Default Samsung Micro LED

I actually had no idea Samsung had a tech like this in their sleeves and whilst it's interesting that it can do perfect black like OLEDs and has no burn in risk as well as like LCD the potential for massive peak brightness perhaps even more so than OLED.

Sony recently showed off an 8K 10,000 nits monster that seemed to have local dimming available and I'm sure Samsung could probably replicate that with the Micro Led tech BUT it's the "Modular" nature of how it all seems put together that puts me off a bit. It's mainly because you seem to "see" the little modules all stuck together forming the TV but I'm interested to see if Samsung find a way to use Micro LED tech in a more "hidden" way where it looks like traditional screens in all one piece.

I think it possibly still suffers from LCD style motion resolution issues but the tech combined with quantum dots really could beast the flat screen market for even 4K HDR at 10,000 nits within 3-5 years.

I'm always in for some local dining, but as far as the rest of your post, I have no idea.

It sounds a little like Sony's CrystalLED they showed off a few years ago at CES, nothing came of it but it sounded terrific. 1080p set using individual LEDs as the light source, no LCD panel. Perfect blacks.

Samsung's "The Wall" TV looks amazing; it is a 146" micro LED behemoth that will be available for purchase later this year. The price will likely be astounding, too. It is modular. It is shown in this article from CNN along with two other devices.
