Earlier this year Samsung unveiled The Wall TV, a screen that measured an impressive 219 inches. Apparently that wasn’t enough, since now they have announced The Wall Luxury – a whopping 292 inches for anyone who is has an extremely spacious living room. And, as the name suggests, the Wall Luxury was designed to transform your entire wall into a TV.
It is “configurable and customizable”, which means you can have it as small as 73 inches with 2K definition, or at the full size with 8K definition. And remarkably, the TV is only a depth of 30mm.
The Wall Luxury will also “upscale” regular TV to near 8K quality.
The high-tech television is also designed to never be turned off, since its self-emitting diodes have a lifetime of 100,000 hours. So when you’re not watching your wall, the TV will go into an “ambient mode” and display curated artwork, photos, and paintings – all of which are “customizable.”
Mark Quiroz who’s the vice president of product marketing for Samsung Electronics America, said, “Throughout the last twelve months, we’ve closely monitored interior design and technology trends to shape the product planning and development of The Wall Luxury.”
“We set out to create a product unlike anything else – matching the lifestyle and taste of those looking for the most exclusive and premium visual experiences in their homes,” Quiroz added.
The box/wall also includes AI technology of some kind that is a bit hard to understand, so Samsung has provided an explanation:
“The Wall Luxury is also equipped with the AI picture quality engine, Quantum Processor Flex. A machine learning-based picture quality engine, Quantum Processor Flex delivers optimised picture quality scene-by-scene regardless of the original source format. The processor analyses image data to automatically calibrate the original lower resolution content to align with the modular screen’s resolution.”
The plan is for the TV to go on sale in July, and it will be globally. However, it’s still not clear how much it will cost. But the safe bet is that the TV will probably be out of reach for most of our budgets. Their 98-inch Q950R 8K QLED has an official retail price of $126,749. Yikes! Let’s hope next Black Friday has some good deals.
