LG Electronics announced in a press release on Wednesday, 18 December 2013 that it will be unveiling the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio curved Ultra HD TV (Model 105UB9) at the 2014 CES in Las Vegas.
LG’s newest premium TV is also its very first curved ultra HD model, the Korean electronics maker said.
Boasting an 11 million pixel (5120 x 2160) screen resolution, LG said that the 105UB9 represents the successful collaboration between LG Electronics and LG Display.
“Until now, OLED panels were preferred for curved displays due to their ability to generate their own light,” LG said.
According to LG, its display division overcame the challenge of uneven backlighting by refining its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent colour leakage and to ensure a superior viewing experience from virtually any angle.
