Samsung The Wall 146-inch TV, 8K AI tech take viewing to the next level

You’ll probably want to remodel your living room to make room for Samsung’s latest, greatest, and biggest TV. At CES 2018, the consumer electronics giant revealed two rather big advancements in its TV line up. And by big, we mean that literally in many ways. “The Wall” is pretty much literally a wall-sized TV spanning 146 inches diagonally and is still marketed as “modular”, while Samsung’s new AI-powered upscaling technology promises to enlarge content of any resolution to near-perfect 8K quality.

Galaxy S8 Oreo Beta ending soon, hopefully final build coming

It’s 2018 already but it’s not yet a happy time for Samsung fans. Although it’s not exactly unexpected, the Galaxy S8, much less the Galaxy Note 8, are still not on Android 8.0 Oreo. Of course, some Galaxy S8 owners have been enjoying the very exclusive club of beta testers, but that club will soon be shutting down in two weeks’ time. Hopefully that means that the final Android Oreo build for all Galaxy S8 and S8+ models is just around the corner.

Samsung detachable Chromebook to have a phone-grade camera

There are just some hardware features on devices that don’t always make sense in the grander scheme of things. Features like second screens on phones, rotating cameras, or high-end cameras on tablets. That, of course, hasn’t stopped manufacturers from banging their head on the wall. And it seems that Samsung will be the latest one to do so. Its still unannounced detachable 2-in-1 Chromebook, codenamed “Nautilus”, is expected to come with very premium features, including a more or less premium Sony image sensor that will probably be rarely used.

Samsung reveals first curved Thunderbolt 3 monitor

Samsung reveals first curved Thunderbolt 3 monitor

The computer monitor battle has been constantly moving from one arena to another. First, it was TN against IPS, then LCD versus OLED. It became a war of megapixel numbers before it became a debate between flat and curved. Now Samsung is bringing that history to the present battleground: input connections. At CES 2018, the consumer electronics giant will be showing off its new, ultrawide CJ791, which it touts is the first monitor to combine QLED, not OLED, display technology, smooth curves, and, most importantly, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
