If you think your 55-inch TV is a decent size, you might want to think again: LG has a 105-inch TV that's ready to be shown off, dwarfing whatever you have in your living room. The TV is both curved and Ultra HD, packing an impressive 11 million pixels into 25,470 square centimeters of screen real estate, making it more than three times the size of a standard 55-inch 1080p display.
Traditionally, the few curved TVs on the market have used OLED panels, however this particular model (the 105UB9) uses an LCD panel. Improved TFT technology has allowed even back-lighting across the curved surface, making it possible to use cheaper LCD technology for this display.
As you might have noticed, the TV uses an ultra-wide 21:9 "CinemaScope" aspect ratio with a resolution of 5120 x 2160, which is perfect for watching 'cinema widescreen' films. The added horizontal resolution means any 16:9 content will occupy the standard 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD space with black bars to either side.
LG will be showing off the display at CES 2014, which will be held next month in Las Vegas, ahead of public availability. There's no word on just how much this monstrous TV will cost, but it certainly won't be cheap.
