, there will be only 3 of them.

The rest of the changes are not significant, the processor received the new name Crystal Processor 4K. But given the number of HDMI ports and support for a frame rate of 60 per second, it seems that this is a processor that was installed in the 6th series of TVs in previous years. The remaining parameters remained the same as in the TVs of previous years.

In 2020, the gradation of TVs by series was almost completely stopped, the TU8000 TV can by no means be called the TV of the 8 series, at least in North America.
