Samsung MicroLED makes massive, 146-inch modular TV a reality

This means that the TV display can be made smaller if required.

At achieving this latter PR stunt, The Wall succeeds wonderfully.

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, according to Samsung.

The particular model Samsung displayed at CES measures in at 146 diagonal inches. "But the general reaction by foreign media is that Samsung and LG dominated other global companies in the TV and display sectors, which are the cores of CES".

"Micro " LED is kind of a misleading name, because this new TV technology from Samsung can create truly big screens.

Based on my impressions, The Wall and MicroLED very much challenge OLED for TV picture supremacy. But whether or not micro LED TVs could contend for a spot in your living room over OLED TVs remain to be seen. 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. Perhaps MicroLED can get brighter; Samsung hasn't specified yet.

Other key specs of "The Wall" include a full HDR support package with inclusion of full DCI-P3 wide color gamut and some essentially ideal contrast, with total black levels where needed alongside spectacularly high peak brightness as we'd mentioned above. This results in a high contrast footage that is better than the traditional LCD screens. MicroLED is the house-sized version, and Samsung says it will ship a 146-inch version this year. It's not backlit like an LCD TV.

Samsung hasn't yet named an official price for The Wall or a firm launch date but there will be a press event in March with more information.
