LG is planning to unveil its first microLED TV in September, according to a report by Business Korea. It is expected to be even larger than Samsung’s 146-inch ‘The Wall’.

Competition in the TV space is about to heat up as Samsung and LG are both expected to enter the microLED TV space. The new display technology will allow manufacturers to create even larger TVs built from modules.

Yesterday, Samsung told Korean media at a gathering that it will introduce its 146-inch The Wall in august. The TV was first unveiled at CES 2018 last month.

Business Korea is now reporting that LG is planning to unveil an even larger microLED TV in September.

- “LG Electronics Vice Chairman Cho Seong-jin visited the company’s TV business unit located in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province on February 21 and told it to prepare micro-LED TVs larger than Samsung Electronics’ The Wall TV by September this year,” the newspaper reported.

The newspaper further claims that the TV will be unveiled by LG Electronics, which is LG’s consumer division, rather than LG Display who is responsible for display technology research and production, and added that “the competition between the two companies is expected to shift from QLED vs. OLED to micro-LED”. Just last month at CES 2018, LG Display showcased several OLED prototypes including an 88” 8K OLED TV and a rollable OLED TV.

The annual IFA show is held in Berlin every September so it is certainly conceivable that LG is planning to unveil its new wonder in the German capital.
