Samsung unveils 292-inch The Wall Luxury TV with 8K resolution

Share

The Korean firm has unveiled The Wall Luxury, the latest version of its modular MicroLED screen that can be customized to a variety of sizes.

Although things will clearly look pretty impressive on the screen, Samsung is also boasting that its new TVs have a design to suit any room. Alternatively, a 2K configuration of the TV is available that's just 73 inches big.

At the InfoComm 2019 event in Orlando, Florida, Samsung has unveiled The Wall Luxury line of modular MicroLED screen TVs. Like its commercial-centric brother, it sounds like The Wall Luxury can be expanded by adding additional MicroLED segments. Thanks to the bezel-less infinity design, the screen can be customised with decor frames to blend into the wall it's being installed. Samsung doesn't say how much The Wall Luxury will cost, but it is unquestionably outside the price range of average consumers.

This next-gen luxury version is equipped with Samsung's AI upscaling engine Quantum Processor Flex which automatically optimises images regardless of the original source format.

Samsung also has a standard "The Wall" TV, and it is designed never to turn off.

On top of this, The Wall Luxury is said to offer Quantum HDR technology for a peak brightness of 2,000 nits, as well as a 120Hz video refresh rate, making it ideal for watching sports or playing video games.

Samsung is claiming a 100,000-hour lifetime for the display's LEDs, which works out to about 11.4 years if you leave the display on 24 hours a day - and that's just what Samsung expects, saying "The Wall is created to never turn off". When not in use as a TV, the screen can switch to Samsung's Ambient Mode, turning the massive display into a digital canvas for paintings, photographs and video art. Partners include Harman Luxury Audio and Steinway Lyngdorf for audio solutions; Control4, Crestron and Savant for home automation solutions; and Domotz, Ihiji and OrvC for remote monitoring capabilities.
