However, American models of the Samsung KS9500 are different as they are edge-lit. In fact, the American versions are more like the Curved variants of the Samsung KS9000 and are available in 55-inch and 65-inch. Only Samsung can explain the necessity for the confusion. Here we focus on the European models which are more likely more similar to models that will sell in Nigeria and by extension Africa.

Design and Display
Just like the KS9800 SUHD TV, the Samsung KS9500 parades a curved design which Samsung says will make any seat in the home the best to enjoy immersive viewing from. It has very thing bezels which cause pictures to almost appear to be suspended in the air.
The Samsung KS9500 SUHD TV rocks a metallic body boosting its aesthetic in the home. It boasts Quantum Dot technology and 4K resolution for spectacular, life-like pictures.
One great feature of the KS9800 which appears in the European models of the Samsung KS9500 is the awesome multi-zone full-array backlighting.
However, this feature is missing in the American models, which offer edge-lit LED panels instead. Samsung KS9500 SUHD comes in 65-inch and 78-inch sizes.
The Samsung KS9500 SUHD TV also benefits from the redesign of the Samsung Smart TV system, as is the case with the more-expensive KS9800. The Tizen OS-powered set automatically syncs with home theatre equipment.
The Smart Remote that comes with it lets you control cable/satellite boxes and game consoles, amongst others. All these other devices are automatically recognised as soon as plugged in, according to Samsung. The TV features a full web browser to allow you surf the web, use social media and do online shopping.
