Super Smart platform
The J5500 Samsung TV features an all-new Smart Hub which marks a massive step forward for the connected home. It is thanks to this platform that Samsung can offer you access to the best UHD content from Netflix and Amazon, with more providers coming soon. Browse content easily, searching for your favourite programmes and movies while you are still watching TV - and enjoy games too with a huge variety for all the family to play. Better still, the Smart system even has the ability to provide console-free gameplay direct through the TV itself. In addition to this, Brief on TV is another great new service which wakes the TV up when your alarm goes off so it shows useful information such as the time, the weather and your daily schedule*.
Easy convergence means that it’s compatible with all the major mobile technology platforms, needing only a one-step auto connect via Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi Direct. This grants access to sharing apps, content and video straight from your mobile to the screen. And what’s more with Smart view 2.0, you can even watch your mobile media on your TV.
The Samsung TV displays a picture that is crisp, clear and breaktakingly lifelike. Displayed in a 1080p, Full HD picture resolution, the J5500 creates an immersive and enjoyable TV experience which can be appreciated by all the family.
Quad Core processor
With its powerful Quad Core processor, performance is significantly boosted to provide quick access to Smart features. Enjoy seamless entertainment as you use and flip between apps, online services and live television with ease.
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either. The Samsung HW-J550 (black) or HW-J551 (silver) soundbar is the perfect partner for this Samsung TV which can be simply fitted to the wall or position in front of the screen. Click to see the Samsung HW-J550.
If you want to connect your television to a Blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you'll need a HDMI cable.
