Samsung, LG face off at CES with 105" curved UltraHD TVs

Call it a battle of the Korean giants: both Samsung and LG have announced that they will bring 105", ultra-widescreen curved UltraHD TVs to CES 2014.

Both are LED sets with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 5,120 x 2,160 resolution, or 11 million pixels. That's 1.3 times standard UltraHD.
There are differences between the two: Samsung's features the same Quadramatic Pictures upscaling as its current UHD TVs, the F9000 Series. LG's entry meanwhile has an improved Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology developed by its Electronics and Display Divisions.
Neither has announced prices or release dates, but consider this: Samsung charges about $40,000 for the 84" UltraHD TV it launched at CES last year.
