It’s the end of an era, flat screens are out, 2014 is the year of the curved ultra high definition (UHD) TVs, according to Korean electronics giant Samsung, which unveiled its latest gadget in Dubai on Monday.

Samsung Gulf Electronics announced the launch of its 2014 UHD TV line up across the region including the world’s first and largest curved UHD TV.

Young Soo Kim, Samsung’s Gulf president, stated that it was an extremely difficult feat to achieve UHD in a curved frame and that right now, Samsung is the only company worldwide that can provide this technology. “None of our competitors were able to develop a curved UHD TV. Later they will have it, but right now, we are the only ones that can offer it,” he said.

Developed with a curvature of 4200R, Samsung’s curved screens create a wider field of view with a panoramic effect that is further pronounced by its Auto Depth Enhancer, which automatically adjusts contrast for a greater sense of depth.

UHD dimming technology is also known to optimise picture quality by processing each block of a picture and delivering deeper blacks and improved contrast.

Samsung Curved UHD lineup (U9000) will be available from May onwards across leading retail outlets across the region in the following sizes: 105”, 78”, 65”, 55” & 50”.

The first size to be introduced in the UAE will be the 65” which will retail for $6850.
