Samsung - The World's First Bendable UHD TV

Discover the latest immersive technology with Samsung’s new curved design and lifelike UHD 4K picture quality, offering any movie, sport, show or streaming content all with 4 times the resolution of full HD with UHD Upscaling.

Just as in cinemas the curved screen allows the edges of the image to bend into the viewer’s peripheral vision, giving that all-important feeling of total absorption with the added bonus of exceptional colour and dramatically improved field of view. Samsung have also jumped the hurdles experienced by previous curved-screen enthusiasts, LG and Sony, offering a screen that provides two modes – both flat and curved.

The screen converts forms within seven seconds and at just the touch of a button. It’s the best of both worlds – a television screen that’s flat when you want it to be, and curved when you want that cinema-screen effect. The innovative technology is not the only impressive aspect, at a huge 105 inches in size it is large enough to allow more than one viewer to enjoy all the ‘sweet spot’ of the screen (where you can appreciate the full effect of the curvature).

Samsung has even equipped the model with a nifty UHD dimming and UHD upscaling for even higher image quality and enhanced contrast. Any potential design flaws have also been swiftly avoided as the screen comes with a beautiful easel-like stand which supports its whopping size.

The retail price is yet to be revealed, but considering its non-bendy predecessor cost $120,000 in the U.S., and this model is at the cutting edge of modern technology, it may be safe to predict that the screen may be upward of $200,000.
