MicroLED TVs Will Cost 40 Times More Than TOP mini-LED TVs
South Korean tech site ‘The Elec’ gave a new report that Samsung’s smallest size 89-inch MicroLED TV is planned to go for a retail price of $80,000. The larger 114-inch model sums up to approximately $100,000.
When hearing that Samsung was willing to make smaller MicroLED TV’s, we assumed that due to previous high and OUTRAGEOUS prices that the models for 2022 would be a bit more affordable.
But it seems like that was a dream that had no real hope!
Now to be completely honest, even though the rumored $80,000 price-tag seems horrifying, Samsung hasn’t exactly confirmed the official prices to the general public. The tech world usually gets word of the official prices and drops from Samsung around March or April right before the next-generation TV’s drop.
In my opinion, even if the rumored price is off the mark by a little, the ending price will still be significantly more expensive than the present QLED flagship HDTV models. (Like the Samsung QN900B 8K Neo QLED TV).
Why are MicroLED TV’s so much more expensive?
Even while having similar names, there is a slight difference between mini-LED TV’s and MicroLED TV’s.
The mini-LED TVs use LEDs that are 1/5th the size of the ones that are used in normal LED TVs. It infuses the screen with hundreds of extra contract control zones which are used to independently turn on/off sections of the TV.
In MicroLED TVs, the LEDs are 1/100th of the size of traditional LEDs and are also self-emissive like OLED technology. Each LED can be individually controlled, presenting you with the best contrast and brightest found in a TV.
Having that technology built into current day television costs about as much as 10 indestructible spaceships…. Okay maybe not THAT expensive, but definitely more than my wallet can handle!
We hope to experience some of this divine tech this year when we have a closer look at the QD-OLED TV’s that were released this year at CES 2022. The screens combine organic, self-emitting light diodes with the impressive saturation of the quantum dots in order to give perfect black color levels and beautifully immersive color vibrance. If you want another example to compare the effects of this design to, just check out Sony’s A95K QD-OLED TV.
Having a HDTV packed with that much of an advanced touch, gives a stunning result of approximately 200% more color saturation than the normal LED LCD screen, as well as having higher peak brightness and even wider viewing angles than normal OLED screens.
Although QD-OLED won’t be able to show us that peak brightness or color saturation of MicroLED, they are still our best option for getting improved tv quality at only a fraction of the price. That way we don’t have to go into debt trying to get a nice TV to enjoy with our friends and family for the upcoming summer!
