The incredibly tiny MicroLEDs emit their own light similar to OLED and do not require a backlight
Samsung Electronics has lunched "The Wall", a consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV.
Samsung's 85-inch Q9S QLED TV is the company's first commercial 8K television that leverages AI to upscale content to an incredible 7,680 x 4,320-pixel resolution. An enormous 146-inch TV, The Wall uses a MicroLED - the same technology Samsung uses for its home cinemas.
In a bid to push consumers to upgrade their television sets, TV makers have been pushing increasingly large screens, some as big as 75 inches or even 80 inches. In other words, no backlight is required, similar to organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology. After a 2017's OLED TVs, it has come to CES 2018 with an enormous 4K TV, the company calling The Wall. The latest AI technology allows content and automatically upscales images or content into 8K resolution regardless of native resolution or method of transmission.
Samsung's 146-inch TV takes advantage of the new technology, what the company likes to called as microLEDs. These big screen TVs do not necessarily cost a fortune, either. Han is the President of Visual Display Business, and Das is the Senior VP of Consumer Electronics, Samsung, America.
Israel Takes Offense in Battle Against BDS
Other than BDS South Africa and BDS Chile, the groups named on the list are located in Europe and North America. The final list was worked out in collaboration with the interior, foreign affairs and justice ministries.
The most exciting thing about The Wall is the new MicroLED screen technology that Samsung just introduced, which will probably be used in other devices, including smartphones and tablets in the not so distant future.
Support for HDR10+ is also on offer because Samsung has a vested interest in the dynamic range enhancing standard.
No pricing, or resolution, has been announced, but Samsung says its MicroLED TV will ship sometime this year. Employing a proprietary algorithm for resolution adjustment, it consistently improves image quality, and can "easily transform" any content from any source into 8K high-resolution!
The 2018 smart TVs will also include the launch of Universal Guide - an advanced program guide that recommends TV programs and content based on a user's preferences. Integrating with the SmartThings IoT hub and making navigation of menus easier, Bixby stands behind all voice recognition for Samsung.

Radiohead Suing Lana Del Rey For Allegedly Copying "Creep"
Maybe that's why Del Rey claims to have already offered the band a settlement, one she claims its lawyers have rejected. It's a pretty safe bet that Lana will have to cough up - " Get Free " and " Creep " do sound remarkably similar.
