For a while Samsung has been toying with the concept of a gigantic, modular TV, dubbed The Wall. The company launched The Wall as a commercial product, but it's now rolling out a consumer version called The Wall Luxury.

And boy, is it a wall. The Luxury measures up to a whopping 292 inches corner to corner and boasts an 8K resolution. But if you don't have the space for that (or the money) The Wall Luxury starts in a 73-inch model with a 2K resolution.

Samsung hasn't yet announced prices for The Wall Luxury but, well, the clue is in the name here. It's going to cost a bomb, especially at 292 inches. We'll know more closer to its launch date of July.
