Samsung’s 105-Inch curved UHDTV will cost less than $150,000

Samsung is set to begin delivering its curved Ultra HD displays and content to watch on the better than-HD sets. At a product unveiling Thursday at the Guggenheim Museum the Korean electronics giant announced its first curved Ultra HD displays, the 55- and 65-inch U9000 model displays, would be arriving in stores later this month. The sets are priced at $3,999.99 and $4,999.99, respectively. A 78-inch model, priced at $7,999.99, is due later this year.

Samsung announced pricing and availability for a slew of Ultra High Definition Televisions (UHDTVs) today including flat and curved models, but one TV still doesn’t have an official price. The company’s impressive 105-inch curved UHDTV is set to launch in the second half of 2014, and TechnoBuffalo has learned that the massive set will cost less than Samsung’s $150,000 110-inch non-curved UHD LED set. Yep, probably only affordable for rock stars right now. According to Samsung Director of Home Entertainment Marketing-LED Shane Higby, the 105-inch set will cost somewhere between $40,000 and $149,000. Granted that’s still a pretty big window, but we wouldn’t count on the price dropping much lower than $100,00. If you’re hoping to pick up this UHDTV start saving now, or more realistically you probably should have started saving 10 years ago.
