According to industry sources, Samsung and LG Electronics have stepped up their efforts to develop Micro LED TVs, but they have adopted different methods to further strengthen their deployment in the large-size TV field.
After regaining the title of top supplier in the high-end TV market worth more than $2,500 in the second quarter of 2018, Samsung introduced its 75-inch Micro LED TV in the recently completed IFA 2018.
The source said that the 75-inch Micro LED TV is produced by a 30*50 micron micro LED chip display panel, which is expected to be launched in 2019, aiming to compete with OLED TVs in large-size TVs, while LG It is currently another strong competitor in the field.
Leading by LG, a total of 15 TV manufacturers, including Sony and Sharp, are expected to release more than 2.5 million OLED TVs in 2018, more than the number of QLEDs sold by Samsung and other companies.
As a result, Samsung was forced to increase its efforts to develop Micro LED TVs to continue its leading position in the high-end TV market. In response to Samsung's move, LG recently also launched its 175-inch Micro LED TV to demonstrate its strength in the development of Micro LED products. However, sources said that the Micro LED panels developed by LG seem to be aimed at very large display applications, lest these Micro LED TVs affect the sales of their OLED TVs.
In addition, in addition to signing a contract with Sanan Optoelectronics to obtain a stable supply of Micro LED chips, Samsung also received a 30*50 micron Micro LED chip supply contract from PlayNitide.
According to sources, LG is likely to buy Micro LED chips from manufacturers including Epistar and Huacan Optoelectronics.
