Samsung may have to review plans regarding the commercialization of its first MicroLED TVs. The Korean giant has long been offering The Wall, modular displays for commercial installations or luxury home cinemas. At CES 2020 the first cuts compatible with large or very wide diagonal TV formats were announced (however much smaller than the 146 "The Wall). We are talking specifically about 75", 88 ", 93" and 110 "models.
All these products were presented with the stated goal of bringing them to the market during 2020. According to some Korean sources, Samsung's intentions would not have changed, despite the undoubted difficulties created by the pandemic. However, marketing could slip to 2021 due to some problems related to the supply of the necessary components. The Korean newspaper The Elec argues that Samsung Display has not yet started production of the aforementioned parts, those that Samsung Electronics should then use to make the MicroLED screens.
Samsung had expected to complete the whole process by the first half of the year. To cause the delay would be a particular step that would have prevented achieving a satisfactory production yield. We specifically talk about the transfer of microscopic LEDs from a temporary substrate to a flexible circuit. These difficulties would have led to a further increase in costs, already very high for MicroLED displays, going in the opposite direction compared to Samsung's needs (reducing prices is the only way to make future TVs commercially attractive).
Remember that MicroLEDs use pixels made up of three sets of microscopic RGB LEDs: one red, one green and one blue LED. These are no longer screens with a backlight or color filters: MicroLEDs are "self-emitting" and emit light directly. For this reason they can guarantee high brightness and absolute black.
