SAMSUNG HAVE UNVEILED A MASSIVE TELEVISION THE SIZE OF A WALL
Written by Gavin on 19th January 2021
Anyone feeling that their 55-inch LED TV just isn’t cutting it anymore may want to take a look at what Samsung just unveiled.
The South Korean technology giant is putting the finishing touches on a 110-inch monolithic slab of a telly that basically takes up an entire wall.
It’s being shown off virtually as part of the Consumer Electronics Show 2021 and a few sites are reporting it will cost $159,000 (£117,000).
Why? Well, rich people are apparently stuck at home just like the rest of us and it seems the TV set is having a bit of a boom time in 2020 and 2021.
With most people exercising, working and socialising in their homes, they have rediscovered the value of TV according to Samsung.
Hours logged on streaming services and online gaming have both rocketed up over the last twelve months alongside other TV uses.
Samsung’s creation uses a technology called microLED which has illuminating pixels combined with multi-coloured miniature LEDs.
This leads to an accurate picture without the need for backlighting.
It is also fitted with a micro AI processor that can optimise the picture quality in real-time while you watch your favourite show.
There’s no word on any kind of release date yet, but Samsung says it will be
available sometime in the first quarter of this year.
