Samsung Launches 110-inch MicroLED Ultra HDTV

Samsung has announced that a 110-inch version of its MicroLED TV will be available globally starting in Q1 2021. According to the company, the prefabricated sets combine surface mount technology with new production techniques borrowed from its semiconductor division that make MicroLED TVs easier to manufacture in a range of screen sizes. Samsung’s announcement indicates that it plans to offer similar displays with smaller screen sizes in the future.

Unlike the traditional LCD displays the company is known for, MicroLED is a self-emissive tech that uses micrometer-sized LEDs, eliminating the need for a backlight. The LEDs comprise the pixels in the display, allowing for enhanced brightness (Samsung says its 110-inch model is capable of hitting 2,000 nits) and extended color (100% of DCI-P3, according to the company).

A modular, custom-installed version of Samsung’s MicroLED display tech called “The Wall” offering even larger screen sizes was first introduced by the company in 2018. This was followed by announcements of prefabricated MicroLED TVs in 88-, 93-, 110-, and 150-inch sizes at the 2020 CES.

Samsung specs its 110-inch MicroLED as having a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours, or over ten years. The 4K-resolution TV has a bezel-free display for an all-screen look, and its Smart TV interface has a Multi View feature that allows the screen to be split into four separate quadrants each showing a different video source displayed at 55 inches diagonal. Sports fans take note.

According to Samsung, its new MicroLED TV also has “an embedded Majestic Sound System that delivers breathtaking 5.1 channel sound with no external speaker.”

Pricing for Samsung’s 110-inch MicroLED TV has not yet been announced.

Pricing was not announced, but the press photo showing the house in which the TV is installed is instructive.

What, you don't like my open air concept house? These writing gigs pay better than you think :)

very, very cool. makes me wonder what the smaller sizes would cost.

Paper thin, but how do you connect it to your receiver?

Probably that unreliable direct connect box they utilize in their 950 series.

...to accommodate that TV.

I have a 46" set from 2013 that still looks really good, but I will be upgrading to a larger set this coming year. That set will most likely be a 65" OLED. I could possibly do a 77" set, but that will be pushing it both size and price-wise.

I don't have a room in my house that would allow me to create a proper home theater with a TV this huge.

Oh, the problems that this new era of home electronics poses!

The math doesn't add up, even if the set is left on 24hrs a day for the 10 years, which is 87,600 hrs total on the 10 years.

Other than commercial purpose no customer may have the set on 24 hours per day, and there is no mention if the 100,000 hours is the point of mid-brightness as other display technologies.

Therefore, longevity specs cannot be trusted as quoted, neither they should be a concern for the public group that would buy these sets because they will probably replace them much sooner than their life expectancy, pursuing updated technologies.
