With CES just days away, Samsung unveiled its new 75-inch Micro LED display and a host of innovations in display technology, on January 6 at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas.

“Our vision for Samsung Electronics is focused on making the screen the center of the AI era,” said Han, describing the future role of displays throughout our lives. The screen will be a customizable hub that can be placed anywhere in the home, enabling all devices to be connected and controlled intelligently with ease.
Unveiling the 75-inch Micro LED at the First Look event, Han introduced a new era of Micro LED technology: “This advancement in technology will soon enable all screens, from small devices to ultra-large devices, to be replaced by Micro LED.”
Speaking at the event, Andrew Sivori, Vice President at Samsung Electronics America, described the endless possibilities offered by the modular design of Micro LED technology: “Micro LED is the next frontier of displays.”
The modular technology behind the 75-inch Micro LED display won a CES 2019 Best of Innovation award for its revolutionary design, which frees the screen from the limitations of conventional displays.
By adding or removing modules, consumers can easily configure their display to any size. They can even rearrange modules to create different shapes.
