Samsung Unveils Ridiculously Large TV Called ‘The Wall’

Do you remember how you felt when you replaced your heavy tube television with a flat screen? Even if it was back in the day when a 25-inch set you back almost $2,000. You felt cool. You looked like you were taking a step into the future.

Flat screen, LED, HD, Super HD, LMNOP, you name it …TVs are getting bigger and less expensive. A 55″ Samsung is roughly $550 now.

My husband and I were shopping and saw an 80-inch for just under $2,000. We’re thinking of an upgrade. But what happens when we feel the 80-inch isn’t big enough?

Try this on for size: at the CES Technology show in Las Vegas recently, Samsung unveiled a massive 219-inch TV. That’s more than 18 feet!

Samsung calls it “the wall.” It uses micro LED technology, which creates a brighter image using less energy than current televisions.

Yes, “the wall” is likely way too big for your living room. So, to be a bit more practical, Samsung is releasing a 75-inch modular version with micro LED technology soon.

The new micro LED television will be much thinner than what we have now, and will be meant to attach to a wall, and not a stand. Samsung also figures that, in the future, there will be a need for several screens to snap together to create a floor-to-ceiling display.
