Yesterday at IFA 2013, Panasonic showed off its impressive new 65-inch VIERA WT600 4K TV at IFA 2013, but today belongs to Samsung. The Korean electronics giant has revealed two enormous Ultra High Definition (UHD) televisions.
At CES in January, Samsung gave us a glimpse of things to come with an 85-inch 4K LED TV. For Berlin's IFA, the company has upped its game with the European debut of a 98-inch S9 model and a 110-inch monster (the latter would likely nab the crown of world's largest TV). Details are somewhat lacking at the moment, but we'll update this post as we learn more. One thing is for certain, buyers are going to need a suitably large bank roll to go with the huge room needed to house either of these behemoths.
In related news, the company also announced 55-inch curved and flat format UHD OLED TVs, representing "an unprecedented leap forward for picture quality and sharp contrast with its self-emitting pixels and natural motion."
Update 10/5/13: Samsung Europe's Senior Director of Sales & Marketing Michael Zoeller has revealed that the production versions of the 98- and 110-inch UHD TV prototypes shown off by the company at IFA 2103 will have the same feature set at the company's 85-inch S9 UHD TV first shown at CES back in January. Unfortunately, dimension and weight information is not available at this time.
