Samsung introduces the future of displays

There's no word yet on the availability of the modular TV in the market, but a Variety report claims Samsung plans to commercially start selling the device sometime this year. "As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, "The Wall" represents another breakthrough".

Samsung's "The Wall", a 146-inch modular TV with MicroLED technology delivers incredible definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form.

In form, The Wall features a module-based, bezel-less design, enabling consumers to customise their television sizes and shapes to suit their needs, able to adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces.

Samsung's 146-inch TV takes advantage of the new technology, what the company likes to called as microLEDs.

"The Wall" is a self-emitting TV with micrometer scale LEDs, which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

"We believe [MicroLED technology] is one of the most important and unprecedented TV technologies to debut in more than a decade", said Joe Stinziano, EVP, Samsung Electronics America, at the press conference. As a result, The Wall's self-emitting technology removes the need for color filters altogether and is able to deliver up to 2000 nits of peak brightness, brighter white hues, darker black shades and the truest natural colors.




In the meantime, Samsung also showed off a few more accessible TVs at the First Look event.

The 88-inch prototype, to be shown behind closed doors this week, will also features an 8K resolution.

The world's biggest electronics show doesn't kick off for another 24 hours, but Samsung has snuck in early, unveiling the screen of the future. This includes detail enhancement - upgrading SD content, noise reduction, edge-restoration function - which more clearly outlines on-screen objects.

It demonstrated how Bixby will enable easier interaction between the TV and consumer, thanks to the intuitive UX and voice-analysis capabilities in its sets to be released this year. 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will also offer easier sharing and connectivity, thanks to SmartThings, Samsung's IoT platform hub.

Samsung In addition to the MicroLED concept, Samsung unveiled a number of 2018 LCD televisions that the company promises will offer better color performance, contrast, and deeper black levels.

2018 will also see the launch of Universal Guide, a program which will automatically recommend content for you according to your viewing preferences.
