CES 2018: Samsung and LG unveil the coolest TVs you've ever seen

Samsung unveils 'The Wall', a modular TV with a 146-inch wide screen at CES 2018 CES 2018: Samsung and LG unveil the coolest TVs you've ever seen

Yesterday, Samsung introduced "The Wall", the first-ever consumer Samsung modular MicroLED TV of the world.

The Wall may be too large at 146 inches, but Samsung says it has a bezel-less, modular structure that allows the user to define the actual size of the TV screen and adapt it to their living room size. These microLEDs, as they are called, are much smaller than current LEDs and serve as their own light source. It is similar in that each pixel is its own light so it offers flawless black levels (and doesnt need a backlight like LCD, no color filters either). Below you can see a close up of a conventional LED display panel segment (left), compared to a MicroLED segment (right).

Another reason you might want to hold off investing in 8K TV tech is that there'll be nothing to view on it. Natively, at least.

Samsung also unveiled an 8K, 85-inch TV with artificial intelligence that can convert any video source into ultra high-definition.

Samsung claims it offers the ultimate viewing experience - incredible definition, without restrictions to size or resolution. The new QLED TV categorizes elements of picture quality (black/blooming/brightness) in input sources by scene to produce pictures with richer and more detailed contrast.

Sessions to move the country backward may in fact act as a catalyst to accelerate the timeline for federal changes", Karnes said. However, because hemp is cannabis, it too is illegal under federal law, which makes no distinction between marijuana and hemp.

We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology.

In the First Look, Samsung as well came up featuring the first QLED TV with 8K AI technology. Samsung's promise to upscale content requires a lot of heavy-lifting by the AI before 8K content is delivered to the viewers.

Samsung also touted the TV's adjustable quality, meaning people can expand (or reduce) the size of their screen by adding or removing modules as their needs change.

Not to be forgotten, Samsung's voice assistant Bixby is finding its way to TVs.

The AI technology is created to upscale standard definition content to 8K and uses a proprietary algorithm to adjust screen resolution based on the picture quality characteristics of each scene. The advancements include easier sharing and connectivity, simpler controls for the television, and syncing with other devices. These areas gave guests at First Look 2018 the chance to get hands-on Samsung's most exciting innovations in TV.
