You didn't give us any useful information that would be needed to recommend a wall mount. There is a LOT to consider when choosing a mount, and there are lots of different types on the market.

No, that's the supposed corner-to-corner diagonal viewable area of the screen and has nothing to do with the dimensions of the bezel.

The TV makers typically round off their screen sizes to the...
