Samsung’s 146-inch Modular MicroLED TV – The Wall – is a spectacular response to OLED.The MicroLED technology eliminates the need for colour filters or backlight, unlike current LCD/LED screens, which suffer from distracting backlight in dark scenes.We’d love to see how its black levels perfrom against an LG OLED in person but the signs are good.“As the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED television, ‘The Wall’ represents another breakthrough,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.”It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, color gamut, color volume and black levels.”We’re excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers.”Samsung claims MicroLED has a long long life, including luminous efficiency, and power consumption.

8K Picture Quality using AI

This needs a deep dive into 8K territory but for now Samsung has revealed the world’s first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology that upscales standard definition content to 8K resolution.This is a mighty effort because most TVs struggle to improve SD to 4K level but I get their thinking here.It employs a proprietary algorithm to adjust screen resolution based on picture quality characteristics of each scene, to continuously improve picture quality.This 8K solution maximizes the viewing experience through several new features. These include detail enhancement – to upgrade standard definition content; noise reduction; edge restoration function – which more clearly outlines on – screen objects; and automatic sound adjustment for different content, such as sports events or music concerts.It will launch internationally, starting with Korea and the US during after June.

Upgraded with Bixby and SmartThings

Bixby, Samsung’s answer Google Assistant and Siri, will enable easier interaction between the TV and its users.This will likely allow for a more conversational chat with your TV, similar to Apple TV.SmartThings is Samsung’s IoT platform hub and it offers a simpler way to control the television and sync with other devices.
