LG's Ultra High-Definition TV Goes on Sale in Korea This Year

Posted Mon Jul 23, 2012 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It's coming in at 25 million won, or around $22,000 USD.

The folks at LG have one very impressive set on the way. It's a TV that boasts a higher resolution than most gear can handle - 3,840 x 2,160. That means a potentially superior picture, assuming the source material is there.

Of course, 84" of UHD goodness means more than just future-proofing for 4K. It means that you'll enjoy a 1080p resolution when using passive 3D glasses. That's something of a selling point to be sure, though active 3D glasses on UHD TVs will undoubtedly give you full resolution.

Sure, the new set may be $22,000 and only launching in Korea, but it gives you a reason to have a receiver with 4K upscaling built in.
