Everything you need to know about a MicroLED TV


When it comes to the biggest TV brands in the world, Samsung is the name that comes first to our minds. The company is known for selling a wide range of TVs. Its portfolio of TVs consists of LCD and QD-OLED TVs. They are based on different display technologies. The LCD TV range lies in the affordable category whereas the QD-OLED TVs lie in the high-end segment. Besides these display technologies, the company introduced MicroLED display technology back in 2018. It was introduced with the huge The Wall TV.

In this short brief, we will uncover how a MicroLED TV is better in contrast to other TVs.

How does a MicroLED panel work?

A MicroLED panel is made of extremely small individual pixels. These pixels have the capacity to create color as well as light just like the OLED. However, the main difference between an OLED and a MicroLED is that the latter doesn’t utilize pixels created from organic material. It is termed a MicroLED panel. The name depicts that the pixels are quite small and can be only measured in micrometers.

Since the pixels in a MicroLED has the capacity to create color and light, therefore, a separate backlight source is not required. For this reason, the panel on a whole appears thinner in contrast to LCD, Mini-LED, and OLED panels. Due to the potential of pixels to generate independent light and color, the light is precisely controlled to a pixel level. Due to this, a MicroLED panel displays accurate blacks and an infinite contrast ratio as does an OLED.

On the other hand, it presents a wide viewing angle that is just like the one presented with OLED TVs and sometimes even better than this. MicroLED does not present the chances of burning after long periods of uninterrupted use or high brightness level due to the fact that pixels in MicroLED are not based on organic material.

In contrast to LCD or OLED, a MicroLED offers high efficiency and brightness. The best Mini-LED TV is capable of providing 4,000 nits of peak brightness. Similarly, a MicroLED TV can also reach up to 4,000 nits of peak brightness. The company is, however, self-confident that it can reach the mark of peak brightness of up to 10,000 nits. Thus, attaining ideal realism with HDR content.
