Samsung’s next flagship TV, the Samsung UN85S9 Ultra HD, looks set to tick every box a cutting edge set can after being revealed at CES 2013.
Measuring a ginormous 85-inches across, it packs in a 4K (UHD) display for crystal clear image quality, beating out this year’s rival LG set by an inch in the size stakes.
Even more interesting is the set’s design. Pencil thin, the floor standing set sits “floating” within a frame not unlike an artist’s easel. This allows the set to be rotated and tilted with ease, giving the screen the appearance that it’s hanging in the air. The frame also houses 2.2 speaker array, offering 120 watt output.
A quad-core processor powers the UI elements of the screen, pushing more content into the Samsung Smart Hub application and delivering intensive picture processing modes such as the Frame Rate Conversion engine and the Motion Judder Canceller. A built in webcam also offers Skype video calling, though I’m not sure I’d want to see any of my pals’ faces blown up to 85-inches…
Due out in March, there’s no pricing info revealed yet, but rest assured, you’ll be unlikely to be able to afford it.
