Samsung announces its second 4K Blu-ray player --- M9500

In a Wednesday, December 28, announcement, South Korean electronics giant Samsung said that it will debut its second 4K Blu-ray player – called the M9500 – at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to be held in Las Vegas in January.

The M9500 will be Samsung’s new Ultra High-Definition (UHD) Blu-ray player which will boast a number of noteworthy enhancements over the company’s UDB-K8500 device launched in 2015.

Some of the most notable features coming to Samsung’s new M9500 4K Blu-ray player include Bluetooth streaming, as well as tighter integration with Samsung’s other Smart Remote-compatible devices.

Moreover, the M9500 4K Blu-ray player will also boast the addition of a Private Cinema Mode which – similar to LG Blu-ray players and the Roku – will facilitate the streaming of audio to Bluetooth headphones. The new player will also be capable of automatically flagging HDR content that the users’ (Samsung) 4K TV switches automatically.

Furthermore, Samsung has also revealed that the M9500 4K Blu-ray player will come with improved mobile integration, giving users the ability to "enjoy their favorite Blu-ray titles on their mobile device."
