Want a big TV? Think The Wall
IMAGINE a television that lines your entire lounge room wall. Plus the wall next to it. Or maybe the window.
Samsung is making that a reality with the unveiling of an enormous 219-inch The Wall television.
The jaw-droppingly huge display comes in at more than 5.5 metres wide.
Samsung used the Consumer Electronics Show last year to unveil the first iteration of The Wall, at 146 inches. The modular microLED television is bezel free and can be customised by adding or removing modules.
Alongside the supersized Wall, the modules have also gotten a makeover this year and were the major focus of Samsung’s First Look at CES.
The company has labelled microLED as the next major leap in ‘display’ technology, moving away from labelling the module as a television.
Samsung said technical advancements in the microLED display allowed them to create a new 75-inch module display, which is more home-friendly than the bigger sizes announced last year.
President and head of visual display business Jonghee Han told media Samsung saw the television as the hub of the home.
The company has also hinted at an Australian release.
A spokesperson said Samsung Australia was currently assessing when to launch this product locally and details on availability for Aussie TV fans would be released at a later date.
Samsung also announced a 98-inch 8K television.
