What is a 4K TV? 4K refers to a horizontal resolution of 4,000 pixels. The current standard for 4K is the ultra high-definition tv (2160p), which has a resolution of 3840 x 2160.
Market Share: As the price of these televisions dropped dramatically in 2014 and 2015, more people bought them. By 2025, half of U.S. households are projected to have a 4K-capable TV. It is expected to be adopted faster than Full HD (1080p). Samsung has already announced the release of an 8K tv, but the low price of 4K and lack of available 8K content is expected to make 4K the HD television of choice in the near future.
Here are some of the major television brands that we will be tracking prices on this Black Friday:
