Samsung unveils a Giant 146-inch Modular MicroLED TV called The Wall

The 146-inch modular TV demonstrates OLED killing self-emitting MicroLED technology.

As expected, Samsung shows off MicroLED technology at the CES 2018. MicroLED has properties that challenge the OLED technology. Why Samsung, who is making also OLED, is stubbornly improving LED technology is not quite clear.

Samsung introduced "The Wall" – the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV at the CES. The modular, self-emitting MicroLED 146-inch TV display can transform into any size, and delivers impressive brightness, color gamut, color volume and black levels.

MicroLED technology delivers high definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form. It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer (µm) scale LEDs – which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience. Also, the MicroLED screen excels in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology.

Featuring a module-based, bezel-less design, The Wall also exemplifies how consumers can customize their television sizes and shapes to suit their needs. The screen can adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces.

Samsung also featured the world’s first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the US during the second half of 2018 at the CES 2018 event.

Samsung also showcased 2018 Samsung Smart TV’s enhanced connection and convenience functions at the CES event, including Bixby, SmartThings and Universal Guide.

Bixby is an intelligent assistant platform developed by Samsung, enables easier interaction between the TV and its users, thanks to its intuitive UX, and comprehensive voice analysis capabilities. 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will also offer easier sharing and connectivity, thanks to SmartThings, Samsung’s IoT platform hub. It offers a simpler way to control the television and sync 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.

Samsung is providing more details on MicroLED TVs later in Spring. It's unclear yet if there will be also non-modular MicroLED based TVs coming from Samsung in 2018.
