Samsung to launch 75" microLED TV next year - rumor

18 Sep 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung is expected to launch a 75-inch microLED TV with 4K resolution next year, according to a Korean report by ETNews. The TV was showcased in a private room at IFA 2018.

75-inch microLED TV

At IFA 2018, Samsung was once again showing off its 146-inch ‘The Wall’ based on microLED display technology. Behind closed doors, the company was also secretly demonstrating a prototype 75-inch version, according to Korean media.

The 75-inch TV should be able to better fit into a living room environment. Samsung is currently focusing on establishing mass production tools, according to ETNews. The four times smaller screen has the same 4K resolution as the 146-inch version, meaning that the microLED pixel chips must be reduced to a quarter of the size, which is a challenge.

Some industry observers have starting referring to Samsung and LG’s 100+ inch prototypes as “miniLED displays”, arguing that the pixel pitch is too high to qualify as microLED. For the 75-inch version, Samsung is believed to be partnering with Taiwan’s PlayNitride to develop smaller microLED chips. Samsung has an ownership stake in PlayNitride. The 146-inch version was developed in partnership with China’s San’an Optoelectronics.

This is still a rumor but it is a strong one. At CES 2018, Samsung received an “Innovation Award” for the “2018 Samsung 75-inch S9, the first consumer micro LED TV”. Only the 146-inch version was showcased at CES. Samsung also posted a picture (above) of a much smaller microLED TV on Facebook.

The report notes that there are still significant production challenges to overcome. Samsung has promised to launch a consumer version of ‘The Wall’ next year but it will be expensive. At IFA, FlatpanelsHD heard that the professional version currently carries a significant six-figure US dollar price tag.
