Samsung unveils the future of displays at CES

Samsung Electronics has introduced its latest innovations in modular Micro LED display technology during its annual First Look CES event at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The new Micro LED technology designs featured at the event included: A new 75-inch display, a 219-inch The Wall, as well as various other sizes, shapes and configurations for a next-generation modular Micro LED display — a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award winner. 

“For decades, Samsung has lead the way in next-generation display innovation,” said Jonghee Han, president of visual display business at Samsung Electronics. “Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”    

Featuring self-emissive technology and modular capabilities, Samsung’s Micro LED displays claim to deliver unparalleled picture quality, versatility and design. These transformative TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive Micro LEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce brilliant colors on screen.

At last year’s CES, Samsung introduced Micro LED by unveiling The Wall, a critically acclaimed, award-winning 146-inch Micro LED display. Due to the technical advancements in the ultra-fine pitch semiconductor packaging process that narrow the gap between the microscopic LED chips, Samsung has been able to create a 4K Micro LED display in a smaller, more home-friendly 75-inch form factor.
