The company's latest MicroLED screen has been revealed.
Samsung has debuted a new display model using its modular MicroLED technology. Dubbed The Wall Luxury, the customizable screen is geared toward the luxury consumer market and can be configured in a variety of sizes and resolutions.
"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," said Mark Quiroz, Vice President of Product Marketing for Samsung Electronics America. "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."
Like previous iterations of Samsung's The Wall, The Wall Luxury uses MicroLED technology with individual tiles made of self-emissive MicroLEDs. These MicroLEDs feature millions of inorganic red, green, and blue microscopic LED chips which are capable of producing their own light -- resulting in superior contrast ratio performance and near perfect color. In addition, the screen utilizes a 30mm slim, bezel-less infinity design with a modular construction, allowing users to configure the display in a variety of sizes and ratios from 73-inches in 2K resolution up to 292-inches in 8K resolution.
Under the hood, The Wall Luxury is powered by Samsung's Quantum Processor Flex. The advanced AI picture quality engine uses machine learning to optimize images on a scene-by-scene basis, enabling lower res content to match the screen's resolution. Likewise, the display offers Quantum HDR technology with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits and support for a 120Hz video rate. A customizable décor frame is also included, allowing the screen to better match a user's particular room.
Finally, The Wall Luxury also boasts a 100,000-hour lifetime thanks to its self-emitting diodes, resulting in a display that is designed to stay on. When not in use as a TV, the screen can switch to Samsung's Ambient Mode, turning the massive display into a digital canvas for paintings, photographs and video art.
Pricing for The Wall Luxury has not been announced, but the display is set to launch globally in July.
