All hail 'The Wall:' Samsung's new 219-inch TV

Adjust Comment Print

There was chatter at CES over Hisense's new ULED XD display tech, which uses a dual-layer panel (essentially a 4K screen with another HD screen behind it) to enhance local dimming and dynamic range - though we're yet to see any models announced with the new tech. The TV's shown at the event were bigger and more innovative than ever before, and hence are likely to come with an expensive price tag.

One of the coolest devices at this years CES is the new LG Signature OLED TV R which features a rollable display. The TV can also transform itself into three different viewing options.

Of course, with a 219-inch television set, your next decision is probably going to be which realtor you will call to find a house that has walls that can fit an 18-foot screen. So, to be a bit more practical, Samsung is releasing a 75-inch modular version with micro LED technology soon. The burgeoning resolution is coming to more and more flagship televisions, even if few people will be able to make use of it with actual 8K content. Who really needs an 8K TV? LG claims that the TV comes with high processing capabilities with 8K upscaling and improved noise reduction. TVs are getting bigger and less expensive.

Samsung also expanded its 8K TV series with the introduction of a 98-inch model.
