Is It Time to Buy a 4K TV?


If you think 4K-resolution screens look good, Samsung is going to melt your eyes with an 11K display on your smartphone.

It sounds pretty incredible, especially considering that we are still wrapping our heads around 4K and 5K resolution in our computer screens, TVs and some phones.

Samsung though wants to stay one step ahead in the game and announced that the company plans to have 11K resolution screens in their smartphones by 2018, only 3 years away from now.

What would that look like?

As Korea's Electronic Times reports, the resolution would be so high that it will create an optical illusion that resembles 3D.

Until we get our hands on that technology, here are some other Samsung products that the company has already made available to the customers:
