Samsung just announced a 146-inch modular TV

The wall has a bezel-less design that Samsung describes as "module-based". MicroLED takes its name from the micrometer scale LEDs that are smaller than conventional LEDs.

Samsung also featured the world's first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the United States during the second half of 2018. Right now, there's still a paucity of 4K video, let alone even higher resolution content.

Pricing details have not yet been announced, and Samsung said that the Q9S will be released in Korea and the United States in early 2018, with more countries being added thereafter. The 8K solution upgrades feature like detail enhancement, noise reduction, edge restoration, and automatic sound adjustment for different content.

The TV is often the centerpiece of the living room, and in recent years Samsung has tried to spruce them up with fancy frames or bigger QLED displays - but the company's newest TV outdoes them all. And Samsung's 2018 Smart TV lineup is set to be compatible with the company's Internet of Things hub, SmartThings, and its voice-controlled assistant, Bixby. It offers a simpler way to control the television and sync with other devices.
