Checking out Samsung's MicroLED and 8K QLED TVs

Checking out Samsung's MicroLED and 8K QLED TVs

Korean, Japanese and Chinese TV makers usually use CES as a launch pad for the coming year and 2018 seems to be no different.

In addition to the customizable Open Frame LG OLED displays demonstrated at CES, the 2018 family of LG OLED commercial displays includes jaw-dropping Wallpaper and Wallpaper-In-Glass models and innovative video wall units, as well as Dual-View Flat and Curved Tiling models.

Samsung Electronics launched "The Frame" lineup previous year. Thanks to OLED technology's unique ability to turn each pixel on and completely off, LG OLED displays bring colors to life like never before while creating an infinite contrast ratio optimized for high-dynamic range content.

So with all this on the horizon, should you hold back on buying a 4K TV right now?

The display can also be put in a position with a 21:9 ratio, which is ideal for watching movies.

Considering 4K content is only just taking off, several years after the first screens arrived, it's likely 8K displays will appear long before we're ready for 8K content. Fortunately, that isn't the case thanks to Samsung's special MicroLED tech doing the heavy lifting.

This MicroLED technology is said to be a better alternative to OLED because it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights.

Samsung's 146-inch TV is appropriately named: the company calls it The Wall.

Samsung's The Wall is entirely bezel-less and because of this, the firm says, the screen can be made to whatever size you see fit.

More impressive, though, is the fact that Samsung's set is modular.

The 8K up-conversion is, likely, one small step on the path forward for TVs. Hisense was really pushing these, and especially its Laser TV line that uses laser lights and TI's DLP technology.

Ranking in at a world's first 88 inches television.

"Just like 4K in the past, 8K television are the technology of the future". But I was interested to see a couple of vendors, such as Stream TV and Changhong (working with technology from MirraViz), pushing glasses-free 3DTVs.

The technology underlying The Wall is quite interesting. Most recently, at IFA 2017, Samsung unveiled The Frame which lets an aesthetically conscious TV owner hide their TV in plain sight, disguising it as a painting or a piece of art.
