The hardware includes Trilumios Display technology to enhance the display's colours and X-tended Dynamic Range to ensure more prominent whites and blacks, while the X-Reality Pro engine will upscale content.

The S90 will also come equipped with a 4.2 channel multi-angle live speaker system, incorporating the firm's ClearAudio+ Discrete Processing software for 360-degree sound.

Additional software features will include Social Viewing for watching with friends over Skype, a football-watching mode with built-in Twitter integration and the option to mirror content being streamed from a mobile device.

4K or Ultra-HD content is seen as the next frontier in home entertainment, with Netflix already announcing limited support across some of its titles.

A number of technology companies are expected to reveal details of their 4K offerings at next month's IFA or Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin.

The event, which has been operating annually since 2005 is seen as one of the world's leading trade shows in terms of consumer electronics and household appliances.
