Samsung unveils 70-inch LCD TV: world's largest?

Samsung 70-inch LCD

Even if their practicality is often limited, large flat-panel televisions are often seen as a source of pride by electronics companies. Such massive panels are meant to demonstrate technical leadership regardless of whether or not they actually become real products. Samsung has just declared its own leadership; its new 70-inch LCD will be the world's largest LCD television, according to the company's announcement today. While other manufacturers and Samsung itself have demonstrated working prototypes larger than 70 inches (including a 103-inch Panasonic model), Samsung may be the first to release such hardware to the market when it ships this new screen in the first half of 2007. The as yet unnamed model will have very high-end capabilities; 1080p native resolution is to be expected, but it will also have a 120 Hz refresh rate (making it ideally suited for 60 frames per second input) and a 180-degree viewing angle in both horizontal and vertical directions. Its early state rules out any pricing information.
