Samsung Announces 105-inch Curved UHD TV for CES

With more TVs than you could shake a stick at, Samsung's CES 2013 booth was pretty impressive, and it looks like the company's booth at CES 2014 will be equally impressive. The South Korean company this week announced that it would be bringing a 105-inch curved UHD TV to CES in two weeks' time. The company is claiming that this TV is the 'world's most curved' 105-inch TV, no doubt a subtle dig at LG, which announced its own 105-inch curved TV earlier this week.

 

"We are happy to unveil the 105-inch Curved UHD TV, the culmination of Samsung's advancements, following the world's first Curved UHD TV at IFA 2013," said HS Kim, executive vice president of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. "You will experience a true curved TV optimized for consumer viewing environments at CES 2014."

Similar to LG's 105-inch 21:9 TV, Samsung's offering also packs a 21:9 aspect ratio. The display itself boasts 11 million pixels for a screen resolution of 5120 x 2160.

    Images are to be projected on a plane, not on a curve. On a real world scenario you'll get the world's biggest barrel distortion :-)

    Why do we suddenly need curved things? Because we can make them? This is getting ridiculous.

    curved because it creates a more realistic view, when looking at things in real life you have a field of view surrounding you. Not all crammed into a flat space.

    @oxxfatelostxxo: This is true, but what happens when you look at something that is not ment to be curved, at a curved TV? When they plan to make curved monitor software (Games, Movies), then we will see....

    Some of you clearly don't seem to realize that ever time you've been to a movie theatre in the last couple decades, you were watching a curved display...

    Nope, I've never even noticed the screens at movie theaters were curved. So since I never noticed it, then how does that me want to buy a curved screen for my home?
