CES 2018: Samsung reveals enormous modular MicroLED television you can build yourself

Watch live: Samsung CES 2018 press conference, Monday 2 pm PT

January in the technology world means one thing: the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The goal is to completely do without size, resolution or form restrictions, although for the purposes of the groundbreaking technology's first demo, Samsung settled on a monumental 146-inch 4K setup. It is a self-emitting TV with micrometer (┬Ám) scale LEDs - which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

Until now most TV offerings other than OLED have struggled to offer the same deep blacks, high contrast and super colour at high speed. It can transform into any size, and delivers incredible brightness, color gamut, color volume and black levels.

Samsung has opened the CES 2018 tech trade show with a popular attraction by claiming its new TV could be the future of the television.

As well as the above crowd pleasing huge TV, Samsung discussed supporting TV technologies, important to end users to get the most out of what is often the focus of their living spaces. However, if anyone thought 88-inch for a TV is big enough is now for an even bigger surprise, one that measures almost twice as much while sporting the same resolution.

On Friday, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said the department had received the referral and will review it. Part of the referral is classified, so the precise details and allegations are now not being made public.

Samsung visual display president Jonghee Han said the company's new flagship Wall screen was a "breakthrough" in television technology and could be customised to fit any lounge room.

'We're excited about this next step toward the future of screen technology and the remarkable viewing experience it offers consumers'. Design-wise, the big 8K set (pictured bottom) looks rather similar to the easel-approach adopted by Samsung's S range launched back in in 2013. For a start, Samsung will only focus on 8K for QLED TVs over 65-inches. It will be available globally but will first come to Korea and the USA in the second half of this year.

But Samsung, as first reported by CNET, is betting on something else at CES 2018 for its new TVs: QLED displays - sort of.

You can look forward to Bixby and SmartThings integration into the 2018 TVs as well.

Samsung's new flagship 8K TV uses a "proprietary algorithm" that will upscale lower-res video up to their Super Hi-Vision screen at 8K.
