This week Samsung announced a new Series 8 LCD HDTV line. Series 8 TVs feature Samsung’s take on functional art with an attractive design. The TVs in the series are only 1.9-inch wide at the thickest point. All of the models can support up to full 1080p resolution and use 120Hz refresh rates.

The series includes the 850 and 860 models and both models will come in either 46-inch or 52-inch screen sizes. Contrast ratio for all models is 50000:1 dynamic and both feature integrated downward firing speakers with a sub and SRS TruSurround XT.

Connectivity options include four HDMI-CEC ports, dual component inputs, S-Video, PC input, headphone jack, and an Ethernet connection. The difference between the 850 and 860 models appears to be only the addition of a second USB port to the 860. The 850 model will retail for $2699.99 for the 46-inch and $3399.99 for the 52-inch. The 860 models will sell for $2799.99 for the 46-inch and the 52-inch will go for $3499.99. All models will be available in September.
