In the second half of 2020, Samsung announced the start of production of curved TVs 2020-2021. The first model with curved screen is TU8300. If we talk about the previous models then TU8300, it is a reincarnation of the model RU7300 2019 or model NU7300 2018. Just in 2020, we decided to move this model to the eighth series.

The Samsung TU8300 TV series.

Despite the fact that in 2020 the TV screen became known as Crystal UHD, this is just a new name, the production technology itself has not changed, and screens are produced on the same line, at least since 2018. LED screen, the simplest production technology. Maximum supportable frame rate, 60 frames per second. Edge backlighting, dimming technology only for large areas.

TU8300 processors

Processors TU8300, the name has adapted to the name of the line of TVs and now it is, the processor Crystal UHD. But it’s a low-power processor, for nothing Samsung discloses the real technical parameters of the processor.

TU8300 comparison with previous models.

What’s changed in TU8300, the software has been improved. When the Samsung TU8300 first appeared on the official Samsung website, AirPlay 2 support was added, but with a note that AirPlay2 may not be available at the time of purchase. A few days later the mention of AirPlay2 was removed from the Samsung websites, at least in the USA. This suggests that the TU8300 will most likely never receive AirPlay2 support.
Gaming mode now with ALLM (Automatically Detects Game Console Connection) support. Added Ambient Mode. Supports home office work.
