While Korean manufacturer Samsung is indeed known for its expertise in OLED technology, especially on its high end TVs, the company is getting big on newer display technology as well better. Samsung has been investing in its Mini LED TVs as of late and now is targeting to sell two million units in Mini LED TV sales next year.
In accordance with what a recent report has had to say, the company will launch its upcoming QLED TV lineup that will feature with Mini LED backlighting technology by next year. The new high end offerings are in fact expected to feature 4K panels and also are expected to arrive in multiple size variants which will go on and include 55 inch, 65 inch, 75 inch and 85 inch versions. The new Mini LED TVs will offer a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 which is much greater than the 10,000:1 that is found in Samsung’s current generation of TVs – just another improvement in fact that the new display technology offers.
Samsung’s up and coming series of Mini LED powered QLED TVs is also expected to arrive with various other improvements as well – these including the likes of higher brightness, better HDR, as well as a wider color gamut to name a few. At the current moment in time while Apex, Epistar, FitTech, Macroblock, San’an Optoelectronics and Saultech are all racing towards the idea of ramping up the Mini LED chip production for Samsung, although, these samplings only happen to be in just the sampling stage as of now.
Of course it’s important to take into consideration the fact that mini LED does not exactly offer a vastly better image quality than LCD panels, however, they are indeed known to be more cost effective – especially when compared to traditional OLEDs. Notably, Apple is expected to soon launch an iPad Pro with a Mini LED based technology later in the year.
