Mini LED-a promising transitional product for Micro LED

The first day of the snapdragon summit

The well-known domestic TV brand Konka held a press conference during the event, showing the APHAEA Micro LED future screen product matrix, including TVs, Micro LED watches and other products, showing the application scenarios of Micro LED in multiple scenarios, which is the future of Micro LED Show more possibilities in consumer applications.

Mini LED-a promising transitional product for Micro LED

Although Micro LED has unlimited prospects, it is difficult to produce and costly, and mass production cannot be achieved at present. TV manufacturers are also actively looking for transitional products, among which Mini LED is a very ideal transitional product.

Mini LEDs are also called “sub-millimeter light emitting diodes”. They are LEDs with a grain size of 100 microns. This technology is between LEDs and Micro LEDs. In essence, it is an extension of traditional LED backlight technology.

Compared with the disadvantage of traditional LCD screens that cannot adjust the backlight separately, Mini LED can make the LED backlight beads smaller, allowing the screen to integrate more backlights, thereby dividing finer backlight zones.

After the screen has more backlight partitions, the brightness of a certain area of ​​the screen can be controlled separately. The bright places are bright enough, and the dark places are deep enough, which greatly improves the contrast of the picture.

In terms of image quality, the Mini LED screen has higher brightness and higher contrast. It can better control the light leakage in the dark part of the LCD, and show more depth in dark scenes.

In the manufacturing process, Mini LED has a relatively mature technology, a high production yield, and it is easy to cut the opposite sex screen, can realize the form of high-curved backlight, and save electricity. In terms of birth cost, Mini LED is more cost-effective. According to industry estimates, the price of a Mini LED display panel is only 60% to 80% of that of an OLED TV panel, but the picture quality effect is comparable to that of OLED.

From the perspective of industry and products, the author is more optimistic about the further development of Mini LED TV products in the market in the next 2-3 years. At present, many TV brands such as Xiaomi, Philips, TCL, Konkaduo have been released this year. After the introduction of Mini LED TV products, more TV brands have since followed up. According to market estimates, the Mini LED industry market will reach US$1 billion by 2023.

And Micro LED may take the lead in the layout of high-end flagship products, but it may take some time to enter the market.

The above are just speculations made by the author, but what is certain is that the effect of TV screens is definitely getting better and better. After the gradual popularization of 4K, technologies such as 8K and 120Hz will be gradually deployed to TVs. The use of these new technologies will allow TV manufacturers Speed ​​up the layout of these new standards of HDMI 2.1 interface on TV.

The author believes that Mini LED TVs will be initially introduced to the market starting next year, and the first wave of high-end flagship products for new TVs should become the main force of Mini LED TVs.

Micro LED is still some time away from the real market, and the possibility of launching civilian-grade TV products is very small. I believe that Micro LED technology has been applied to TVs for at least 3 years.

No matter how the technology develops, picture quality is always the core of TV. More vivid picture effects can bring more excitement to the audience. This is the unique charm of TV. What kind of surprises TV will bring us in the future, please look forward to.
