The report said that Samsung included Epistar to its Micro LED supply chain to secure its promise for launching Micro LED TVs in the second half of 2020. Samsung revealed its Micro LED TV lineup earlier this year at CES 2020. The company aims to debut four sizes Micro LED TVs covering 75 inches, 88 inches 93 inches and 110 inches to the market in Europe, North America and the Middle East this year.

To achieve the goal, Samsung has to ensure sufficient supply of Micro LED chips. The Korean company currently work with Taiwan’s PlayNitride and China’s Sanan for chip. Epistar has announced the plan to expand production capacity for miniaturized LED chips to meet the increasing demands from its clients. The news of Samsung adding the chip maker into its supply chain also matches Epistar’s expansion in production capacity.

Epistar is reportedly supplying Mini LED chips for Apple’s new products including iPad Pro and MacBook Pro for 2020 and 2021 which are said to be adopting Mini LED technology.
