A 146-inch television will soon be available for purchase

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

Over at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the likes of Sony, Samsung and LG have all been showing off their advances in 8K technology, which packs 16 times the number of pixels into a display than standard HD.

It remains just a concept for now, but it shows plenty of promise.

"They are clearly PR fodder for the companies", he told CNN Tech. They're popping up in cars, in refrigerators, even in the bathroom mirror.

Congratulations to all the winners and to be updated throughout the show as we publish and link to in-depth looks at each product. Samsung hopes to release it alongside the other QLED TVs later this year, but couldn't put its finger on a price point just yet. They feature LG's Picture-by-Picture technology, which can divide the long, rectangular signage into four seamless screens for landscape or portrait installations. "You imagine a 65" TV, press a button and it kind of rolls down like lampshade into a tiny box, fantastic stuff. In other words, the TV is comprised of smaller display components that can be added or removed to achieve the desired size.

Among Samsung's various CES announcements were some innovative new TVs. The Samsung Q9S and other models of 8K TVs equipped with AI technology are expected to be launched during the second half of 2018.

Samsung's 146-inch TV is appropriately named: the company calls it The Wall. The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with flawless infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology. It also showcases some of the latest and most advanced TV display technology Samsung has ever presented to the wider world.

According to Samsung, the TV recognizes objects in the image, and then finds ways to restore the edges, create jagged-free images, reduce noise and retain details of the original image.

MicroLED is a self-emitting technology. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting.

The most interesting display I saw may have been a 65-inch OLED rollable display being shown by LG Display.

However, unlike OLED, the Micro LED tech of the gargantuan Wall TV doesn't have quite so many limitations on peak brightness. It will be available later this year.

You can ask the voice assistant to search for movies, play your favorite show, do a Google Search or read you the weather from your TV. Not because we don't want to, but because Samsung simply isn't ready to reveal that information.

Alas, as The Wall is still very much at an early concept stage, there's no official word yet on United Kingdom pricing or a release date.

LG has vowed it will make "the best TV even better" - and, as supplier of OLED TV panels to the TV industry as a whole, it's certainly in a position to do so.
