Samsung's combining size and resolution with this 98-inch Q900 QLED 8K TV, which it debuted at CES 2019.

The company stated at CES that it will still be several years before Micro LED hits the market, so no price is yet on the horizon. For those who don't know, MicroLED TVs are based on self-emitting technology similar to OLED TVs, and each chip incorporates RGB color.

Samsung has not yet released pricing for these new TVs.

The Korean firm says the revolutionary new Micro LED technology features leading-edge self-emissive technology and modular capabilities which will help Micro LED displays deliver unparalleled picture quality, versatility and design. OLED panels must be manufactured in complete sections like LCD panels and are unfeasible to manufacture in very large sizes, while MicroLED modules can be scaled and assembled in sections to support much bigger screens.

Samsung says it has improved the MicroLED tech since past year by refining the manufacturing process of MicroLED panels to shrink the gap between the microscopic LEDs that make up these displays.

Yoon Lee, Senior Vice President Samsung Electronics America, said it will deliver "incredible color and contrast that others can't compete with".

Samsung's Micro LED technology also optimises the content no matter the size and shape of the screen.

Micro LED technology is unique for a couple of different reasons. Now, that would be more than enough for people but if you're not satisfied then you can go with a 219-inch upgrade to The Wall that Samsung announced today. It also optimises the content resolution without compromising the pixel density.

Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customise it to fit any room or space.

Displays from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or even 1:1 will all work just as well with the modular system, according to Samsung.
