Seeing Samsung's 'The Wall' MicroLED TV Made Me a Believer

The diagonal size of this behemoth of a TV is 146 inches.

CES historians will remember that Samsung actually demo'd a 170-inch modular TV concept at CES 2018. 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".

The Wall's "micro LED" display has numerous same benefits as next-generation OLED displays, but without any of the drawbacks like "burn-in". The Wall is a modular television that dwarfs anything else on the show floor. Like OLED, micro LED tech creates light and color right inside a TV's pixels themselves and thus doesn't require any sort of large, bulky LED backlight arrays.

Hisense's Laser TV projector can produce a 140-inch display on a smaller budget, and will cost $US9,999 when it's released in America.

It is difficulty to manufacture micro-LED screens because because the LEDs as they are to be individually placed onto a layer by machines.

The Wall is a 146-inch 4K Tv that has just been revealed by Samsung at the CES in Las Vegas. "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". At that size, a TV is indeed better off mounted on a wall, or even sunken into a wall in your home.

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.
