LG announces World's Biggest 105-inch, 21:9 5K Curved TV

29 July, 2014 Technology



The latest television to come from the LG is the LG-105UC9, boasting a spec sheet that is scarcely believable.


Well, first of all, this TV is 5K. Or at least that's what LG is calling it, since it's not an official term. The name comes from the resolution, which is an astonishing 5120 x 2160 resolution, which gives it an 21:9 aspect ratio. If that was not enough, the panel is a whopping 105-inches in size and is curved so it can go around your house more easily.




Underneath that massive panel is a 7.2 channel, 150W speaker system designed in collaboration with Harmon Kardon. The television runs on webOS, as have some of LG's recent models.


With there being very little content in native 4K, it's a bit hard to justify spending money on a 4K TV. This one has even more pixels, not mention an awkward 21:9 aspect ratio. Granted, most movies are shot in 21:9, you'll rarely find them in that aspect ratio on something like a Blu-ray, so you'll mostly be zooming in to get rid of the black bars, which doesn't sound all that great.
