It’s exhausting to inform from the picture if the TV on the billboard is The Wall or a special TV, however Samsung advised journalists on the Superior Show Summit in Hollywood that it has plans to debut a couple of 8K TV in 2018, together with one which shall be obtainable in the usual 65-, 75- and 82-inch sizes.
