South Korean technology giant Samsung has showcased its latest television technology at the ongoing CES 2019. The company has unveiled its MicroLED modular panel that is available in both larger and smaller sizes. In fact, if you were impressed by the 146-inch ‘The Wall’ TV that Samsung showcased last year at Consumer Electronics Show, get ready to be impressed again. This year, the tech giant has unveiled a television that is 219-inches in size.
But it’s not just the size of the television that makes it so impressive, it has some very interesting and useful features too. For starters, you would be able to give commands to Samsung’s new panels via Google Assistant as well as Amazon Alexa. However, for doing this you should have a smart speaker that supports either of the two.
With the 219-inch Wall TV, Samsung has put forward what it can achieve in terms of resolution and sizes using its MicroLED technology. The South Korean technology company also unveiled a MicroLED panel which is 75-inches in size and has support for 4K technology. We personally feel that this television would prove to be more practical for a regular buyer. And needless to say, it will be more affordable too. However, Samsung has not as yet given away the pricing of either of the two products. It has only unveiled them and spoken about their features and specifications.
The company also made a surprise move when it joined hands with Apple in order to offer customers iTunes movies and TV shows via its smart TV app. And as we mentioned earlier, the television will also come with support for voice inputs by Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. But then, for doing this, you must have a device that has support for these assistants, like Google Home or Amazon’s speakers.
Nevertheless, it is a great feature. On clubbing the television with Google Home or Amazon Echo-like speaker, you would be able to switch the device on or off, change the channel, control volume levels and do a lot more just using voice commands. And in case you don’t have a smart speaker, you can use Samsung’s digital assistant – Bixby – which will in-built on the new television by the company.
