Scott Birnbaum, a Samsung vice president for LCD sales, says the next wave of High-Definition TVs will offer a picture resolution of 4,000 x 2,000 pixels, eight times the resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. That's according to an article by The New York Times.
However, the executive added that Samsung hasn't even started building a plant to produce the new model, but Birnbaum says the company is discussing the super-resolution set with customers.
Birnbaum also told The Times that worldwide demand for LCD sets are now outpacing supply, which is keeping profits up.
Samsung is now the world's leading seller of LCD TVs.
