As well as its spectacular size, the TV debuts a new technology and is modular in design.

Samsung's “The Wall” TV uses a screen technology called MicroLED, which could one day compete with OLED ― a technology dear to LG, Samsung's key competitor in the high-end TV market. These MicroLEDs are smaller than regular LEDs and are self-emitting, with no need for a separate backlighting system. They also promise increased power efficiency and a longer lifespan.

The other interesting thing about this TV is its modular design. It is, in fact, made up of a multitude of smaller borderless display modules placed side by side. In the event of a faulty or broken pixel, just one of the smaller panels can be replaced.

Samsung envisages bringing “The Wall” to market during 2018, with a retail price that's likely to be just as impressive as the TV's size.

Also at CES, Samsung is showing off a TV with a kind of onboard artificial intelligence that can intelligently upscale any video to 8K resolution, allowing viewers to get the best out of new-gen displays. This QLED TV is expected to go on sale before the end of the year in South Korea and the USA.
