LG holds the crown for the largest production 3D television at 72-inches, but as you might remember, that was 72-inches at 1,920 x 1,200 resolution. It did also showcase a 82-inch Ultra Definition plasma-driven 3DTV (3,840 x 2,160 resolution), but didn’t release it into to the market. Now it looks like Samsung, LG’s biggest LCD display rival, has managed to wrest that record away from LG, by announcing a 70-inch Ultra Definition 3DTV.

You might be wondering what sort of technology enabled Samsung to create such a high resolution screen, one which can refresh at 240Hz. Samsung claims it is all because of the company’s new “Oxide TFT Semiconductor”, which allows for “8 million pixels high-definition at ultra speed.”
No word on exactly when this will hit markets, or the expected price. You can be sure it will cost a pretty penny though, no matter how many free 3D glasses they ship with it.
