Samsung 146-inch Modular MicroLED TV is The Wall

For once in technology circles, "bezel-less" really means zero bezels, and that is how Samsung makes these modular TVs so configurable and able to extend to larger than life levels.

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.

The Wall TV, which is clearly not going to sell mainstream at that 146-inch size, is showing what the future of televisions could offer. "We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers".

"Samsung also showed off two TVs that are more likely to go on sale this year: "85" and 65" models with an "8K" resolution (7680 x 4320). MicroLEDs are a lot smaller than regular LEDs, and they serve as their own source of light. Each pixel emits light on its own, making the MicroLED array function closer to an OLED panel or a plasma TV than a conventional LCD TV that requires a backlight to illuminate the image formed by the liquid crystal layer.

The Wall comes with an edge-to-edge display.

The new AI technology from Samsung is capable of upscaling any video content into an 8K resolution, it does this by creating more details, reducing noise and altering the content.

The AI technology is created to upscale standard definition content to 8K and uses a proprietary algorithm to adjust screen resolution based on the picture quality characteristics of each scene. It packs an 8K resolution regardless of its size. "Or, if viewing a concert, the low-frequency sounds of the music might be highlighted to deliver a richer sound", the company said.

The lack of native 8K content is another issue to deal, and Samsung has a unique solution for that too in the form of an AI chip that the TVs come equipped with. Samsung is also keeping quiet about the technical aspects of how these multiple panels will connect, or what kind of software will support the varied resolutions and shapes offered by the modular design. The advancements include easier sharing and connectivity, simpler controls for the television, and syncing with other devices. 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.

The brand's new TV does not just deliver most impressive visuals, but also provides seamless overall experiences.

"In 2018, our "best TV ever" gets even better", he said.
