FAQs: Smart TV brands

Q. What is the difference between 4K and UHD?

Ans. The only difference between 4K and UHD is their resolution. 4K resolution is 4096 x 2160 pixels and UHD is 3840 x 2160 pixels. UHD resolution is slightly less than the resolution of 4k and often, UHD is simply referred to as 4K to avoid confusion. Both 4K and UHD are approximately four times that of the common 1080p resolution found in most computer monitors or lower budget TVs.

Q. Are there any disadvantages of a 4K TV?

Ans. The only downside of owning a 4K TV is the lack of availability of 4K resolution content. Most movies and shows are commonly available at 1080p resolution. Also, 4K resolution consumes large amounts of space so downloading such content will also consume much more data than what is required for downloading content in 1080p resolution.

Q. Will normal HDMI cables work for displaying 4K content?

Ans. Yes, the normal HDMI cables used for displaying 1080p content work for 4K resolution as well. However, to view 4K Ultra HD displays, HDMI will not be able to function and HDMI 2.0 will be required.
