Thanks to Australian firm C-Seed, we now see the huge, extravagant 165-inch foldable TV that comes with microLED technology. The new M1 165 becomes even more impressive when switched on, all thanks to the brains of Porsche Design Studio. One of the first and biggest concerns anyone would bring up would be the size of this massive TV. But thanks to the hatch into which the TV disappears, it doesn’t take up much space in your living room.
If you’re interested in a more detailed, immersive demo, you should check out the video released by the company. The video shows the magical transformation and self-fulfillment of the M1 165. This is without a doubt the most extraordinary piece of television we’ve seen. Let’s take a look at some specs to determine if the TV is as good on the inside as it is on the outside.
The 165-inch 4K screen resolution comes with a pixel pitch of 0.9 and a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. The viewing angle is 170 degrees and the image spread is never distorted thanks to the HDR10+ color spectrum of 64 billion. The C-Seed M1 165 comes with two 250W long range speakers and one 700W sub. Speaking of connectivity, here we have 5 x HDMI, 1 HDCP 2.2, a 9.2 preamp, an independent sub and an RJ45 network. The power consumption starts at 1.2 kW and goes up to a maximum of 3.8 kW. The total weight of the stands is 1350 KG, with a width of 3.66 m, depth of 99 mm and height of 2.06 m.
Given that you’d be making a hefty purchase with this TV, we believe there’s little information about in-depth display quality or the gamma stats. The product overview and the official product page both contain limited information on quality specifications. Since it is a 4K screen and is 165 inches in size, the individual pixels are almost 1 mm in size. There is stiff competition for the C-Seed M1 165 as LG and Samsung are both focused on moving their premium customers to 8K resolution and doing so in smaller screen sizes.
As many of you had predicted, the pricing is definitely a head spinner. The C-Seed M1 165 costs a whopping USD 400,000. This is certainly a crazy purchase to make when you can get Porsche sports cars for half the price.
