Pricing on the 110 inch model still up in the air.

Samsung's S9 85 inch UHD TV is a full inch larger than Sony's paltry 84 inch model, and Samsung will begin accepting pre-orders at the end of March. The UN85S9 includes Samsung's Precision Black Pro and a proprietary upscaler for upscaled UHD.

The TV also features Samsung's teased "unprecedented new shape," which sets the display in a stylish frame not functionally unlike a standing chalkboard frame. Included with the new display standard is Samsung's quad-core processor-powered smart TV capabilities.

The cost of this latest and greatest offering is $39,999, which dwarfs the prices of Sony and LG's 84 inch models. Samsung has previously teased 95 inch and 110 inch versions, which promise to be even more staggering pricewise.
