This story is a part of THOSE, where CNET covers the latest news on the most incredible technology coming soon.

If a typical 85-inch TV is too small and a projector too weak – and you have money to burn – you may have an eye for a MicroLED TV. These massive televisions use a new display technology made up of millions of small LEDs that are combined into wall-sized images. In 2021, Samsung started, the pioneer in MicroLED TV for commercial and private use sells 110-inch models for more than $ 150,000 last year, and for 2022 the company is adding a new, somewhat smaller model of 89 inches.

Samsung made some other improvements besides shrinkage. There is a “new chip structure” for better color accuracy and a 10% wider color gamut, as well as better sound with Dolby Atmos and the ability to “project sound to match the movement of objects on the screen,” according to Samsung. The screen is also described as “bezel-free”, so there is no visible edge – just pure image. Other tricks include a multiview mode that displays four different pieces of content at once – from any or all of the four HDMI inputs – as well as an art mode.

The modular design allows you to customize sizes up to 178 inches, although prefabricated sizes are limited to 89, 101 and 110 inches.

Samsung did not announce prices or availability for its 2022 MicroLED TVs. However, compared to the smaller version, it is worth noting that Samsung’s 85-inch QN90A QLED TV costs $ 3,800. And at the other end of the spectrum, competitor LG also sells LED and MicroLED screens with direct display which tops with 325 inches and $ 1.7 million. Samsung is not the only game with big screens for rich guys in the city.
