For a brick wall, you can mount any television of any size. You only have to be sure that you mount directly into the brick and not the mortar. This is because mounting into the brick will provide the mount more secure fitting.
Most interiors walls are usually made from a wooden stud frame and plasterboard attached to it. These studs are strong enough to hold your display, but if you intend on mounting directly to the plasterboard, then you also need to use some plasterboard fixings.
