During the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, 2 weeks ago, Samsung dropped a 219-inch bomb on everybody there. Their new giant-ass TV, affectionately named “The Wall,” measures a whooping 219 inches, dwarfing last year’s huge model at a measly 146 inches.
At 219 inches, the ginormous MicroLED television is slightly over 18 feet, and, for those of you thinking this can’t possibly be energy efficient, it apparently creates brighter images using less power than other televisions.
According to Samsung, “these transformative TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive Micro LEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce brilliant colors on screen. The Wall 2019 takes personalization to the next level, with modular panels that consumers can position in any size or shape to meet their needs. The next-generation modular Micro LED displays harness self-emitting technology to create elegant, efficient and powerful screens that are liberated from the limitations of existing technologies.”
Sounds great, all I heard is “big-ass TV” and you’re just in time for the Super Bowl.
