By quitting the production of LCD display, the Korean giant plans to boost its high end TV products shipment based on diverse display technologies, aiming to exit the low price competition. Apart from the scheduled “The Wall” TV launch in the market of North America and Europe, Samsung might also release new TV products based on Mini LED backlight technology. The total shipment could reach over 3 million units and the company is looking for backups from Taiwan and China chip suppliers.

To achieve production of over 3 million TV units, Samsung has been in discussion with chip makers including Epistar, Lextar, Sanan, and HC Semitek to support the surging demands of Mini LED chips. These companies were said to provide samples for Samsung by September this year.

According to the calculation of TrendForce, a 65-inch 8K Mini LED backlight TV usually deploy more than 12 thousand Mini LED chips and a 85-inch TV requires more than 20 thousand chips. If Samsung plans to ship more than 3 million Mini LED backlit TVs, it will use up to more than 30 billion chips.

In addition to the demand of Mini LED chips, Samsung also needs to tackle the issue of transferring yield to achieve its goal of launching Mini LED backlit TV next year. It was revealed that Samsung might use COB (chip on board) technology with passive matrix driver plan. This Mini LED backlit TV project is also likely to boost demands for driver ICs and PCB backplane. Samsung is in discussion with its suppliers from Taiwan and China at the moment, according to the report of TechNews.

Innovative display technologies Mini LED and Micro LED have been showing their strengths recently with leading brands like Apple and Samsung ready to debut new products based on the technologies. It is expected that 2021 will be the year when we see booming applications based on Mini LED.

2020 Micro LED Forum will unveil more Mini LED and Micro LED technology and commercialization progresses. Industry experts are going to share their insight and illustrate further development trend of these emerging display technologies. Registar and get your early bird discount now.
