 4K TV Resolution

 So, what is a 4K TV? In simple terms, a 4K TV is a TV with 4K resolution. This means it has 3840 x 2160 pixels, for a total of about 8.3 million pixels. When you compare a 4K TV vs a HD TV, there is around four times more resolution on screen which results in more detail and clarity for a clearer picture.

4K TV Size

 There’s more emphasis than ever on larger TV screens, with less 32” – 40” models appearing in new TV line-ups thanks to the rise of big-screen-justifying Ultra HD 4K resolution. Always consider the space you have available for your 4K Smart TV first, but you will appreciate the exceptional image quality on a bigger screen.
