Last year, the big news on the block at CES was 4K, a new display standard all TV manufacturers were jumping on board, revealing expensive and odd looking televisions that cost the same as BMW or full degree in college.
The margins on these TVs are very thin, sell 100 of them in one area and you’ve made enough to be happy. The size of the TVs shown at CES 2013 ranged from 55″ to 95″ with all of the manufacturers trying out different designs and panels to make them stand out.
This year, LG may have taken home the crown already for the most dazing and outlandish 4K TV, pre-emptively revealing the 105-inch curved 4K LCD TV, a television big enough to act as a cinema for a lot of people – and not actually be big enough for most families front room.
The LG TV may be out of this world for many and we doubt the South Korean company is going to announce some amazing price point they managed to reach – rather they bring the price up to show the premium quality of this curved television compared to others in the market.
Design wise, the LG 4K TV looks incredible, the screen fits edge to edge with almost no bezels on the sides or top. At the bottom it looks like LG has either added anodised aluminium or a huge speaker spanning the width of the TV and the height of about 1/8, which would offer incredible sound.
Nobody may ever see or hear about this LG 4K TV again once CES 2014 is over, but LG is one to always want one up on Samsung and other competitors and this early move pushes the closer to this years prize of “worlds most well designed 4K TV you will never own” award.
