Samsung's new 146-inch TV called 'The Wall' can change sizes

As absurdly big as its 146 inch display surface is, Samsung has said that the screen is modular, meaning that it can be both shrunk down or enlarged as needed to cover a whole wall.

The firm's new MicroLED TV is massive, but what's really cool is that it's actually modular.

Samsung have just revealed their latest TV and CES 2018 and it has immediately be dubbed "The Wall". That means that the TV is made of a bunch of smaller squares that are put together. The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with ideal infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology.


"As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, The Wall represents another breakthrough", said Jonghee Han, Samsung Electronics president of visual display business, in a statement. They say it delivers incredible definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form.

"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".

The MicroLED technology uses Gallium Nitride and an array of millions of tiny LEDs to make the image. The Wall can achieve a searing 2,000-nit brightness, higher than any LED LCD we've tested, and the combination should produce breathtaking pop, especially for HDR sources. Samsung has broken through the problems faced by the industry when it comes to such large screen sizes. At that size, a TV is indeed better off mounted on a wall, or even sunken into a wall in your home.
