Samsung: UHD, Smart TV and curves

Samsung has unveiled their most prominent new TV models, but has not yet revealed the entire line-up. It is clear that Samsung’s TVs are larger and more exclusive than ever.

Samsung will launch the “world’s largest curved Ultra HD TV”, measuring 105 inches diagonally. The TV a resolution of 5120 x 2160 pixels in the extra-wide 21:9 format, which some manufacturers have started calling 5K here at CES 2014. In addition, Samsung is also exhibiting the"world's largest UHD TV”. This 110-inch TV is flat, but Samsung seems to have forgotten that Panasonic has had a 152-inch 4K TV for sale for year. It is not clear if Samsung is planning to release the 110-inch TV in the market.

In 2014, Samsung will once again focus on Smart TV and TV apps. One of the new features is Multi-Link, which makes it possible to divide the screen into two and show different material on each side. Samsung’s new Smart TVs will be powered by a new, faster Quad Core Plus processor that also enables that Instant On function to turn on the TV near-instantly. Lastly, there is Samsung’s new remote.

Samsung once again highlights its Evolution Kit, which allows existing owners to upgrade the Smart TV platform from year to year via a small module that can be connected to the back of the TV. The 2014 Evolution Kit is a so-called OneConnect box that also holds all of the TV connectors. The Evolution Kit will upgrade previous Samsung TVs, but the 2014 models will also feature a port that lets viewers upgrade from 2015 and beyond.

The launch dates for Samsung’s new TV line-up has still not been announced, but we are chasing more details here at CES 2014.
