Last year at CES 2018, Samsung officially unveiled a massive 219-inch MicroLED TV, which was called 'The Wall'. Samsung has yet again returned with a new MicroLED TV at CES 2019; however, the new TV is smaller than the previous one. This year at CES 2019, the Korean tech giant has officially revealed a more practical iteration of MicroLED TV - a 75-inch, 4K TV. Using the same MicroLED foundation as that of 'The Wall', the new TV comes with millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips.

Moreover, the company has also claimed that no backlight is required, which makes MicroLED displays incredibly thin. The company has neither shared any specific release details about the MicroLED TV nor revealed any pricing details. However, one thing is for sure that this TV will not be coming cheap.

The Korean tech giant claims that it is a very challenging job to produce MicroLED displays at scale with each of the RGB sub-pixels required to be placed carefully. Currently, Samsung is the only company that is working on this MicroLED technology. Moreover, Apple is also rumoured to be working on this technology. Samsung has also mentioned that the size of these modules might vary as MicroLED makes way to the customers like the fact these are just prototypes.

As of now, the potential customers and prices for the newly unveiled 75-inch MicroLED TV are still unknown. However, the company has made it official that it would take at least two to three years to make this technology more viable. Additionally, Samsung never revealed the official price of The Wall as per the pre-order page, though it was made available to industrial partners only.
We have seen some excellent products from Samsung in the form of QLED LCD TVs that are ready to go in the market this year. However, the Korean giant is making it clear that it is aiming for the next big thing that others can achieve the same.
