5 things you need to know about The Wall

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.

AMD's 2018 roadmap: Desktop APUs in February, second-generation Ryzen in April
And for graphics performance, going by 3DMark 11 benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 Pro is around 125% faster than that Intel processor. AMD claims that chips in this line will deliver better performance than comparable 8th Generation Intel Core chips.


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.
