Now, Samsung is upping the ante in the television world, introducing its 146-inch modular television, dubbed "The Wall".

Samsung's The Wall is the world's first modular MicroLED 146-inch TV. It is a self-emitting TC micrometre (µm) scale LEDs - which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light. "Also, the MicroLED screen excels in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology", Samsung explains on its website. The result, as well as size flexibility, is "brighter white hues, darker black shades and the truest natural colours", claims Samsung.

The MicroLED technology is built to rival that of the popular OLED panels that have dominated high-end televisions for the past year.

At CES 2018, the South Korean tech giant unveiled The Wall.

However, Samsung's 8K resolution Q9S QLED TV is the screen to look out for this year.

Samsung, however, said it isn't just about size and insane resolutions, but its new TV is also about technological innovations that can well redefine the entire TV segment as a whole.

A man was killed and a woman injured in an explosion on Sunday outside a metro station in Stockholm , Sweden, police said. Police also called for witnesses to step forward with any information.

The brand's new TV does not just deliver most impressive visuals, but also provides seamless overall experiences. Samsung claims it would be hard to tell where the screen ends and the wall begins.

There is no information on official release dates nor pricing as of yet, but expect Samsung to reveal more in the coming weeks and months.

The company also promoted Bixby as the brains behind a new generation of smart TVs, and smart home products, under the SmartThings brand.

Apart from The Wall, Samsung teased a QLED 8K TV that it says uses "8K AI technology" to upscale content to the ultra-high resolution.

The lack of native 8K content is another issue to deal, and Samsung has a unique solution for that too in the form of an AI chip that the TVs come equipped with.

2018 will also see the launch of Universal Guide, a program which will automatically recommend content for you according to your viewing preferences.
