      LG were charging £25,000 for their first generation 77" 4K OLED back in 2016 (the G6). I'd be surprised if this 75" MicroLED comes in lower than that.

      So way, way, waaaaay out of my price range, but one can dream!

      Thanks for the video Phil.

      This looks very impressive, glad they had the smaller 75” on show, odd there was such a spectator distance but encouraging comments on the modular joins from the 219”.
      Aspect ratio is a very nice touch.
      Are we still thinking 4 years away from affordable (AV enthusiasts affordable), 2020 launch?

      Just to be clear the 75" model on show was a prototype, Samsung hasn't announced any timescale yet for an actual production version. So don't go reaching for the credit card just yet.

      This is something I am watching with interest. It would solve the main issue with large screen - 120" plus home cinemas, HDR brightness and the fact if you did get bright enough you would lose any decent black levels. Some come on Samsung make these modular screens available at a sensible price (say less than £20k for a 150" screen) within 5 years. It would also mean you wouldnt need the level of light control or the need to cover your dedicated room in black velvet.. making the room more usable.

      You're right, you can customise a 21:9 screen to suit your room. It would be vastly superior to any projector in terms of HDR, it would include a multitude of other features, and it could even be 8K if you wanted.

      Thank you Samsung, OLED is just an temporary place holder before this beast named Micro-LEDs are taking everything over. No potential burn-ins problems with a much higher peak brightness and the same blacks. I'm especially happy that Micro-LEDs don't suffer from burn-ins which are becoming a problem on OLEDS now more people actually own that technology.

      The full 2019 range will be announced in the spring. I've seen them already and while I can't say much at the moment, I think people will be very impressed.

      The 75” was modular too? This tech is soooo far off production-ready.

      Wow. I just had an eye-gasm. Can't wait. Enough of this faff. Just showcase these TVs only when you plan to make them available to us peasants on that year. thanks

      Yes the 75" TV was also modular. I think it makes sense, you perfect manufacturing a single-sized module, that ensures reliability and allows for economies of scale to keep the costs down.

      I think the fact that they’re keeping you a good distance back from the 75”er suggests the seams would be visible at the correct viewing distance, no? I think the milestone we should look out for is a 1piece, non-modular 75”er. That gets you a size people are currently buying for their living rooms, without unsightly seams.

      If you see Phil video and note Steve comments, they are using blocks...they can shape the tv to any size and shape like lego...
      I don't think size is an issue as much as the manufacturing cost...
      a good 3 years away but still super exciting...

      Yes I did see that part of the vid. I think it was more a showcase of the modularity & aspect flexibility rather than any critical viewing. I dont think it’s mentioned what size that installation was either. I guess we’ll know more pretty soon.

      I think they will launch 2020, but I can't see it being cheaper than their QLED TV range due to the manufacturing costs. But a contender for OLED alternative in the future for sure.The OLED screen burn issue has reared it's head again and Samsung has been exploiting this weakness.

      I think they mounted this in a wall to hide the massive power supply needed. These beasts are going to weigh a ton, or at least lot more than an OLED.

      Even if they could make large sheets, isn’t there an advantage to a tv being modular in construction? I mean, if a whole panel is scrapped because of a small defect, with a modular tv you just remove the module and the rest is useable. I like the idea of having 4 50” TVs around the house, then combining them in the lounge or garden for a 100” screen during a big event like World Cup or athletics. It would also allow 4 4k panels to be combined to make an 8k panel.

      I was hoping they would merge all those screens together as one big TV, kind of disappointed in my own fantasy.

      At least you can get 21.9 tv for those that hate black bars.

      Unlikely, but who knows maybe LG will pull a surprise at its press conference today.

      I'd love that too, that's a kickass solution.

      The thing is, if your 50"er is itself modular then that's a whole bunch of joins in the 50" installation, let alone combining them to make your 100"er. Im speculating here, but Samsung's reluctance to show the modular 75"er at what would be considered a normal viewing distance suggests to me the seams created are going to -vely impact the viewing experience. So there needs to be a single panel 55"/65" solution. They've not yet cracked the 75" as it stands which this is why I'm a bit sceptical in the short term.

      Well its disappointing so far, ok MicroLED has improved the wall, we all know samsung will do a separate event for its new tv line up, that's fine. But opening showing was nothing new, I would have hoped for better. Even the Samsung Q9S what was at last years ces never got anywhere
