It’s official: Your TV isn’t as big as Samsung’s “The Wall” television.

Unless you own a movie theater, perhaps? But you probably don’t.

This hulking, 146-inch TV isn’t just huge — it’s also sporting a fancy display technology known as “micro LED,” which Samsung says is at the heart of “the screen of the future.”

So, what’s the big deal? Here’s what we know.

At 146-inches, it’s absolutely, ridiculously, huge.

Samsung isn’t calling this thing “The Wall” for nothing. At 146-inches, it’s more than double the size of most home sets. As someone who recently purchased a 55-inch television, I have a hard time fathoming how much larger a 146-inch TV is.

The image above, released by Samsung, doesn’t really do justice to the size of this screen. It’s literally a whole wall.

More than just super big, Samsung’s “The Wall” TV is a showcase for a new type of display tech from the South Korean company, which it calls “modular, MicroLED” technology.

“Modular, MicroLED” sounds like a bunch of nonsense jargon, right? It’s pretty much exactly that. Here’s a simple breakdown of these new buzzwords:

MicroLED, in the case of this TV, means, according to Samsung: “It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer-scale LEDs — which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.”

What that means for the average human being is that the TV doesn’t need a backlight.

In terms of the TV being “modular,” that means anyone buying “The Wall” can customize it.

“The screen can adapt to serve different purposes,” says Samsung, “such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces.”

Put more simply, “modular” means that you could customize this set to be even larger (or smaller) than 146 inches. For Read More Here
