Samsung is expanding the lineup to include 16 models compared to previously offered 10 models in the UHD lineup. With the 2018 UHD TV lineup, Samsung is also bringing improved color reproduction and support for superior high dynamic range.

The UHD TVs also come with One Remote Control, Smart Hub and Smart Convergence for easy pairing with your smartphone. One of the new features being introduced this year is called 2-way Bluetooth support which allows you stream the audio from TV on your smartphone or vice-versa.
