Although today is the first official day of CES, the largest consumer technology fair that is held every year in Las Vegas, during the previous days, some greats such as LG, Samsung or Sony, have taken advantage of the previous days to present some of his most interesting proposals, proposals that in most cases we cannot pay with our salaries.
In the television sector, LG has presented its proposals betting on OLED technology, but Samsung had not commented on the matter. At least until yesterday. Samsung's bet on television is called The Wall, a gigantic 146-inch television with 4k resolution.
Unlike LG, who is betting heavily on OLED technology, Samsung is betting on the use of panels with MicroLED technology, which makes it possible to eliminate rear backlighting, since each of the LEDs that are part of the panel has an autonomous capacity of light. But also The Wall, is the first modular television to hit the market, which will make it possible to make the television larger or smaller for adapt to the needs of users without losing quality and image at any time.
While it is true that this technology is not superior in quality to OLED screens, Samsung has tried to do everything possible to match, or at least come close, both in color quality, brightness, viewing angles, black levels ... The advantage that this type of panel offers, compared to OLEDs, is that they are cheaper to manufacture, which added to the versatility it offers us, it can become an option for the future that is more than interesting for many users or businesses that need this type of screen without having to invest an arm and a leg.
As usual, the Korean company has not offered additional information about the price of the modules or when it plans to reach the market, so we are going to have to be vigilant if we want to have a cinema screen in our home without having to resort to a projector, like the one offered by LG and which we talked about a few days ago in Actualidad Gadget.
