UHD CURVED TVS
The Curved UHD TV is obviously one of the highlights of the event, as we pretty much saw outside the hallway. It goes to show that even after the fumble done by film director Michael Bay during CES 2014, Samsung’s willing to forgive and forget and leave that little incident to its annals of history.
As a little bit of history: before the company embarked into the world of the smartphone and tablets, the television division was one of the company’s chief sources of overall income. Years later and the company is already making advancements in home entertainment technology and even bringing 4K (another way of addressing the term UHD) displays to the home.
On stage, Andrew showed off one of Samsung’s new U9000 Series Curved UHD TV. Premiering back at the beginning of the year during CES 2014, these new UHD TVs, of course, come in all sorts of sizes. The one we saw on stage measured in at 78-inch. Further, Andrew announced that Samsung will make available three different sizes for the Southeast Asian region: 78-inch, 65-inch and 55-inch.
It was at this point, we actually wondered if Samsung would’ve made a curved UHD TV bigger than 78-inch. The answer was a resounding yes, as we soon saw the monstrous 105-inch Curved UHD TV inside the hallway at our exhibition. Something to note: while this may be the biggest curved UHD TV that Samsung has constructed, it is not the biggest curved UHD TV in the world to have been constructed. That title, interestingly enough, belongs to another company for now.
