Just when you thought the television had hit it’s peak in picture quality, think again.  Samsung unveiled an 82″ HDTV that displays a resolution of 3820×2160.  To put it in perspective, today’s top of the line consumer HDTVs display a resolution of 1920x1080p.  Samsung also tossed in a RGB LED backlight, which apparently raises color saturation to 150%, and upped the image refresh to 120hz.

According to TGDaily, these high end TVs are already available, but not to the general market.  Westinghouse currently sells a 52-inch 2160p TV and it goes for a stomach turning $40,000.  Probably safe to say that the Samsung one would be more than double that.
