Over the last couple of years, Samsung has sold very few)devices that use MicroLED technology. The so-called technology shares many of OLED’s best traits without most of the associated drawbacks.
According to the latest news, now, Samsung is on its way to put MicroLED technology into a more traditional TV form factor with its 110 inches MicroLED TV. MicroLED TV is available for presale from today onwards in Korea. It will launch globally in the first quarter of 2021.
Samsung has not yet revealed anything about the price for the TV but it can be expected that the company will put a much costlier price tag than any of its existing 4K or 8K sets. The TV will come with no bezels or borders. The TV comes with a 99.99 percent screen to body ratio.
The 110 inches MicroLED TV uses micrometer sized LED lights to eliminate the backlight and color filters utilized in conventional displays; instead, it produces light and color from its own pixel structures.
Other features include 100 percent DCI and Adobe RGB color gamut. The output is stunning, lifelike colors with accurate brightness from the display’s 4K resolution and 8 million pixels.
Samsung has estimated a lifespan of around 100000 hours or “up to a decade” for the TV. As of now, it is unknown whether the MicroLED TV comes with an HDMI 2.1 port or allows gaming.
Samsung credits “a new production process derived from its semiconductor business” for helping to make this device a reality. The company is expected to come with a fresh lineup of more mainstream consumer QLED 4K and 8K TVs next month during a virtual CES 2021.
