Samsung has made a 'small' 110-inch MicroLED 4K TV for the home
Ahead of its January virtual CES keynote, Samsung has introduced the first member in its 2021 TV lineup: a 110-inch 4K MicroLED TV.
Unlike previous giant MicroLED TVs such as The Wall, this new 110-inch MicroLED TV is a consumer model designed for home use, a promise the company made nearly a year ago. It's a home TV in the sense that everything is prefabricated at the factory, so you can’t snap on more modules to grow its size like the B2B models. It’s unclear if this 110-incher is the largest in Samsung’s home MicroLED lineup, though.
For some background, know that like traditional LED-lit LCD, MicroLED can go very bright, which is great for bright room use and HDR content. Since the super-tiny LEDs can generate their own light and no colour filters are involved, you also get OLED-like inky blacks and very pure colour reproduction. Additionally, as the material makeup is inorganic, they should last very long and have no risk of burn-in.
Here are the key specs/features of this new Samsung MicroLED TV:
- 110-inch, 4K
- 100% DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB
- New Micro AI processor
- 100,000 hours lifespan
- No bezels — 99.99% screen-to-body ratio
- Smart TV features, including Multi View with up to four sources
- Built-in Majestic Sound System with 5.1-channel audio
- Object Tracking Sound Pro
Now available for pre-sale in its home turf Korea, Samsung will bring the MicroLED TV to other markets starting in the first quarter of 2021. In Korea, this next-gen TV costs 170 million won, which is about S$209,000. Ouch!
Update, Jan 7, 2021:
Samsung has today revealed that it'll be releasing smaller 99-inch and 88-inch consumer MicroLED TVs by the end of 2021.
