Back in 2018, Samsung unveiled The Wall, an remarkable MicroLED TV system made up of several configurable modules which needed to be professionally installed, allowing for a sizeable wall-covering display of incredible visual fidelity.
Now, Samsung is taking MicroLED and putting it into a more traditional TV form factor. Today the company announced the 110-inch MicroLED TV, which goes up for presale today in Korea and will launch globally in the first quarter of 2021.
As for the first question that probably comes to mind, yes, Samsung has revealing a price for this enormous TV using the latest picture technology. The new TV will cost a whopping $156,000, in South Korea. And Yes, Samsung did not announce the pricing for other markets.
The 110-inch 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 own pixel structures. It expresses 100 percent 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.
Additionally, Samsung’s new MicroLED TV offers a 4K resolution with 8 million pixels and a 99.9% screen-to-body ratio, and is capable of expressing “100% of the DCI and Adobe RGB color gamut,” with the electronics giant claiming the display “accurately delivers wide color gamut images taken with high-end DSLR cameras.”
Samsung is expected to have a fresh lineup of more mainstream (and still great looking) consumer QLED 4K and 8K TVs next month during a virtual CES 2021.
