QLED TV and OLED TV Continue to Compete in CES

Before Samsung, Sony first demonstrated a 55-inch MicroLED TV in 2012 but a commercial product was never launched in the market.

However this isn't the real point of Samsung's big new HDR 4K TV and its 146 inch screen, No, what Samsung really wants from such a massive piece of home entertainment technology lots of attention to its size during a major consumer electronics event (VES 2018), so that the company can then showcase all the cool new display technologies that "The Wall" comes with and let buyers judge for themselves if they'd be willing to pay premium prices for the same things in the more ordinary-sized 4K HDR TVs that emerge in 2018 and maybe 2019.

LG Display - a research arm of LG Electronics, Corp - focuses on developing innovative display technologies, which it then sells directly to display manufacturers that want to use them in their own products. That's primarily because Samsung has designed this big TV to be completely modular. These are smaller than LEDs used in current TVs, and are said to be more power efficient.

Just when we thought TV screen technologies had plateaued, CES 2018 introduced a new one: MicroLED.

According to the Galaxy S9 maker, its Samsung Knox for TV technology implements a hardware root of trust security architecture. But now its latest - and much larger - display can roll up, too. Unlike most such prototypes, The Wall is actually expected to go on sale sometime in 2018. It's probably still a niche technology, but it is interesting.

MicroLED is a flat-panel display technology first developed by professors Hongxing Jiang and Jingyu Lin of Texas Tech University while they were at Kansas State University in 2000.

MicroLED has some similarities to OLED. It doesn't require color filters or backlighting. So don't look for a massive roll-up TV in Best Buy just yet. That means that the TV is made of a bunch of smaller squares that are put together.

LG, Panasonic, Philips and Sony are now the only manufacturers producing OLED TVs, something that Samsung hasn't got behind. Now, if you're wondering where will Samsung find 8K content to play on the Q9S, this is where the AI component comes into the picture.

But at a press conference held on Monday at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, the message, tightly woven into the introduction of new refrigerators, a new laptop designed with Note lovers at heart and a revamped line of televisions and screens, was on the creation of a network for the future.
