Samsung has finally unveiled its first 4K UHD TV at CES. The 85-inch behemoth is the world’s largest Ultra HD TV and beats out Sony’s 4K UHD TV by an inch. The UN85S9 stands out with its unsual industrial design, the screen suspended in a metal frame similar to a flippable whiteboard or an easel. It truly is a gigantic TV that should be a feat to house, but its tiltable screen coupled with the floating design will surely be a conversation starter. The frame isn’t only there for support as it doubles as a 120-watt 2.2 speaker system.

As with Samsung TVs, it features the new Smart Hub software with voice/gesture control and content recommendation powered by a 1.35Ghz quad-core A15 processor. Even without 4K content, the TV uses Samsung’s up-scaling engine to  provide UHD-level picture quality. No word on pricing yet Samsung will be releasing the UN85S9 in March.
