The Wall is possibly the first large television from this or any brand to, supposedly, come equipped with a technology called modular Micro LED, in which LEDs on the display can be lit up individually with colors appearing more vibrant than ever before and with ideal infinite contrast due to a complete lack of backlight technology. Samsung has broken through the problems faced by the industry when it comes to such large screen sizes. For the uninitiated, the pixels on a MicroLED module are significantly smaller than a conventional LED display.

The micro-LED display will be able to allow a bright picture without a backlight due to its self-emitting LEDs. This new TV is more of a technological showcase than a marketable commodity at least for the time being.

Samsung's decision to bet on micro-LED puts it in direct competition with rivals that have opted to go with OLED displays.

Unlike traditional LED-based LCD TVs, which use a liquid crystal layer and an LED backlight, MicroLED uses an array of millions of individial, tiny LEDs to create the image.

"But maybe Samsung has made some breakthroughs on multiple placement [at once]".

Gray added that it is likely to appear in very expensive devices despite being introduced as a consumer product. The name of the TV itself, however, is entirely appropriate: The Wall. While that phrase sounds like typical PR/marketing hyperbole, we are actually inclined to trust Samsung's diagnosis in this case.

Beyond saying it would ship this year, no pricing or availability for MicroLED was announced.

Samsung promised that its next generation of smart TVs would be more intelligent than ever before, thanks to the inclusion of the firm's voice-activated assistant Bixby.
