Samsung offers a 110-inch Ultra HDTV for $150,000
Samsung Korea announced today the launch of its first 2014 model television. It’s a 110-inch UHDTV with 4 times the resolution of high definition televisions, according to a Samsung Korea website and an Associated Press report. This giant TV is the largest ever offered and will be sold first in South Korea for 160 million won ($152,000). No US price has been set. Samsung is expected make the TV’s US debut next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This flat screen is styled like Samsung’s 85-inch UN85S9 with a frame around the screen that houses speakers and part of the TVs electronics. Samsung claims it has already received 10 orders from the Middle East.
Ultra High Definition Televisions offer screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. US UHDTV sales are expected to grow rapidly, from just 60,000 in 2013 to 800,000 in 2014 and 4.5 million in 2015, according to the market research firm NPD. While Samsung offered only 3 Ultra HDTV models in 2013, we expect Samsung and other name-brand TV makers (i.e. LG, Sony, Toshiba etc.) will significantly expand their respective UHDTV lines in 2014 and will be rolling them out at the CES.
HD Guru and staff will be in Las Vegas covering the the CES beginning Monday January 6, 2014.
