Using innovative MicroLED panels, the 2019 version of “The Wall” is an improvement on last year’s version of the TV – which sported a 146-inch 4K display.
The new iteration of The Wall comes in a 219-inch 4K version as well as a more consumer-friendly 75-inch 4K iteration. Samsung has also managed to cut down the thickness of the TV from 80mm to 30mm.
The technology used in these TVs was originally intended for movie theatre screens measuring over 10 metres, and Samsung’s decision to use this technology in consumer-focused devices marks a big move by Samsung in the high-end consumer TV market.
Samsung also announced a version of The Wall that might fit in more homes, with 4K resolution available in a 75-inch size. There’s no word on how much that will cost.
The MicroLED technology in these new TVs won a Best of Innovation award at CES 2019.
“Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category,” said president of visual display business at Samsung, Jonghee Han. “Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”
Samsung has not yet released pricing for these new TVs.
