Samsung 146-inch Modular MicroLED TV is The Wall

Glimpse of the future at Las Vegas consumer technology show Samsung's The Wall TV is a modular 146-inch monster that uses MicroLED

However, if anyone thought 88-inch for a TV is big enough is now for an even bigger surprise, one that measures almost twice as much while sporting the same resolution.

Because the TV is bezel-less, Samsung says, the screen can be made to whatever size you want it to be - though it's not clear how many televisions made up the wall at CES.

Unfortunately, Samsung gave few clues to pricing, or availability. That sounds a rather nebulous but hopefully we can see more specific details as specific TVs are released. You can check out our deeper dive into MicroLED versus OLED TV, but the short version of the story is that, because MicroLED is not organic like OLED, it doesn't suffer any of OLED's pitfalls, including limited brightness and potential burn-in under extreme watching conditions. Colored light-emitting diodes-which are effectively very tiny, self-contained light bulbs-combine to form each pixel on the MicroLED array. It's capable of all the color offered by an LCD display, but with one key difference: Instead of a liquid crystal display with broad backlight zones behind it, microLEDs go completely dark, offering the kind of true blacks that only OLED panels now offer. But you probably don't.

The MicroLED array on The Wall isn't quite as obvious as the huge arrays of LEDs on these larger commercial signs.

Put more simply, "modular" means that you could customize this set to be even larger (or smaller) than 146 inches.

US Ambassador Haley: N. Korea's Nuclear Threat Remains 'Very Dangerous'
According to Haley, combating North Korea's one-sided bargaining tactics will be the first step in achieving any progress. Pyongyang's chief delegate Ri Son-Gwon has a similar role as head of the Committee for Peaceful Reunification of Korea.


As well as the above crowd pleasing huge TV, Samsung discussed supporting TV technologies, important to end users to get the most out of what is often the focus of their living spaces.

Samsung isn't calling this thing "The Wall" for nothing.

It lets consumers enjoy just about any movie or TV show on any channel in 8K resolution regardless of native resolution or method of transmission. For gamers new TVs should enhance experiences with "optimum low input lag and incredibly fast frame rate conversions", says the Samsung Newsroom blog. The new 85-inch 8K LCD TV, the Q9S, demonstrated a new upconversion engine that can take SD (720 by 480), HD (1,920 by 1,080), or 4K (3,840 by 2,160) video and process it to appear crisp at 8K (7,680 by 4,320) resolution. Combined into the full 146-inch display, the panels offer full 4k resolution.

As for the 85-inch 8K QLED TV? Your 4K TV isn't obsolete, and won't be for a while.
