Samsung has just unveiled a 75in (190cm) TV made of modular micro LED panels at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.

What is striking about the latest launch is that the South Korean consumer electronics giant claims that its TV can change shapes with its revolutionary new micro LED technology — it can go from a square format to a long video strip!

“This screen with transform the traditional idea of a TV,” said Samsung’s visual display division president Jonghee Han, adding: “This screen is customizable and can be placed anywhere in the home.”

The company also showed how these same displays could work together with speaker elements, effectively creating new kinds of home entertainment devices on the fly.

The group is yet to provide pricing or availability information about the new displays.
