CES 2018 is yet to kick start, but brands have already started making their announcements. Samsung is set to host a press conference on January 8 at 2:00PM PT (January 9 3:30AM IST), and ahead of the conference, it has unveiled a giant TV called “The Wall”. The highlight of this TV is that it sports a 146-inch bezel-less display, and is modular too.

The Wall uses a new display technology called MicroLED that rivals OLED. Each microscopic LED can emit its own light, and does not require backlight. Samsung says, that the display is bright, creates deep black and lush colors that are usually reserved for OLED sets, The Verge reports.

The TV comes with a module-based bezel-less design, which will allow customers to create a TV size based on their needs. While Samsung hasn’t revealed any specific details on how it will work, the publication quoted Samsung saying, “The modular screen can be used to create a wall-sized display, or simply let consumers increase their traditional screen size to suit a new room in the home.”

For now, The Wall is just a concept, but Samsung has plans to commercialize it. The company has also promised to offer more details sometime in the spring, when the ‘global launch’ takes place. Whenever Samsung plans to bring The Wall to the market, one thing is for sure, buying one is going to be an expensive affair, aimed at home theater installations.

Samsung has also announced the Notebook 7 Spin with faster processors and fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication using Windows Hello. The new series comes with 8th generation Core i5 processor, paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD storage. Samsung also says that the Notebook 7 Spin comes with improved battery life that can last an entire day on a single charge.

With USB Type-C, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity options, it comes with a 13.3-inch 1080p display, with support for Active Pen stylus, which will be sold separately. The Notebook 7 Spin will go on sale in first quarter of 2018.
