Samsung announced Tuesday that its highly-expensive 105-inch curved Ultra HD TV is set to debut and consumers should be willing to spend $120,000.
Samsung, the renowned electronics brand, is bringing its premium entertainment product to the stores after demonstrating it at the Consumer Electronic Show earlier this year. The 105-inch curved Ultra HD TV is setting its steep foot in the market with a hefty price tag of $120,000. The monstrous television set comes with the best specs found in any latest television along with a resolution that goes beyond the 4K standard.
The Samsung 105-inch UN105S9W is a truly premium product by the tech giant, not just for its over-the-top price range but for the exceptional features as well. Pushing the screen resolution above the 4K standard of 3,840 x 2,160, the new curved UHD TV boasts 5,120 x 2,160-pixel resolution. The number of pixels has been increased from 8 million to 11 million, offering better picture quality and clearer images. The HD pixel count of 1,920 x 1,080 is nowhere near. The wide screen gives it a 21:9 aspect ratio compared to the standard 16:9 aspect ratio found on all 1080p TVs and most 4K sets.
According to the product's description page, the Samsung UN105S9W model features the company's latest UHD up-scaling tech that will convert HD and SD streams to 4k, a significant feature for the slow adoption of 4K standard. It also features an Auto Depth Enhancer that automatically adjusts the contrast of the picture for better viewing and UHD Dimming system that widens the display's contrast ratio.
Each TV set is built to order and comes as a package deal with "Elite Service," which means a technician will come to your house, optimize the TV for your living room and explain all the features.
"Made for the premium entertainment lover, the 105-inch curved UHD TV features the most advanced technology and design, a massive movie-theater style UHD screen and a curve that creates the ultimate cinematic experience," Joe Stinziano, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement, PCMag reports.
The 105-inch curved UHD TV, which actually measures 104.6-inches diagonally, is available for pre-orders. In competition, chief rival LG has its 105-inch curved UHD TV lined up for $70,000. And if curved screens aren't your thing, then Vizio offers a 120-inch UHD TV and comparatively smaller 50-inch models for as little as $999.99.
