Samsung is one of the leaders when it comes to advancing TV display technology. The South Korean company has been touting its MicroLED technology in its ultra-expensive "The Wall," which measures up to 292 inches diagonally. However, most of us mere plebeians don't have enough wall space (or the bank account) to accommodate such televisions in our homes. As a result, MicroLED technology is filtering down to smaller and more affordable TVs from Samsung. The company says that its edge-to-edge TVs will be available to purchase in 110- and 99-inch sizes starting this month. A smaller 88-inch display will launch later this fall, while an even smaller 76-inch model is in Samsung's "future... Read more...
Next week will bring CES 2021, but companies are incredibly eager to show off their gadgets and gizmos early. Samsung is one of these companies which is showing off some new displays this year. They have a few new models and features to go along with the displays, which we will look at below. Samsung Neo QLED If you wanted a new technology that sounds like something between the Matrix and science fiction, this is it. Samsung is introducing a new technology called Neo QLED to its flagship 8K and 4K QN9 models. This technology bumps up the quality of QLED by using Quantum Mini LED technology “precisely controlled by Quantum Matrix Technology and [a] Neo Quantum Processor.” Basically,... Read more...
At CES 2019, Samsung unveiled a more consumer-friendly “Wall TV," which could have made its way to homes. It still packed the amazing MicroLED technology, came in a smaller form factor and remained modular. However, modularity could cause some issues for buying and setting up a screen such as a TV. Now, Samsung is tackling that issue with the unveiling of a 110” MicroLED prefabricated display for “stunning video, audio, and smart capabilities out of the box.” Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, reports that “consumers rely on their televisions for more functions than ever.” For leisure, work, or play, you may find yourself...

Will the next generation iPhone sport an even fancier display than the OLED panels that are found on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max? It's a possibility. Apparently Foxconn, which assembles the bulk of Apple's iPhone products, is extending its investments into microLED technology through three of its subsidiaries, including Advanced Optoelectronic Technology (AOT), Epileds Technologies, and Marketech International. All three have developed and are currently ramping up capacities of parts related to the production of microLED chip, as well as production equipment. While a cursory glance at the name might suggest that microLED is a step backward from OLED, the opposite is actually true. Both technologies... Read more...
A new report is making the rounds that suggests Apple has accomplished a notable first and a break from its traditional method for obtaining displays. According to the report, Apple is developing its own device displays for the very first time, whereas in the past it sourced screens for its devices directly from makers like Samsung and LG. In this instance, Apple is said to be working on building MicroLED displays that will first turn up in the Apple Watch. Apple has, according to sources claiming knowledge of its plans, a small, secret manufacturing facility near its Cupertino headquarters. That facility is making a small number of displays for testing purposes according to these sources. Apple... Read more...
Apple snapped up a small stealthy display maker called LuxVue. Apple buys up smaller companies all the time, so you never can tell just how important a given acquisition may eventually be to Apple’s product line, but this is intriguing because it may allow Apple to manufacture its own displays. Sourcing displays from outside companies can be a difficult and time-consuming process, and having its own display tech in-house could help Apple speed time-to-market on some of its products while also avoiding having to play nicely with other companies such as Samsung. (In case you forgot, there’s some bad blood between the two.) Image Source: concept-phones.com LuxVue makes micro-LED screen... Read more...
