LAS VEGAS: A giant 146-inch called “The Wall” was announced by tech-giant Samsung at a technology show in Las Vegas.
It comes with a micro-LED display, which has been introduced as a superior alternative to OLED due to the fact that it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights.
The micro-LED display will be able to allow a bright picture without a backlight due to its self-emitting LEDs.
It is difficulty to manufacture micro-LED screens because because the LEDs as they are to be individually placed onto a layer by machines.
Analyst Paul Gray said, “You have millions for a single display. But maybe Samsung has made some breakthroughs on multiple placement.”
Gray added that it is likely to appear in very expensive devices despite being introduced as a consumer product.
The price has not been unveiled.
