LG to present the largest MicroLED TV at IFA 2018 in Berlin

20 August 2018, 03:45:39

LG to present the largest MicroLED TV at IFA 2018 in BerlinEarlier this year, at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Samsung announced the world's first MicroLED TV called "The Wall". At the end of this month, LG will present the world's largest MicroLED TV at the IFA 2018 in Berlin. The unit will have a 175-inch diagonal size. For comparison, Samsung's Wall has a 146-inch diagonal size. It is expected to be thinner than the 8 cm profile of The Wall TV. Commenting on this, an LF spokesperson said: "It is true that the company has been conducting R&D projects for micro LED TV technology". However, there's no official confirmation about this.

MicroLED panels consist of millions of micrometre (µm) scale LEDs, which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light. Thus there is no need for colour filters or backlight, hence the units are thinner. Still, such panels provide better contrast and offer improved power efficiency compared to existing OLED and LCD panels. As this is a new technology, there are still some technical difficulties and in terms of cost-effectiveness, MicroLED panels will first hit the large-sized commercial MicroLED TV niche. Samsung is already targeting it and plans on releasing next year a premium MicroLED TV for general consumers named The Wall Luxury, which will have a thickness of 3 cm.Source
