Samsung jumps on microLED bandwagon for smartwatches

Samsung's use of microLED display technology could extend beyond its high-end TVs. 

ETNews reports that Samsung Display created a new team at the end of last year to work on microLED displays for smartwatches. The development of microLED display technology for smartwatches is expected to be completed this year.

The South Korean company currently uses microLED displays in a small number of premium TV models such as The Wall and the recently announced 2023's Micro LED TVs. 

By developing microLED for smartwatches, Samsung will put itself in a better position to equip its own Galaxy Watches with the new display technology, and secure future orders from Apple. The iPhone maker is reportedly planning to launch an Apple Watch with microLED in 2025. The 2024 Apple Watch Ultra is said to have a 2.1-inch microLED display.
