Hi @Difference, Having checked out the specifications (at least the ones given) seem identical. Therefore think the difference is in the design though both adhere to the 360 model and they have for instance Dynamic Crystal Control, Elite HDR and UHD Dimming. Cannot see a great deal of reviews on 8050 (videos I found were double dutch (literally and unfortunately don't know much of that language) Do know the colour of the frame of 8050/70 is Carbon Silver compared to the Eclipse silver of NU8000. It is the 8500 which is the curved version in the series. perhaps someone can give you a bit more specific information.
