Samsung 50-inch plasma

Samsung recently announced some specs of what looks like the 8-series plasma HDTV first shown at CES. The 50-inch 850 PAVV is just 1.14 inches (29mm) thick and houses the tuner. Samsung says it's also 40 percent more energy efficient and, at about 57lbs, 20 percent lighter than the corresponding previous-generation model.

The TV has 1080p resolution and has DLNA support. Along with the necessary software and USB 2.0 ports, this allows users to watch DivX videos, view photos or play MP3 audio files from external drives or flash memory sticks.

These features are expected to carry over to a 58-inch plasma model Samsung is also readying, though no specifics other than that it is 50 percent slimmer than the previous-generation TV and weighs about 80lbs.

Pricing or a release date for either model is likewise unknown. Samsung does not currently offer any 8-series plasma HDTVs in North America, and it is unknown if these set will be the first to come to the market. [via Akihabara]
