This year at CES, Samsung is all about the curve. The company’s line of curved SUHD TVs (that’s upgraded ultra HD, with an S, because why not?) is eye-popping up close. Gazing into its black, glassy worlds reveals a picture quality that looks realer than real. This is thanks in part to nanocrystal color technology that captures 64 times as much color as your average LCD TV.

Samsung’s SUHD TVs range from 48 inches to 88 inches in three lines: JS9500, JS9000, and JS8500. The company also gave journalists at CES a sneak peek at a special 82-inch edition designed by Fuseproject designer Yves Behar. The curved, 21:9 4K TV perks up when you watch it, pivoting toward the user from atop its very designery cube, which functions as both a stand and a place for the TV’s brains to live.

Still, an eye-popping curved display isn’t of much use without 4K content. Samsung understands that, and it’s pushing a new UHD alliance to solve the whole “not having anything to watch” issue.

Samsung did not announce pricing or release information for the SUHD TVs at its press event.
