CES would probably be incomplete without Samsung showcasing a tech that people can’t afford and the company has lived up to the expectations this year as well. The Korean giant has showcased an upgrade to its “The Wall” which was announced at CES last year.
Just to recap, Samsung announced The Wall at CES 2018 and the TV measured a whopping 146-inches. Now, that would be more than enough for people but if you’re not satisfied then you can go with a 219-inch upgrade to The Wall that Samsung announced today. If that didn’t impress you then this probably will. This year’s upgrade is actually made up of microLEDs which means you can remove panels to decrease the size or add more panels to increase the overall size of the TV. For those who don’t know, MicroLED TVs are based on self-emitting technology similar to OLED TVs, and each chip incorporates RGB color. As a result, there is no need for color filters altogether and can deliver up to 2000 nits of peak brightness (almost double that of OLED TVs), brighter white hues, darker black shades, and the truest natural colors. Not only that, 219-inch The Wall comes with a setting that can convert it to a feature wall so it blends into the surroundings. A total of seven different categories are available to choose from, allowing users to personalize their screen to what best suits their home.
We consulted with interior designers to ensure that a broad range of styles would be represented. New development stages were devised for this product: from conducting historical research that helped us capture the essence of period design, such as Victorian or Georgian style, to testing the angles of shadows by constructing a temporary wall.

Samsung has also revealed a smaller 75-inch TV made of microLEDs. The concept and the tech is similar in both the cases but 75-inch is more practical. The company hasn’t revealed the price of any of their TVs but a fair guess would be more than $10,000. For more coverage surrounding the CES, you can head to our dedicated page.
