Samsung's new 8K TV features AI, can upscale video to 8K

09 January 2018

Samsung unveiled its newest display innovations ahead of the actual debut of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, surprising the audience with a monster 146-inch TV called "The Wall". "We're excited about this next step along our roadmap to the future of screen technology, and the remarkable viewing experience it offers to consumers". The Wall of Samsung is not restricted to resolution or form either, being a "self-emitting" TV having micrometer scale LEDs that are way smaller than present LEDs.

With a name like "The Wall", you expect Samsung's new 146-inch home cinema display to be big and imposing. "Also, the MicroLED screen excels in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology", Samsung explains on its website.

Samsung showcased 2018 Samsung Smart TV's enhanced connection and convenience functions at the First Look event, including Bixby, SmartThings and Universal Guide. It will be globally launched in the second half of this year beginning with Korean and American markets.

Samsung, however, said it isn't just about size and insane resolutions, but its new TV is also about technological innovations that can well redefine the entire TV segment as a whole. Samsung has now announced its new AI technology which will be integrated into its 85 inch 8k QLED TV.

Additionally, viewers can customize sizes and shapes, and can even find pleasure in the adaptive abilities of the TV for other purposes like a wall-size display creation that suits multiple spaces.

Samsung has also created what it describes as "AI Upscaling", and as with today's 4K/UHD displays which can usefully upscale "ordinary" HD to near 4K quality, Samsung will use similar technology tricks to boost 4K to 8K visibility.

Samsung also featured the world's first QLED TV featuring 8K AI technology, which will be launched internationally, starting with Korea and the U.S. during the second half of 2018. The latest AI technology allows content and automatically upscales images or content into 8K resolution regardless of native resolution or method of transmission. The advancements include easier sharing and connectivity, simpler controls for the television, and syncing with other devices.

First Look also highlighted a variety of product zones, showcasing 8K-AI technology, 4K HDR Gaming, HDR10+, Smart TV experience and more. Because the microLED array creates an unfiltered self-emitting display, you'll also get brighter white levels and extra-vivid colors.
