Samsung Electronics announces the launch of the 110 MicroLED TV, the new next-generation television which is all set for presale starting today in Korea. With the demand for larger screens on the rise, the 110-inch MicroLED is like no other. Samsung has managed to put the MicroLED technology in the form of a TV and that in itself is impressive.
The 292 inches MicroLED TV’s display was first introduced as ‘The Wall’ back in 2018. The President of Visual Display Bussiness at Samsung Electronics Jonghee Han said that he was very thrilled to bring the 110 MicroLED TV into the commercial market and said, “As consumers rely on their televisions for more functions than ever, we are incredibly excited to bring the 110” MicroLED to the commercial market,…Samsung MicroLED is going to redefine what premium at-home experiences mean for consumers around the world.”
The 110 MicroLED TV is prefabricated which is why it offers unique and remarkable features of audio, video, and smart capabilities, unlike any other LED TVs. This ultra-large TV promises its customers an extraordinary experience. The 110 MicroLED is said to be a system of configurable modules that can be installed professionally.
This new technology TV is going to be launched globally in 2021. However, Samsung has sold this 110 inch TV to very few rich customers.
Samsung MicroLED TV: Specifications and Features
The most noteworthy feature about the MicroLED technology is that it produces ‘lifelike’ colors and provides a live experience. The MicroLED display has 4K resolution and 8 million pixels. The picture quality is realistic and vivid delivering an impressive 4K HDR content.
“With Samsung’s latest engineering innovations, the 110’’ MicroLED uses micrometer-sized LED lights to eliminate the backlight and color filters utilized in conventional displays. Instead, it is self-illuminating—producing light and color from its pixel structures. It expresses 100% of the DCI and Adobe RGB color gamut and accurately delivers wide color gamut images taken with high-end DSLR cameras. This results in stunning, lifelike colors and accurate brightness from the display’s 4K resolution and 8 million pixels.”
As compared to the OLED the MicroLED is going to be more sustainable which means it will be more durable for the long term as an estimation of 100,000 hours or a decade is expected. Unlike the OLED the MicroLED is also expected to be less prone to burning in.
Other smart TV features of ‘The Wall’ include the Multi-View feature which allows the viewers to split the screen to 55’sized different sources of content and allows the connection for multiple external devices allowing them to watch many different channels, genres, and video games.
Besides providing extraordinary visuals the audio also is as impressive. There are no external speakers and has an embedded majestic sound system that provides 5.1 channel sound that will give the viewer an almost real-life sound experience. Other than that they have other stunning audio features, “And its Object Tracking Sound Pro feature identifies objects moving on the screen, and projects the sound to follow the action — so when you are watching an action movie and an airplane flies overhead, it will feel like its engines are roaring above you.”
The audio and visuals of the MicroLED TV are on another level and will set new boundaries for the displays in television history. This marks the beginning of the next big enhancement for display.
Samsung MicroLED TV: Price
The price of the 110 inches MicroLED TV which is the latest technology TV is, needless to say, stands at a very high price. The current price of the 110 MicroLED TV in South Korea is around 170 Million Won (Rs.1,15,09,812.60). The price is immensely high and the Executive Vice President Choi Yong-hoon pointed out that the price for the LCD TVs was also notably high when it first came to the market.
Samsung is now looking towards mass-producing the MicroLED TV, and in 2021 different sizes of the MicroLED TV – 75, 88, 93, 110, 150, and 292-inches will come to the markets.
The price for other markets has not been announced by Samsung as of yet but will be announced within the first quarter of 2021. The US and the European markets have shown much interest in this model and will have it in their markets by the first half of 2021.
The 110 inches MicroLED TV will remain costly for a good amount of time as it will take time for other companies to produce televisions with the same technology and build such an ecosystem, there might come out a technology that is cheaper and more reliable. The affordability might be a hindrance in the market however still making it possible for other companies or competitors to come up with a smarter TV with a much reasonable price. The demand for MicroLED TV regardless of the price will remain dominant in the case of television display technology and will serve the affluent in the coming years until the next best display technology is introduced.
