Samsung has unveiled its latest jaw-dropping Micro LED displays, which can be arranged in just about any configuration to fit a given room, no matter its shape or size.

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. These MicroLEDs feature millions of inorganic red, green, and blue microscopic LED chips which are capable of producing their own light - resulting in a superior contrast ratio and near flawless color.

The MicroLED technology featured in The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience.

Samsung followed up the 146-inch Micro LED "The Wall" 4K TV announced past year with a smaller, more appropriately sized 75-inch display featuring the same high-quality imagery.

Why it matters: Samsung's modular Micro LED display technology is a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award victor, and rightfully so.

MicroLED is Samsung's new display technology, based on a heavily miniaturized version of RGB light-emitting diode (LED) arrays used in very large commercial displays. So this time around, the 75-inch model is a home-friendly product with 4K Micro LED technology.

Yoon Lee, Senior Vice President Samsung Electronics America, said it will deliver "incredible color and contrast that others can't compete with". "Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities". Even when adding more modules, Samsung Micro LED displays can scale to increase the resolution - all while keeping the pixel density constant. First and foremost is its modular nature which allows users to create virtually any screen size to meet spatial, aesthetic or functional needs. Additionally, Micro LED can support everything from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or even 1:1 - without having to make any compromises in its picture quality.
