Samsung has announced that it will be showcasing its latest TV at the highly-anticipated Consumer Electronics Show in January.

The award-winning manufacturer will unveil its 85-inch Ultra HD TV set, an innovative television featuring more than 8 million pixels. According to Samsung, the TV boasts “enhanced dimming technology and a very high contrast ratio,” although it did not release any other details.

According to the Consumer Electronic Association, TVs formerly known as 4K will now be called Ultra HD TVs (UHD), or televisions with a minimum resolution 3,840 pixels horizontally and 2,160 vertical pixels. UHD TVs must also have at “least one 4K-capable digital input and display 4K programming natively with no upconverting,” reported

Samsung isn’t the only manufacturer producing Ultra HD TV sets. LG unveiled the 84LM9600, and other manufacturers are scheduled to showcase their TVs at this year’s CES.
