Unlike its flat colleagues, curved TVs, Samsung says, are meant to offer a more panoramic, true-to-life viewing effect. Samsung's curved TV lineup for 2014 includes the 105-inch curved UHD and the U9000 Series. The curved 4K display, the 105-inch LCD TV (seen here with a single piece of wood backing) has a widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio, just like the LG TV.
The U9000 Series will come in three display sizes: 78-, 65-, and 55-inch screens. Despite the curve, consumers can continue to furnish homes with TVs as gallery; the screens can be wall mounted with the use of a specialty kit. Pricing for the new entrants to Samsung's home-theater electronics hasn't been announced, but it's safe to say they won't be anywhere near the bargain-basement level.
