Samsung Unveils Modular Micro LED Technology

Samsung's modular displays work on the same principle as stadium scoreboards, where the pixels are made up of LEDs.

Samsung hasn't confirmed the pricing and availability information for the new Q900 QLED series but you can bet that it's going to be expensive, particularly the 98-inch model. Because each tiny LED can be turned on and off individually, the bright colors are brighter, and the deep tones are deeper since there is no need for a backlight.

Samsung first showed off MicroLEDs at last year's CES with The Wall, a 146-inch TV.

Why it matters: Samsung's modular Micro LED display technology is a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award victor, and rightfully so.

The company stated at CES that it will still be several years before Micro LED hits the market, so no price is yet on the horizon.

"For decades, Samsung has led the way in next-generation display innovation", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.

Micro LED technology is unique for a couple of different reasons. So this time around, the 75-inch model is a home-friendly product with 4K Micro LED technology.

Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customise it to fit any room or space.

"Though first introduced in a 146" model past year, Samsung is now bringing its MicroLED tech to a more mass market friendly screen size. OLED panels must be manufactured in complete sections like LCD panels and are unfeasible to manufacture in very large sizes, while MicroLED modules can be scaled and assembled in sections to support much bigger screens. Moreover, no matter what size the display is in - the Micro LED technology can optimize the content, scaling itself to increase the resolution with more modules while keeping the pixel density constant. The result is a seamless, stunning infinity pool effect that allows the display to elegantly blend into any living environment.
