A 146-inch television will soon be available for purchase

The diagonal size of this behemoth of a TV is 146 inches.

But at CES 2018, the annual tech show happening this week in Las Vegas, manufacturers are still trying to generate buzz for their lineup of TVs coming later this year.

"We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

At achieving this latter PR stunt, The Wall succeeds wonderfully. Brand new designs from Samsung included an 85-inch 8K model, the Q9S Series.

So what exactly are these other technologies?

Because each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED has the potential for infinite contrast, just like OLED TVs. While that phrase sounds like typical PR/marketing hyperbole, we are actually inclined to trust Samsung's diagnosis in this case.

It says the device is its first-ever MicroLED television for consumers. This means that the TV display can be made smaller if required. This can be a problem for OLED screens as, unlike LCD displays which have own backlight, the light for an OLED screen is created by the pixels themselves - which, in the case of an 8K display, are tiny. Perhaps MicroLED can get brighter; Samsung hasn't specified yet. Moreover, since each chip incorporates RGB colour, there is no need for colour filters either and the panel is able to deliver a peak brightness of 2,000 nits along with darker blacks. In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the ideal new TV as we've seen so far from any brand.

Another cool feature of the Wall is that it can be customized to even larger sizes.

CNET recommended the two products as the "Gorgeous TVs of CES 2018", while TechRadar gave its Best in Show award to Samsung's The Wall TV. Companies like LG and Samsung were some of the biggest players in the event but Amazon, Asus, Acer and many other brands including those that make popular PC peripherals also made their presence felt in the event. We're not expecting this giant's price tag to even remotely fit any ordinary home theater budget.
