Samsung starts production of MicroLED TVs with LTPS TFT technology
MicroLED is seen as the next-generation self-emissive display panel after OLED, and Samsung has already demonstrated The Wall MicroLED TV with the new display technology for the first time at CES 2018. The main advantage of MicroLED is that each pixel is composed of actual light-emitting diodes, which can provide better viewing angles, brighter display brightness, and higher contrast ratios. Samsung has been looking to further improve MicroLED technology and expand the production of its panels.
According to The Elec, Samsung has started production of its new 89-inch MicroLED TV, which for the first time uses LTPS TFT glass substrates instead of printed circuit boards, in an effort to reduce costs and improve yields. Samsung’s plans also include new 101-inch and 114-inch MicroLED TVs, which are not yet in production.
Samsung initially aimed to start production of the 89-inch and 101-inch models in May but was delayed by supply chain issues and low yields. While the 89-inch model is already in production, the 101-inch model continues to be delayed for reasons that are unclear.
