Samsung took the stage early this week to preview their second-generation Ultra HD Blu-Ray player; the M9500. The device will be officially announced next week at CES 2017.
The M9500 looks like any other Blu-Ray player, while still having some tricks under its sleeve. For example, there is “Ultra High Quality” (UHQ) audio software on board. It’ll also be able to automatically set TV and audio levels by optimizing the content that is currently playing. This is included for HDR video, as well as Atmos or DTS-X audio. There is also built-in Bluetooth for private audio streaming via headphones. Support for 360-degree photos or videos that are streamed from mobile devices is also on board.
Samsung is also touting a new feature, which would give “users the flexibility to enjoy their favorite Blu-Ray titles on their mobile device,” but they have not given any specifics on how that would work. The details will most likely be shared during CES next week, so we’ll update you when we get more information.
