There have been rumors about the first miroled television for consumers for a while, but Samsung has now confirmed that we do not have to wait long for it as Samsung launching microled television. The first Wall-based consumer microled TV should be on the market in 2019.
Samsung launching microled television
At the beginning of this year, Samsung showed the The Wall Television at CES 2018. This model, with a 146-inch format, is based on the micro-led technology. Han Jong-hee, the director of Samsung’s screen department, says that the company will introduce a consumer version based on The Wall in 2019.
Microled technology uses tiny LEDs that are individual pixels and do not need backlighting. The screen consists of different LED modules and can therefore be made in almost any size and in almost any aspect ratio. The big advantage of microled is that the contrast and brightness are higher than with LCD and OLED.
It is not clear what format the first miroled television will have for consumers. It may be a smaller version than 146-inch since a image of a 75-inch version appeared a few weeks ago. In addition, the model has a modular design with thin screen edges and a profile of 30 millimeters.
We expect to see more of the Korean manufacturer during IFA 2018.
