Samsung Unveils 146-Inch, Wall-Sized TV Called 'The Wall'

Samsung MicroLED makes massive, 146-inch modular TV a reality

LG declared world's largest 88-inch 8k TV ahead of the The Consumer Electronics Show

LG already supports Dolby Vision HDR in its OLED screens, and its latest televisions will now also support HDR10, the rival HDR specification used by Sony's PS4 Pro and Microsoft's Xbox One X consoles, as well as some streaming services.

According to Samsung the TV uses what they call MicroLEDs.

Other options for giant TV displays have been shown off at CES this year.

"The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience", Samsung said in a statement after the TV's unveiling on January 7. By pressing a button, you can lower the screen into a box, where it wraps around a metal cylinder, kind of like a window blind. Yet the company keeps investing in microLED TV R&D in parallel, which has the potential for much brighter displays with a higher luminous efficiency, while still offering the pure blacks from OLEDs as it is too a self-emitting technology.

Though, LG has still not proposed a price line for its brand new model- 88-inch 8K TV (OLED) television, but we can surely believe to see this 1 expense tens of 1000's of dollars, which is quite a fair deal.

LG Display chief executive Dr Sang-Beom Han said the television was created to "provide new value to customers" who may want to hide their televisions from view. It's billed as the first consumer modular MicroLED television or, for the layman, "The Screen of the Future".

If 88 inches isn't enough, the company also announced a mammoth 146-inch modular TV, called The Wall, made up small panels that are connected together to form the screen. It will be available later this year.

You can ask the voice assistant to search for movies, play your favorite show, do a Google Search or read you the weather from your TV.

The Wall measures 146-inches diagonally across, or more than three and a half metres.

So there you have it, next-generation electro-QLED technology has finally arrived and so far its specs indicate something that could blow both current LCD TVs and the best that OLED offers out of the water, if only we can soon start seeing more normal-sized versions of this monster TV on the market.
