Samsung 85-inch UHD TV set to debut at CES 2013

It may be only November, but many in the tech world are looking towards January 2013 already, and the CES trade show in Las Vegas at the beginning of the month. Pocket-lint is no exception, with rumours and gossip already starting to build on what we might see in the world of consumer electronics.

Then, there are those who just come out with it, including Samsung, which has proudly announced that one of the centrepieces for its CES presence will be an 85-inch Ultra High Definition TV.

This comes after the set was awarded a CES 2013 Best of Innovation award and, understandably, the company is happy to cry out from the rooftops about it.

"Samsung's 85-inch UHD TV, the world's largest commercialised UHD LED TV, boasts lifelike picture quality in ultra HD resolution with over 8 million pixels, four times the resolution of Full HD displays," it says.

"Samsung's UHD TV uses an innovative enhanced dimming technology and a very high contrast ratio to deliver deep, real blacks and pure whites for greater detail and unmatched picture clarity. This new, cutting-edge TV also offers a powerful and dynamic range of sounds."

It will be unveiled at the manufacturer's CES press conference on 7 January and Pocket-lint will be in attendance to tell you exactly what we think.

Samsung has also been awarded a Best of Innovation award for its Smart TV Camera, which will also debut at the show. It adds Smart Interaction services, such as facial recognition and gesture control, to the company's Smart TV sets that don't come with a built-in camera.
