Samsung to Reveal World's Largest Ultra HD TV at CES 2013

Korean conglomerate Samsung is expected to announce an 85-inch Ultra HD LED TV at CES in January, 2013.

According to Samsung, its latest television will be "the world's largest commercialised UHD LED TV". It'll offer over eight million pixels and "lifelike" picture to viewers.

Samsung joins the likes of Sony and Toshiba in making its foray into the next generation of high-definition viewing. Ultra HD (formerly known as 4K) TVs deliver resolutions of 8MP or 3840 x 2160 pixels, which is four times higher than 1080p televisions that have 1929 x 1080 pixels.

The firm's "world's largest" moniker may be overtaken sooner rather than later, though. LG's 84-inch 4K-supported TV released just two months ago, while there's also 'non-commercialised' screens such as Panasonic's 152-inch Ultra HD plasma.

Either way, 8K television is in the works, with accompanying screens offering 32 megapixels or 7,680 x 4,320 pixels. As for the price of Samsung's 85-inch Ultra HD LED TV, details have yet to be unveiled but expect it to be near LG's $19,000 TV.

  • In percentage, it doesent look like like much. IN fact it looks pathertic.
    24 inch has full HD, a table has full HD (10 inch), and 85 inches, so times bigger.

    So, if we get 1900x8 1080x8 we get 15200x8640. That would be news, and its not even a better image quality considered the size.
  • Why even bother with 4k when 8k is being made?
