Our first look at Samsung's massive 146-inch 4K MicroLED TV

The biggest challenge when 4K was launched was the lack of a content ecosystem for it, which continues to be an issue even today as most TV stations fail to broadcast 4K content.

"The Wall", revealed in advance of the Consumer Electronics Show, is the world's first Modular MicroLed 146-inch TV.

The modular, self-emitting display is created to offer consumers what Samsung calls is an outstanding viewing experience, while acting as a centralised connected smart hub to enhance everyday life. These microLEDs, as they are called, are much smaller than current LEDs and serve as their own light source.

"Modular" means you can have more than one, so consumers can customise their TV size and shape by purchasing more than one and putting them together like a puzzle.

Again, showing off insane TVs at CES is nothing new-Samsung itself showcased a 170-inch display at the show just two years ago. A company representative said The Wall's "modules can be combined to increase the size of the overall TV" and said The Wall "could be sized smaller than 146 inches". What we do know is MicroLED "excels in durability and effectiveness", offering the "ultimate viewing experience" without backlight or color filters.

LG also showed off a rollup 65inch TV set at the CES show, which can be easily sotred when not in use or for transport. "2018 will also see the launch of Universal Guide - an advanced program guide which automatically recommends TV programs and content according to a user's preferences", Samsung announced. This AI technology upscales standard definition content to 8K resolution.

Despite the fact that the market is now flooded with an ever-increasing number of displays capable of realizing super-high resolution such as UHD and 8K, many viewers are not able to fully enjoy the experience due to the lack of available high resolution content.

The 85-inch Q9S 8K TV uses smart AI algorithm to upscale content to 7680 x 4320 resolution.

Those interested are welcomed at Samsung's CES booth #15006, Level 1, Central Hall of Las Vegas Convention Center, within January 9 and 12. It offers a simpler way to control the television and sync with other devices. Perhaps we'll find out more this week as CES progresses. But we're sure that's affordable for those clients for whom an 80-inch+ 4K TV or a projector screen isn't good (or modern) enough.
