Background and Identification
Samsung spans numerous sectors of the consumer market, manufacturing electronics and home appliances, selling everything from a smartphone to a vacuum cleaner. Samsung originated as a company in 1938 when it was founded by Lee Byung-chul in South Korea. The company’s origins are vastly different from its activities today. Samsung started out as a small company with just forty employees that sold groceries, dried fish, and noodles. Around 1954, Samsung began expanding, dabbling in areas like insurance and retail. It wasn’t until the late 1960s that Samsung got involved in the electronics industry.
Among the home electronics sold by Samsung is the 2016 UN55KS9000F 55-inch 4K SUHD TV. This home TV connects to Wi-Fi to provide streaming services. The TV is optimized to deliver a high-resolution, colored display that aims to provide “true-to-life” quality. As of summer 2020, this device sells for just under $2,000.
The Samsung UN55KS9000F 55-inch 4K SUHD TV has a 55-inch thin, slightly curved flatscreen. The screen is attached to a thin base, allowing the TV to rest on a TV stand or entertainment center.
