Ultra-definition 4K TVs launched by LG
The next-next-gen standard for UHD TVs are now available in Korea.
TVs still aren't quite a big as the default lady
For mere mortals a $22,000 TV probably seems like overkill, but in South Korea LG has put 84 units up for sale of the first TV to boast Ultra-High Definition resolutions of 3840×2160.
Just as high as its resolution is its size at a whopping 84-inches. With 8.3 million pixels it has four-times the resolution of a standard 1080p TV, though it still uses the same LED display and passive 3D technology as in your existing TV.
This is something of a coup for LG beating its Korean rival Samsung to the first commercially available 4K resolution TV, as Samsung has plans to launch a tiny 75-inch ES9000 model later this year.
With the march of progress expect to see a 4K set under £2,000 by around 2016!
