Samsung Creates a 70 Inch 3D Capable Ultra Definition Prototype

Oh that? It's just my 3,840 x 2,106 resolution UDTV. High definition is so 2005.

Your run of the mill 1080p set has a horizontal resolution of 1,920 pixels and a vertical resolution of 1080. Samsung's new set doubles each count for a total of four times the resolution of a 1080p television.

It's a prototype of course, but this 70 inch monster has us drooling, even if there's nothing to actually watch on it quite yet. It's big and beautiful and it's 3D capable to boot.

Samsung boasts that the prototype set uses a new super-high-speed silicon that enables smooth pictures even with the increased resolution. There's no word yet on when something like this will hit retail, but you can bet we'll be right on top the news when it does.
