Samsung's new QLED TVs may have black levels to rival OLED

"The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience", Samsung said in a statement after the TV's unveiling on January 7.

Samsung also says its modular technology will allow for TVs of customised sizes to be ordered.

Other options for giant TV displays have been shown off at CES this year.

While we were shown "The Wall", a 146-inch MicroLED prototype TV, regular LCD, or more specifically, QLED TVs were missing, instead waiting until March to see the light of day.

It comes with a micro-LED display, which has been introduced as a superior alternative to OLED due to the fact that it offers both deep blacks and bright highlights.

We covered this subject recently in a post on the future of QLED technology (essentially another name for the micro LED tech of "The Wall" TV) and discussed how it might advance enough to replace OLED or conventional LCD displays to become the dominant type of display for most near-future TVs. This is the heart and soul of the new Wall TV from the company and Samsung is promising that it will be part of the "screen of the future".

According to Samsung the TV uses what they call MicroLEDs. The Wall claims to produce 2,000 nits of brightness and this technology, even though it is still emerging is more longlasting than its closest competitor, the OLED. Perhaps MicroLED can get brighter; Samsung hasn't specified yet. It can transform into any size and delivers incredible brightness, color gamut, color volume and black levels.

"Made possible by Samsung's advancements in semiconductor processing techniques and LED technology, the pixel LED modules of The Wall's self-emitting technology are smaller than ever before, and each chip incorporates RGB color", the company wrote in a recent press release.
