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

Antonio Villas-Boas  Business Insider

The Consumer Electronics Show which is going to be held in Las Vegas is often dominated by a huge number of huge new televisions. They're popping up in cars, in refrigerators, even in the bathroom mirror. The Samsung Q9S and other models of 8K TVs equipped with AI technology are expected to be launched during the second half of 2018. But the output is the most varied for years - with each player pushing completely different technologies and Samsung stealing most of the headlines with a 146-inch wall based TV.

The modular technology behind The Wall allows the TV to be customised to individual viewing room needs. The Samsung Q9S is a pretty large QLED TV by itself, even if it can't compare to the aforementioned The Wall, but it makes up for that by rendering content in all its 8K glory.

The 146-inch size might seem random, but it's actually just tall enough to be able to cover most home walls from the floor to the ceiling. It also debuts a new screen technology called MicroLED. This TV has a modular design since it's made up of smaller borderless displays, all of which are interchangeable. And doing so won't compromise the display's quality, according to Samsung. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting. "But the rest of the wall can continue to display other things: family memories, simulated decor, or the avatars of family members watching remotely". LG's AI OLED TVs will also have Google Assistant so users can control them with voice commands.

They're all part of LG's ThinQ concept, too - which at this stage means the ability to learn your watching habits and (for the U.S. and Korea to begin with) direct Google Assistant interactivity.

False Alarm Confirmed, No Missile Threat
But officials soon confirmed that it was a false alarm. "There needs to be tough and quick accountability and a fixed process". The message was sent amid heightened nuclear tensions between the United States and North Korea.

"Consumers are telling us it is hard and confusing to try to find what they want to watch", he said.

The copycat issue is not new as Chinese TV and appliance makers have in recent years sought to draw attention by showcasing copied products from industry-leading companies such as Samsung and LG.

Wenger: Sanchez will only be sold if Arsenal find replacement
Wenger was also asked whether he'd rather play for Mourinho or City boss Pep Guardiola . Certainly not, but there's always a way to find a different balance.

While we'd love to tell you more - what type of panel the TV uses, its peak brightness or any other detail beyond its AI upscaling capabilities - but we can't. For example, you can ask Alexa to search for movies or play Amazon content on a Fire TV.
