Samsung begins production of 89-inch MicroLED TVs

Samsung started production of 89-inch MicroLED TVs in the third quarter. This is Samsung's first MicroLED TV to use an LTPS TFT glass substrate instead of a printed circuit board. However, Samsung's 101-inch and 114-inch LTPS TFT MicroLED TVs have not yet started production, sources said.

Samsung originally planned to start production of the 89-inch and 101-inch models in May, but due to supply chain issues and low yields, the production date was delayed, and production of the 89-inch model has not started until now.

The exact reason for the delay remains unclear, and the final price for the 89-inch model is yet to be announced. Samsung set the price at around $80,000 (about 566,000 yuan) before starting production, which is much lower than previous MicroLED TV models, but still very expensive for a TV.

In addition, all three sizes use 34 x 85-micron LED chips provided by Taiwan-based LED company PlayNitride, the smallest LED chips Samsung has ever used.
