At CES 2018, Samsung launched a 146-inch television, dubbed as The Wall. The company has now announced that the television will be available for purchase starting this August. The price for the product has not been revealed yet, however, it is expected to be up there as one of Samsung’s more expensive products.

The highlight of the TV is its 146-inch bezel-less display, and and its modular capability. 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.

As for the modular aspect, The Wall allows customers to create a TV size based on their needs. Samsung still hasn’t exactly revealed any specific details on how that will work, but reportedly 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 at home. The TV can apparently be adjusted to some more unique aspect ratios like 4:3 or even 1:1, depending on your particular needs.

Meanwhile, Samsung is also said to working on bringing new range of 4K QLED TVs to India by end of May 2018. Electronics unveiled its flagship QLED (Quantum dot Light Emitting Diode) TVs — including the 85-inch, 8K Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered TV, just last week.

The new range of 4K QLEDs make their way to India, after Samsung launched the ‘world’s most advanced QLED’ TV in India, called The Frame, in 2017, and it was taken well by the consumers in the country. The Frame is also touted as a customizable TV that can blend into any room like a photo frame hanging on the wall.
