Samsung's modular displays work on the same principle as stadium scoreboards, where the pixels are made up of LEDs.
Why it matters: Samsung's modular Micro LED display technology is a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award victor, and rightfully so. As a result, there is no need for color filters altogether and can deliver up to 2000 nits of peak brightness (almost double that of OLED TVs), brighter white hues, darker black shades, and the truest natural colors.
"For decades, Samsung has lead the way in next-generation display innovation", said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
MicroLED is Samsung's new display technology, based on a heavily miniaturized version of RGB light-emitting diode (LED) arrays used in very large commercial displays. "Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities". So this time around, the 75-inch model is a home-friendly product with 4K Micro LED technology. First and foremost is its modular nature which allows users to create virtually any screen size to meet spatial, aesthetic or functional needs. By adding Micro LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire.
It rises and falls into the base in a similar fashion to a auto window, and - should you prefer - the screen can also be partially rolled down and used to display other content, such as a clock or the weather. Moreover, no matter what size the display is in - the Micro LED technology can optimize the content, scaling itself to increase the resolution with more modules while keeping the pixel density constant.
Finally, because Micro LED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules - even when you add more. The new display tech supports following aspect ratios - 16:9, 21:9 and even unique 32:9.
