There's no denying it, it's a monster. TCL has given its flagship Ultra High Definition television announced at CES back in January a more immersive new bed-fellow in the shape of the 110-inch China Star Curved Ultra-HD TV. The company hasn't offered much in the way of details, but read on for what we do know.

The 110-inch China Star Curved Ultra-HD TV felt more like the display you might find in a small cinema setup rather than something you would expect to see in someone's living room. The 3,840 x 2,160 resolution curved LED display boasts a high image depth that's said to create a "near glasses-free 3D effect" and offers a reflection-free 55 degree field of view from 3 m (10 ft) away.

The inclusion of intelligent backlight technology aims to improve the image by dimming certain areas of the display while keeping others bright for improved overall viewing, and a CMI figure of 400 Hz promises seamless and sharp motion resolution. The high brightness (800 nit) TV is backed by the power of a multi-core processor, offers UHD upscaling and comes with HDMI and USB ports.

Unfortunately, we couldn't persuade the TCL reps at IFA to part with any more details or disclose when we might see this behemoth on the market, or at what price. So for the moment, you'll just have to take our word for it that the new China Star model is rather captivating.

Damn - too big for my trailer.

@GeoffG - au contraire! I plan to replace one wall of my trailer with this baby so that sitting three feet away (against the other wall) it will truly be an immersive experience. Plus that curved shape might well improve the aerodynamic profile of the outside of the trailer - a win-win!

For a trailer or RV put it on the outside wall. It's great, like a drive in movie.

Does this imply that TCL has the capability OR has found a reliable source.within China for the LCD itself? Just like majority of the OEM they too might be sourcing it from Samsung or LG !

Is this truly an LED TV or is it an LCD TV with led backlight? I hate that the current crop of TVs are always referred to as LED TVs when they are not. What ever became of the Sony Crystal CLED screen? I suppose OLEDs qualify as LED TVs. Still, an LCD TV with led backlight is NOT an led TV IMHO.
