Called "The Wall", the TV uses a technology called micro LED, which creates a brighter image using less energy than current televisions.

Tech giant Samsung upped its game this year at the CES show in Las Vegas by unveiling its massive, 219-inch TV called "The Wall". However, the company was able to shrink the TV down to a "more home-friendly" 75-inch, modular version.

Using new technology that uses less energy that televisions that are now in use, "The Wall" is actually made up of modules that allows owners to configure the set however they choose.

Samsung has yet to provide the cost for its new TVs. The modular pieces with the help of which such a big screen is built don't seem to be visible if one is standing about 6 feet away. The television comes in at 98 inches and 8K QLED resolution, giving it more than 33 million pixels.

Last year Samsung released the first 85-inch 8K QLED TV, which goes for a cool $15,000. Samsung hasn't yet quoted any price for The Wall.
