LAS VEGAS: KOREAN HARDWARE FIRM LG has unveiled the "world's first" 105in curved Ultra HD 4K TV, expanding on the 77in model it outed last year.
LG, which clearly couldn't wait until its CES press conference on Monday, unveiled the gigantic device on Sunday, along with four other Ultra HD TV sets.
The firm is most pleased about the 105in model, which it claims is a "world's first" thanks to its curvature and 4K resolution. LG is boasting that the TV with 5120x2160 resolution is in fact "5K", and it claims that the viewing experience is "unmatched". We'll be the judge of that when we hit the CES show floor on Tuesday.
The massive television also boasts a 21:9 aspect ratio and a forward-facing 7.2 multi-channel sound system called Ultra Surround.
For those who don't have space for a 105in TV, LG unveiled some smaller alternatives, outing 65in, 79in, 84in and 98in 4K televisions, although you'll likely still need to have money to burn.
All four of the smaller TVs have a 3840x2160 resolution IPS display, and LG boasts that the proprietary chip powering the sets will enhance the overall image quality. There's another nifty feature onboard that upscales SD, HD or Full HD content and renders it in near Ultra HD quality, thanks to LG's Tru-Ultra HD Engine Pro.
LG SVP and head of the TV Division In-kyu Lee said, "Our newest Ultra HD TV offerings are going to turn a lot of heads at this year's CES. Image quality is simply outstanding, and consumers are recognising LG as a trend setter in Ultra HD technology and a leader in moving the 4K medium forward."
Pricing and availability details for LG's new TV lineup are still to be announced, but we assume that they are not going to be cheap.
We'll be at LG's Las Vegas press conference on Monday at 4pm GMT, so check back then for all the latest from the firm. µ
