It may be big – a bit too big – but LG has announced that it will bring out the world’s largest 3D Ultra Definition TV, also packing in a whole lot of its own technology with it – including its Smart TV ecosystem and a new “Magic Remote” feature.
With the screen standing at 84-inches, the television is very thin. It also boasts superb picture quality thanks to its Ultra Definition display – meaning that it is 4 times better than 1080p. This essentially means that it has 3840 x 2160 resolution, compared to the 1920 x 1080 resolution of a 1080p television.
It also comes with this new “Magic Remote” feature, which recognises four types of commands – a point, magic gesture, wheel or voice recognition.
No pricing or release date has been announced. Full press release is below.
