If you liked the look of Samsung’s living room-filling 105-inch curved screen HDTV set but were put off by its $120,000 asking price, there’s good news.
On Tuesday, LG launched its own equally curved, equally large and equally ultra-high definition TV, the LG 105UC9, and it will “only” cost $117,000.
Thanks to the sheer size of the screen it boasts 11 million pixels, so technically speaking it’s a 5K, not a 4K set (as it has five times the number of pixels found in a HD TV screen), something LG is very quick to point out.
It also comes with a specially designed sound system co-developed by premium audio brand Harman Kardon so the listening experience should be as immersive as the viewing — with an aspect ratio of 21:9.
“The vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 Curved Ultra HD TV was to bring the movie theater into the living room,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.
“Featuring a curved 5K CinemaScope screen and a 7.2 channel speaker system, the 105UC9 is LG’s most spectacular Ultra HD TV yet. This product pushes the envelope in home entertainment innovation and demonstrates what is possible when you bring today’s most advanced TV technologies together.”
