Samsung Elec, LG Display Get Spotlight at CES

LG W8 ThinQ AI Samsung Elec, LG Display Get Spotlight at CES

The diagonal size of this behemoth of a TV is 146 inches.

Samsung has debuted a 146-inch TV at CES that the company calls The Wall, which also sports modular MicroLED technology.

Samsung is taking the idea of a "big screen TV" to the next level. The Wall is a modular television that dwarfs anything else on the show floor. This means that the TV display can be made smaller if required.

The MicroLED technology eliminates the need for a backlight and the screen excels in durability and effectiveness. Furthermore, just as is the case with OLED, the pixels (any one of several million of them inside a micro LED 4K TV bar) can turn off or on completely on an individual basis for ideal scene dimming and bright highlights. The Wall claims to produce 2,000 nits of brightness and this technology, even though it is still emerging is more longlasting than its closest competitor, the OLED.

United States denies involvement in drone attacks on Russian bases
The drones, according to data from the captured drones showed that it was launched from the rebel-controlled Idlib area. Seven were shot down and the remaining three exploded after crashing nearby on the night of 5 January.

Samsung Electronics' "The Wall", the first MicroLED TV, and the rollable display from LG Display stood out the most, being selected for recommendation by most of the media. Perhaps MicroLED can get brighter; Samsung hasn't specified yet.

The Wall was named by US broadcaster CNN as one of the three TVs "that could change how you watch movies".

So there you have it, next-generation electro-QLED technology has finally arrived and so far its specs indicate something that could blow both current LCD TVs and the best that OLED offers out of the water, if only we can soon start seeing more normal-sized versions of this monster TV on the market.

The Wall is expected to come available during upcoming summer but there are no price details as of yet.
