Samsung Is Releasing A New 146-Inch TV That Will Blow Your Mind

Samsung Is Releasing A New 146-Inch TV That Will Blow Your Mind

Everyone knows that the bigger anything is the better. This is a fact and it's been proven over the years by monster trucks, swords, centre-backs (even John Terry), countries, trees and Mars bars. Can't think of anything else.

The only exception is satsumas, which are arguably better than their bigger, orangier cousins, the orange.

Samsung knows this fact and as a result is set to release its biggest, bestest, mahusivest telly yet, 'The Wall', which it premiered at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show.

Why's it called The Wall? Because it's the size of one. A big one. Mother may I?

The new tellybox has a display technology known as 'micro LED' which the company says is the 'screen of the future'.

According to the South Korean company, MicroLED is: "... a self-emitting TV with micrometer-scale LEDs - which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

"The screen can adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces."

If all of that sounds unfathomable, that's because it pretty much is but there are two things to keep in mind.

Firstly, it means the TV size is customisable. Technically, all televisions are customisable at purchase, when you choose to buy a big one, medium one or small one, but don't let that bother you. Essentially, you can change its size to suit your house/wall.

Secondly, it's extremely massive - 146 inches is 12.1 foot.

That's nearly two Peter Crouches, one baby giraffe, or a 12.1-foot tree. Just think about that for a second, and marvel at the glory of The Wall.

Sadly, anyone interested in the television is going to have to shell out a lot of money. Though details of the price are yet to be revealed (along with its resolution), the TV will likely fetch into the tens of thousands.
