Not to be outdone by each other, cross-town arch rivals, LG and Samsung have announced today to showcase a 105-inch Curved UHD TV at the next month’s CES 2014.
Interestingly, not only the screen size is the same, both competitors have decided to adopt a 21:9 aspect ratio for this particular TV set and a resolution support of 5120×2160 pixels.
LG says they had introduce a new technology to realise the TV’s (model number 105UB9) curvature and prevent colour leakage. The new TV from LG refined its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent colour leakage that ensures a superior viewing experience from virtually any angle.
On the other hand, Samsung’s offering does not have a model number yet but it claims the title of being the “most curved” 105-inch Curved UHD TV.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed if their TV uses an OLED or an LCD panel but confirms to have a proprietary picture quality algorithm for improved colour quality and depth. The TV also features Quadmatic Picture Engine that outputs near 4K-level picture quality irrespective of the source resolution of the image.
We’ll be live from the show floor next month, so be rest assured to witness some eye-popping images of both the television sets.
