The Consumer Electronics Show is officially underway, and Samsung has brought out the big toys. On the floor of Las Vegas’ annual trade show, the technology company revealed huge TVs that take up the entire wall.
Samsung’s new 292-inch TV filled up a display called “The Wall.” According to GameSpot sister site CNET, the TV is “as bonkers as you’d imagine.” While Samsung hasn’t explicitly stated the 292-inch TV’s resolution, a smaller version of the TV–which stands at 150 inches–runs at 8K. It’s said the smaller TV uses the same modules as the 4K 75-inch TV Samsung debuted at CES 2019, so it’s possible that the bigger one may have an even better display.
Samsung gave a brief statement about the technological advancements, like those in MicroLED technology, that have allowed these massive TVs to come into existence. “New advancements for 2020 have allowed for larger-scale production of fixed screen sizes, including new 88-, 93-, 110- and 150-inch sizes.”

Gigantic TVs aren’t the only piece of tech Samsung revealed at this year’s CES, which runs until January 10. The company also showed off a new virtual keyboard that uses a phone’s camera to track your finger motions. While the keyboard is only a prototype for now, there’s potential for it to be used with mobile gaming.
