Large 105-inch LG television goes on sale one week after similar Samsung screen

LG has opened pre-orders for the 105-inch curved Ultra HD television it demonstrated at CES, one week after Samsung did the same for its own large-screened television. The 105UC9 LG display has a relatively similar specifications list to the Samsung screen, with an almost identical price tag as well, though LG is opting to initially offer it just within South Korea, before attempting to put it on sale elsewhere.

Sporting a 21:9 aspect ratio, the IPS television has a resolution of 5,120x2,160, with its True 3K Engine Pro being used to upscale lower-resolution video and other content. Capable of showing a 3D image using FPR (Film Patterned Retarder) technology, LG claims the curve of the display has been "carefully calibrated to maximize the immersive ambiance," with the option of employing unused parts of the screen to show additional programming details instead of being left blank.



In terms of audio, the television includes a built-in 7.2-channel, 150W sound system developed in part by Harman Kardon. It also includes LG's Smart TV software based on webOS, which the company claims makes the initial setup and connection if the screen "quicker and a lot more enjoyable."

South Korean customers are able to buy the 105UC9 Ultra HD television for 120 million won ($117,000) according to Engadget, making it marginally cheaper than Samsung's $120,000 display, though when it becomes available in other regions in the fourth quarter, the price may change.
