Samsung was the first company to release an Ultra HD Blu-ray player and it is now following up with the second-generation M9500 player. It will offer new features such as a “private cinema mode”.

Like the original UBD-K8500, the new M9500 player has a curved design. This could signal that Samsung intends to make its 2017 TVs curved, too.
Like all UHD Blu-ray players, Samsung M9500 conform to the UHD Blu-ray specification, meaning support for Ultra HD resolution, HDR (High Dynamic Range), a wider color gamut, and new audio formats such as Atmos and DTS-X.
- “In addition, Samsung’s new UHD Blu-ray player automatically sets the TV screen and audio to the optimal level by analyzing the content source being played at the time, such as HDR, Atmos or DTS-X. This means consumers can now seamlessly enjoy the content they want without changing their TV or audio settings,” says Samsung.
Furthermore, the player has features such as bluetooth audio streaming, Samsung Smart Remote integration, and a “private cinema mode” that allows you to wirelessly transfer audio to bluetooth headphones.
Lastly, Samsung highlights “mobile integration” that allows you to watch Blu-ray movies on your mobile device.
The M9500 player will be exhibited at CES 2017 next week. Samsung did not share any release or pricing details.
