What was first launched as a commercial product is now getting a consumer version, almost a year after Samsung announced that such a model was in the works.
A followup to the company's commercial-focused The Wall Professional from 2018, Samsung's The Wall Luxury launches globally from July. The Wall Luxury, that measures up to 292 inches, was unveiled at the InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Florida. Samsung followed it up by launching a more consumer friendly 75-inch model, and an even bigger 219-inch model of The Wall at the CES 2019. The self-emitting MicroLEDs have a 100,000-hour lifetime, Samsung claims.
Starting at 73 inches for a 2K model, The Wall Luxury will be available in a variety of sizes, ratios and customizable configurations, culminating with a staggering 292-inch behemoth that will offer 8K resolution.
It also has a depth of less than 30mm and a slim, bezel-less and borderless design; a purposeful element put in place by Samsung to allow it to seamlessly blend into the background of whatever it's hanging from. This means that whether you're watching a classic film, your favorite sports team, or playing a fast-paced video game, The Wall Luxury will deliver peak brightness of 2,000 nits and 120Hz video rate.
Created to stay on permanently, either performing TV functions or occupying an Ambient Mode for displaying art or photos, The Wall Luxury's MicroLED self-emitting diodes have a lifetime of 100,000 hours (just over 11 years, then).
The display comes equipped with an AI picture quality engine, called Quantum Processor Flex, to bring optimized image quality scene-by-scene.
The Wall Luxury certainly sounds like an awesome display, but the vast majority of us are definitely going to want to look elsewhere when it comes to outfitting our homes with televisions.
