Samsung Unveils The Wall, World's First Modular MicroLED 146-inch TV

Samsung Unveiled a 146-inch Modular TV it's Calling “The Wall”
This further hints at Samsung's visionary efforts in consumer offerings presented via the modular MicroLED TV. The Wall is a modular 146-inch television set that uses MicroLED technology to illuminate picture and video.
"It's groundbreaking", said Andrew Sivori, vice president of TV marketing at Samsung Electronics America, "There hasn't really been, for all intents and purposes, a new TV technology in nearly 10 years".
Attended by more than 300 global media and influencers, this year's First Look included remarks from Jonghee Han, Samsung's President of Visual Display, and Dave Das, Senior Vice President of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics America.
Samsung is so amped up about its two flagship televisions this year, it couldn't wait for CES 2018 to start before unleashing them both at its First Look event, held one day before the official press day at the world's most hyped-up consumer electronics show.
We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology.
Thanks to its module-based, bezel-less design, "The Wall" allows consumers to customize their television to the size and shape of their choice.
At CES, Samsung also featured the world's first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the U.S. during the second half of 2018. While there's no real prospect of widespread 8K content any time soon, the company claims the sets can upscale content from as low-resolution as standard definition.
The new features that the 8K solution packs are: detail enhancement for upgrading standard definition content, noise reduction, and edge restoration function for screen objects. "Or, if viewing a concert, the low-frequency sounds of the music might be highlighted to deliver a richer sound", the company said.
There are new features coming to an improved Samsung Smart TV experience as well, including an out-of-box set-up experience that will rival virtually every other smart TV platform out there today.
After LG, it's Samsung's turn to showcase its prowess in the display technology at the CES 2018.
The brand's new TV does not just deliver most impressive visuals, but also provides seamless overall experiences. Because the microLED array creates an unfiltered self-emitting display, you'll also get brighter white levels and extra-vivid colors.
