Will Samsung launch its MicroLED TV this year?

Quote:
Samsung Electronics’ production plan for MicroLED TV is being delayed, raising the question of whether the South Korean conglomerate will launch them at all within the year, people familiar with the matter told TheElec Wednesday.

The company initially planned to wrap up the production of the necessary components in the first half of the year and commercially launch the TVs during the second half of the year. However, Samsung is yet to even began the production of the components as of the current time, the people said.

Subcontractors that aren’t directly involved in the production of the MicroLED display also hasn’t received a time schedule for production, they said.

The biggest obstacle in launching MicroLED TVs has been the transfer process and pricing. Micrometer-sized LED modules need to be transferred from their temporary substrate to the flexible circuit board.

Though Samsung claims its MicroLED uses micrometer-sized LED, it is not smaller than 100 micrometers that is required for the designation, but rather, it is between 100 micrometers and 200 micrometers in size, which is technically a MiniLED. Nonetheless, MiniLED displays also require a similar transfer process.

Defects caused during the process is usually supplemented by a repair equipment.

However, the yield rate for Samsung’s MicroLED is reportedly so low that even the use of repair equipment is insufficient to solve the production problem, the people said. Having a high yield rate is crucial to lower the price of the finished product. The price of Samsung’s MicroLED currently range between ten thousand dollars to up to a hundred thousand dollars.

Though Samsung has set its MicroLED TVs as a higher tier TV than its current premium QLED TVs, pricing still remains the most important factor for the TVs to be commercially viable.

A Samsung spokesperson said the company remains on track to launch its MicroLED TV in the second half of the year.

According to TrendForce, MicroLED and MiniLED needs to be under US$6,000 to be competitive in the market. Transfer process technology must be stabilized and the production yield rate needs to reach 99.999%, the research firm said.

At CEO 2020 in January, Samsung displayed four new MicroLED TVs aimed at the home, which came in 75, 88, 93 and 110 screen sizes. It also showed off 150-inch and 292-inch models aimed at businesses. Han Jong-hee, President of Samsung’s Visual Display business, said it planned to launch the models in Europe and the US in the second half of the year.

Earlier this year, Samsung added Taiwan’s Epistar as one of its MicroLED chip suppliers. It has been using Taiwan’s PlayNitride and China’s San'an Optoelectronics as LED suppliers.

Omdia: Market for MicroLED Displays to Soar Over Next Seven Years

Quote:
LONDON—The market for micro light-emitting diode (microLED) displays may be negligible at the moment, but one researcher thinks it will quickly ramp up over the next seven years.

U.K. research firm Omdia predicts that global shipments for the displays will jump to more than 16 million units by 2027, led by smartwatch and television markets. MicroLED displays for smartwatches will exceed 10 million units by then, while shipments for the TVmarket will grow to more than 3.3 million.

Definitely have my eyes on MicroLED but tbh, i'd like to see them find a way to replicate CRT or Plasma like motion instead of LCD style Sample and Hold. I don't know if that will happen but eventually there's probably going to be another technology to replace it down the line.

I suppose the "perfect" TV is some time away but hopefully for 2D images we reach that utopia within the next 3 decades or so of innovation from all the major players working on the next best tech.

MicroLED will be the next new tech. It offers the brightness of an LCD, the blacks of an OLED and it uses less electricity than either of those two techs. That checks all the boxes for an evolutionary tech. It's a big step up so it borders on revolutionary.

IMO it will be the next TV tech for at least the next 15 to 20 years. TV techs don't change that often. Too expensive to do so.

I’m ready to review one if it’s available in 100” or higher.

Anyone guess how long after they bring these to market it will take for them to arrive at reasonable prices? I believe this is the next gen tech but it will take years for it to come with a reasonable price.

When it is available at 100” for $2000, I’ll be ready to buy.

How does the technology maintain its source screen format and resolution when downsizing from 146 inches to say, 88 inches?
