Samsung unveils ridiculously large 219-inch TV, nicknamed 'The Wall'

CES: Samsung Reveals Massive New 8K TV Samsung goes big with a 219-inch TV

That puts the U9F on par with Samsung's Q9FN QLED, which debuted in 2018 and became one of the best TVs of a year ago. 8K resolution delivers the most realistic pictures that look sharp, vivid, and detailed. At least the screen, that is.

Is this really "the world's most cinematic TV"? The latest one is the biggest 8K TV announced so far.

"With 8K, I could have a 300-inch screen and sit about 10 feet away. We're talking about the cinema experience", an LG spokesperson said.

The 219-inch Wall wasn't the only Micro LED TV announced for 2019.

What else? The rollable OLED television from LG has been turning (lifting?) heads with its stylish unfurling motion and innovative design - even if the OLED panel itself doesn't surpass the other sets in LG's range. "This is our R9 signature OLED TV for 2019", an LG spokesperson added.

Costco is selling a 26-pound bucket of mac and cheese
In fact, due to its significant shelf life, Costco has listed the product under "all emergency foods" on the store's website . If you've ever had a day where no matter how much you eat, you just can't seem to get full, Costco might have the solution.

Basically, it's the coolest TV you'll ever watch.

None of these TVs are available yet.

If you're interested in pre-ordering one of these from Samsung, they're accepting orders here.

Samsung also expanded its 8K TV series with the introduction of a 98-inch model.
