LG to unveil gigantic 105-inch curved 4K Ultra HD TV at CES 2014

In a highly noteworthy announcement made on Wednesday evening, LG said that it will unveil a massive 105-inch curved 4K Ultra HD TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014, which begins on January 7.

The LG 105UB9 TV features an LCD rather than the more expensive OLED display, thanks to a much better TFT technology which ensures an even backlighting across the curved surface. The display is being touted by LG as the world's first 105-inch curved Ultra HD TV.

The massive 105-inch TV set from LG features an ultra-wide 21:9 `CinemaScope' aspect ratio, and not the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. As a result of the TV's ultra-wide aspect ratio - which provides a 5,120 x 2,160 UHD resolution and offers a close match to ultra-wide-screen movies -, cinematic releases are displayed with almost negligible letterboxing or black bars.

According to LG, one of the advantages of the extended screen width of the 105UB9 TV is that "it enables users to access viewing information on the side of the screen without blocking any of the ongoing action."

Despite the fact that there has been no official disclosure from LG about the expected price of the 105UB9 TV, it is being speculated that the gigantic TV will cost at least $80,000.
