The new large LG OLED TV can be rolled back into its relatively small triangular box when not in use. This TV has a modular design since it's made up of smaller borderless displays, all of which are interchangeable. This uses a new technology branded Micro LED, which uses individually lit LED pixels, without the need for backlighting. Unlike most such prototypes, The Wall is actually expected to go on sale sometime in 2018.

Samsung won the sheer size game with its 146-inch Wall, a TV capable of reaching such massive scale thanks to its use to MicroLED technology instead of LCD or OLED.

Of course, detail levels looked outstanding too, but the bright picture and vibrant colour palette were by far the standout features here, all powered by Sony's next-generation X1 Ultimate processor. But there is a difference between the two strategies.
