MidEast buyers snap up world’s largest TV

First ten units sold of this mega TV where all to MidEast buyers

MidEast buyers snap up world’s largest TV

Electronics giant Samsung
has launched the biggest television set in the world in
South Korea, generating strong demand across the region.

The
first ten were ordered from the Middle East for a price of $165,250 per unit, but
Samsung predicted that the largest quantities will be sold to Chinese buyers.

The
screen, which measures 110 inches from corner to corner, uses U-HDTV technology,
is larger than a king-sized bed and four times sharper than Samsung’s current
high definition models.

At
102 inches wide and 70 inches tall, this new
model dwarfs the size of the former largest Samsung U-HDTV, which measured 85
inches.

This 110-inch giant is not the only huge TV
being previewed in the lead up to the CES consumer electronics show at the start of January. LG announced
that they will be showcasing their ultra-wide 105-inch curved U-HDTV at the Las Vegas event, along with Samsung’s 105-inch curved TV.

Worlds largest TV! Wow!

Add that to largest mall, waterparks, building (which really is pretty cool, to be honest) and probably cheesecake, pizza and gym. Perhaps scratch that last one.
