Samsung is advancing and moving forward in the field of television. After a 2017’s OLED TVs, it has come to CES 2018 with an enormous 4K TV, the company calling The Wall.
The company has completely redesigned the LCD panel and it is claiming the device to be “the world’s first modular TV.” it has redesigned the LCD panel to block interior light leakage, an Achilles heel of LCD displays. Samsung’s 2017 flagship TV, the Q9, costs $3,500 in the US so the 2018 version is expected to be cheaper.
The Wall uses a scattering pattern to control the beam form and measures 146 inches, uses MicroLED technology to produce its picture. MicroLED emits its own light and creates the deep blacks and lush colors normally reserved for OLED sets without requiring the backlight.
The Micro LED technology contains Quantum Dots which reduces the problems of heat or color degradation.
Samsung says The Wall’s bezel-less design will ultimately allow customers to create a TV-sized just for their needs. The company says the module-based screen can be used to create a wall-sized display but it has not revealed further specifics about how that will work.
Samsung has very real plans to commercialize the concept of The Wall. More details are expected to come at a global launch. The company even has not revealed pricing information or other details related to its step-down 2018 TVs yet. Samsung says, “The modular screen can be used to create a wall-sized display, or simply let consumers increase their traditional screen size to suit a new room in the home.”
