At AVPasión we don't usually talk about devices that we don't know if they will arrive in Spain, but The new Skyworth 100A7D television has caught our attention. First because of its size, no less than 100 inches. And second because it is within a range of televisions known as “Wallpaper TV”, that is, televisions that are completely attached to the wall. That is, a concept similar to that offered by Samsung with its The Frame range, since The Skyworth model also has different designs to transform the television into a painting. However, Samsung, at least for now, has not reached these inches.
OLED and MiniLED technologies have allowed manufacturers to create extremely thin televisions. However, the incorporation of the electronic part always adds a few centimeters of thickness, which is why Samsung invented the One Connect, an external connection box so that when hanging the television we will only need one cable connected to it. This allows the television to look like a painting when hung on the wall..
Skyworth 100A7D: a 100-inch “box” with television functions
He Skyworth 100A7D follows a similar philosophy. It's a 100 inch 4K TV which aspires to be much more than a television. It wants to become the most important piece of decoration in the home. The Chinese electronics company has put on sale a model that is clearly inspired by Samsung's The Frame line of televisions, but that offers a higher diagonal than this range from the Korean manufacturer (whose current largest model is 85 inches). .
Like The Frame, the Skyworth 100A7D is designed to blend seamlessly into home décor, with a “paper” display that can be customized. At a technical level we do not have too much data, but we do know that it is a 100-inch panel with 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 1200 nits brightness.
Besides, covers 99% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and supports PWM dimming and MEMC motion compensation. And be careful, because according to the technical specifications, it offers a 288Hz refresh rate, being ideal for playing games and watching movies. On the other hand, the Skyworth 100A7D has passed the TUV Rheinland eye protection certification, which will allow us to use it for hours without straining our eyes.
Like the Samsung The Frame range of televisions, one of the standout features of the Skyworth 100A7D is its integrated art gallery. The television includes more than 200 world famous paintings that can be displayed on the screen. This makes the television an excellent way to add a touch of culture to our home, in addition to solving the “problem” of having such a large “black box” on the wall when we are not watching anything.
According to specifications, The Skyworth 100A7D is also equipped with a powerful sound system, developed jointly with Harman Kardon. This has 11 speakers and a maximum power of 210 W. The TV also supports far-field voice control, so you can control it with your voice.
On the other hand, under the hood we have a quad-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Works with Coocaa 9.2 system, which is a customized version of the Android TV operating system. Regarding connectivity, it includes two HDMI 2.1 portstwo HDMI 2.0 ports, one USB-A 3.0 port, one USB-A 2.0 port, one AV input port, one RF input port, one optical output port and one RJ45 Ethernet port.
What the manufacturer has not specified is whether the television has an external connection box, such as Samsung's One Connect, or a sound bar like the one we have seen in the LG W series models. But what we do know is that the television Skyworth 100A7D 100-inch with 4K screen is now available in China with a price of 17,999 yuan, which would be about 2,300 euros. Will we have something similar this year in Europe? We have to wait to know it …
