Chung Kang-il, vice president and head of Samsung visual display division's future planning group, says that Samsung considers microLED technology to be its strategic premium panel technology for the future, as the technology is an "ultimate display solution. The company will continue and develop microLED technologies for the TV market.
Prices of Samsung's microLED TVs are still prohibitively expensive. A couple of months ago Samsung Electronics launched a 89-inch microLED TV in Korea, that costs 130 million Won (around $100,000). Samsung says it is trying to lower the price of its microLED panels, but this ain't easy and takes longer than the company anticipated.
