Here’s why the 99-inch Samsung Micro LED TV launch has been delayed

MicroLED TVs are yet to hit the mainstream, primarily due to the prohibitively high costs associated with development. That hasn’t stopped Samsung from making a foray into the market, though. Samsung’s The Wall TV uses the technology and it is objectively one of the best smart TVs money can buy.

There is, however, one Samsung microLED TV that is yet to hit shelves. We’re referring to the 99-inch variant of the 110-inch MicroLED TV that was unveiled in South Korea some time ago.

There’s always the 110-inch model!

A report by The Elec states that the incredibly high demand for the 110-inch model has left little room for its smaller sibling. While the smaller TV retails for a lower price, it actually costs Samsung more to produce the 99-inch variant.

That is why Samsung isn’t too keen on making more of those, at least until demand for the 110-inch variant dies down. Furthermore, manufacturing the 99-inch mini-LED TV is a lot trickier, as the same number of crystals need to be crammed into a smaller space. This has resulted in some poor yields, forcing Samsung to discard many perfectly good panels.

Another reason for the delay involves Samsung not getting mini-LED shipments in time, despite placing the order well ahead of schedule. Then again, we can chalk that down the general shortage that has been plaguing the electronics industry for the better part of the year.
