If you really hate bezels, and OLED just doesn’t cut it in terms of picture quality, we’ve got good news: Samsung has launched a 110-inch MicroLED TV.
The company has had a MicroLED TV in its lineup before, but The Wall, as it was called, was modular and primarily aimed at businesses. Samsung’s new TV is a traditional, singular unit, more suitable for home use.
MicroLED is widely viewed as next-gen TV tech, inheriting the best traits of OLED and LCD TVs but with nearly none of the disadvantages. Samsung says the new TV has 4K resolution, a wide color gamut, a powerful new Micro AI Processor, and a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours.
Yes, none of that is very specific, but there’s one cool thing about this TV that we can definitely see on product images: it has nearly no bezel. Samsung claims a 99.99 percent screen-to-body ratio, with the bezel and black matrix “completely removed” from the display.
The 110-inch MicroLED TV (that’s what Samsung’s officially calls it; perhaps the name hasn’t been finalized yet) also has a built-in, 5.1-speaker system. The sound system has a cool feature: the TV can track objects moving on the screen, and project the sound to follow the action.
The 110-inch MicroLED TV has been launched in Korea and will become available globally in the first quarter of 2021.
And now, about the price. In Korea, the recommended price is 170 million won, or $155,938. Yes, that much. Yes, we are sorry.
