A 146-inch television will soon be available for purchase

12 January 2018

CES has often been the launchpad for several new technologies and this year, Samsung hopes to catapult the concept of modular TVs to the mainstream with an enormous 146-inch TV.

The Wall measures 146-inches diagonally across, or more than three and a half metres. "But the general reaction by foreign media is that Samsung and LG dominated other global companies in the TV and display sectors, which are the cores of CES". This is the heart and soul of the new Wall TV from the company and Samsung is promising that it will be part of the "screen of the future".

This is because the display is actually composed of many smaller modules that can be arranged to form unusual dimensions - one example that was squat and super-wide was briefly shown at the presentation.

Samsung Electronics on Monday introduced "The Wall", the world's first modular microLED television. This can be a problem for OLED screens as, unlike LCD displays which have own backlight, the light for an OLED screen is created by the pixels themselves - which, in the case of an 8K display, are tiny. Thus, this beast of a television can also get incredibly bright, much more so than OLED, managing up to over 2000 nits according to its makers.

Other key specs of "The Wall" include a full HDR support package with inclusion of full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and some essentially flawless contrast, with total black levels where needed alongside spectacularly high peak brightness as we'd mentioned above.

However, don't expect to see this TV in retail stores anytime soon. This results in a high contrast footage that is better than the traditional LCD screens.

Another cool feature of the Wall is that it can be customized to even larger sizes.

The company unveiled its 146-inch television screen "The Wall" this week at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

The prototype OLED TV can roll back up with the press of a button, and can even peek out just a little to display information such as the weather and time. Companies like LG and Samsung were some of the biggest players in the event but Amazon, Asus, Acer and many other brands including those that make popular PC peripherals also made their presence felt in the event.
