Just as we predicted, Ultra HD is putting in a strong showing at CES 2013, with two manufacturers busting out some massive screens.

Samsung and TCL were both showing off their 110-inch TVs at day one of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Samsung's TV has the same design as the Gallery Display 85-inch panel, while TCL has actually got its TV featured in the next Iron Man film, apparently as Tony Stark's choice of viewing.

Both are definitely hilariously oversized, with a total screen area of 3.335 square metres.

TCL actually already unveiled their 110" 4K TV back in March 2012, and theirs also supports 3D and it's a touchscreen.

As for the Samsung one, it's panel is actually supplied by a Chinese company, called BOE (who has also unveiled their 110" 4K TV from last year too). So basically, Samsung just bought the panel for their bragging rights, which is pretty embarrassing.

So far, TCL and BOE is the only two company in the world that can produce such size of panels. And the only difference between them is TCL's panel supports 3D and touchscreen, while BOE's doesn't.

I think it's because Samsung doesn't believe that LCD is the future. They believe that the future is in OLED hence why they are directing their efforts there.
