Vizio will be launching a new “Reference Series” line of 4K TVs sometime during the first half of this year. The new TVs will come in two different sizes to choose from, 65 and a massive 120-inches.
Initially, Vizio was to deliver a 120-inch 1080p set but it later vanished from their product timeline. Most likely, they were planning to push forward with the newer technology instead before making such a dramatic leap in size–a size would officially place them as the largest available LED screen on the consumer market.
Vizio is promising a breath-taking picture that delivers twice the backlit brightness of regular LED screens with 384-zone Full Array local dimming. It will offer 1200 Clear Action refresh rate resulting in a killer image. They also say it is going turn heads with its low latency and 120fps (frames per second) leading to a killer gaming experience.
All of this is possible thanks to Vizio’s V6 dual-core processor inside that also sports a quad-core GPU.
Both models will have an integrated 5.1 soundbar system featuring a wireless subwoofer and two rear speakers. The bar itself is built into the TV’s base.
It will of course have all of your favorite apps and feature both wired and wireless internet.
We reached out to Vizio but the only thing they could confirm was that the new series will be released sometime during the first half of 2015. It’s not a solid date, but it’s a start, as it means that 120-inches of TV is closer to your living room than ever before. Until then, the largest Vizio you can get your hands on is the latest version of their 80-inch model.
