"The company is also increasingly focused on building highly automated factories based not in China, but in the backyard of Foxconn’s customers.

“We are building factories in the U.S., in Indonesia, because we want to cater to customers there,” Gou said.

Gou said a two-hour conversation last November with a representative of U.S. investment promotion organization SelectUSA had spurred his interest in investing in the U.S. beyond the plant in Harrisburg, Pa., that has already been announced.

“We have many big projects in the U.S. coming up,” said Gou. “For instance, is it possible to make our 120-inch TVs in Taiwan and ship them over? It’s impossible. We have to make them on site.”

Color me significantly more excited about the prospects for Vizio's 120-inch now that Gou is actually talking about it.

Yeah, well, let's say before I believed this:

Chances of 65" Reference 50/50... Chances of 120" Reference 0%

Now I believe:
Chances of 120" Reference 30/70... Chances of 65" Reference 70/30

Or something like that?

It would be very strange if both - 65'' 120'' - 'Vizio claim' would have 384 zones,.I am a sceptic.

Vizio ''Reference Series 65'' + 120''
High Dynamic Range combined with a powerfull 800 nit bright backlight and 384 Active LED Zones for unprecedented contrast, Ultra Color Spectrum with full support for true 10 bit color.

seems that the ''Reference Series'' does cover 80% of Rec 2020 color space according Vizio..
