Samsung Unveil 146-inch Modular 4K TV in Las Vegas

However, to solve this Samsung claims the TV uses artificial intelligence to somehow upscale even your crummy local TV news into glorious 8K. Before Samsung, Sony first demonstrated a 55-inch MicroLED TV in 2012 but a commercial product was never launched in the market.

But if you're after the sharpest picture, Samsung has an 8k television with 4 times the pixels of a more common 4k set.

The Consumer Technology Association, which backs the CES, revealed that sales of smart speakers are expected to almost double in 2018, to 43.6 million units in 2018, worth a whopping $3.8 billion. In fact, the manufacturer called it a "world's first" during its unveiling at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Last Vegas. It wasn't exactly clear how many panels used up the massive demo TV on the CES show floor, but the company said that The Wall could reach a size of over 100 inches. Like OLED, micro LED tech creates light and color right inside a TV's pixels themselves and thus doesn't require any sort of large, bulky LED backlight arrays.

Lastly, the new QLED TV categorizes elements of picture quality (black/blooming/brightness) in input sources by scene to produce pictures with richer and more detailed contrast. This is the heart and soul of the new Wall TV from the company and Samsung is promising that it will be part of the "screen of the future".

The screen uses Samsung's new MicroLED technology, which emits its own light like OLED screens do.

Electronics giant (and consummate Pink Floyd fans) Samsung have unveiled - a truly huge 146-inch 4K television called The Wall.

The proprietary LG OLED technology is designed to deliver perfect blacks thanks to its ability to turn each pixel on or completely off

However, LG Display has developed 8K AMOLED TV panels to prepare for further development of high-end TV market.

Considering 4K content is only just taking off, several years after the first screens arrived, it's likely 8K displays will appear long before we're ready for 8K content. Well now it's time for 8K, according to Samsung, which says it will begin selling such a television before the end of this year. Hisense TVs feature Alexa voice control, Sony's latest models support both Google Assistant and Alexa.

"Consumers are telling us it is hard and confusing to try to find what they want to watch", he said. Check out a rundown of the best robots and droids you can expect to see in Las Vegas this year.

Apart from Samsung Knox, Samsung Checkout - the company's payment service for its Smart TVs - has also been certified by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). TCL says the Roku soundbar will begin shipping in late 2018. Unlike most such prototypes, The Wall is actually expected to go on sale sometime in 2018.
