Samsung’s “The Wall” is a customisable modular television with stunning UHD display that you can fit into any size of a wall of other places.

Samsung displayed a 219″ version of the “The Wall” at CES which is controlled by a dedicated tablet that can be used to control the display.

The Micro LED technology is modular, i.e. you can fit them like Lego and make it as large as you want, and it’s borderless, so you don’t see any lines between two modules.

“The Wall” can automatically maintain or adjust aspect ratio so that any size of the video is displayed without problems.

Samsung also unveiled its 8K resolution QLED TV which pushes the display technology to the edge.
