The Wall TV, which is clearly not going to sell mainstream at that 146-inch size, is showing what the future of televisions could offer. These microLEDs, as they are called, are much smaller than current LEDs and serve as their own light source. What we do know is MicroLED "excels in durability and effectiveness", offering the "ultimate viewing experience" without backlight or color filters. The result, as well as size flexibility, is "brighter white hues, darker black shades and the truest natural colours", claims Samsung.
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.
The Wall's MicroLED technology is Samsung's answer to LG's light, thin and efficient, OLED.
The modular part of its functionality refers to the fact that The Wall can be connected to other displays without issue, and surprisingly without a performance impact. Samsung describes MicroLED technology as capable of delivering "incredible" definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form.

"As the world's first consumer modular MicroLED television, 'The Wall" represents another breakthrough, ' Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said yesterday.
Not to be forgotten, Samsung's voice assistant Bixby is finding its way to TVs. Samsung claims it would be hard to tell where the screen ends and the wall begins. For a start, Samsung will only focus on 8K for QLED TVs over 65-inches.
Moving beyond 4K, Samsung has also featured the first QLED TV with 8K AI technology. "Using a proprietary algorithm, the Q9S continuously learns from itself to intelligently upscale the resolution of the content it shows - no matter the source of that content - to gorgeous 8K". In addition, Samsung will launch this year the Universal Guide, an advanced program guide which automatically recommends TV programs and content according to a user's preferences. These areas gave guests at First Look 2018 the chance to get hands-on Samsung's most exciting innovations in TV.
