Samsung Unveils Ultra HD TV at CES

At this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Samsung caused a splash with the reveal of their newest smart TV—the S9 UHD. The product serves as Samsung’s entry into the world of Ultra HD TV. Capable of showing an image with four times the resolution of the standard 1080p high-definition TVs, the S9 has been advertised as “the Highest Resolution on the Largest Screen.”

Aside from the picture quality, this model boasts the choice of an 85-inch or 110-inch screen, 3-way 2.2 channels of 120-watt audio and an adjustable screen.

In an interview with ABC News, Samsung Vice President of North America David Steel said the company is focusing on integrating their TVs with mobile devices.

“If you look at smart TVs we are already No. 1. We have built that out and we are building the ecosystem,” Steel said. “And with also our position with phones and tablets we see consumers being on their phones and tablets. We see plenty of room to continue that innovation, but also to be able to link them.”

While Samsung have not disclosed an estimated price for the S9 UHD, they plan to release it sometime in the latter half of the year. For reference’s sake, Sony’s own 84-inch Ultra HD TV is reported to cost $25,000

In addition, Samsung also unveiled new LED and OLED TVs that include its latest innovation, Smart Hub. Besides bringing apps to the TV screen, the Hub also offers advanced gesture and voice features that allows consumers to control their TV using hand motions or vocal orders.
