Mini LEDs and micro LEDs: display technologies of the future
Understand the differences between OLED and LED It has not been easy for some users, although luckily we can already say that the vast majority are clear about what screen technologies offer and even which would be more convenient depending on the use that is planned.
However, as advances in technology do not stop, now two new solutions are coming to the market that can complicate the choice again. In particular, buying a high-end TV may be a bit more complicated even if you have to decide between models LED, micro LED, mini LED or OLED.
So we are going to give you the keys to each of them and also an easy explanation about what they consist of. So that if you consider buying a new TV this 2021 you have it easier. Or as we said, so you know why a possible new laptop or tablet would see its price increase.
Display technology Mini LED It is basically the same as what LED technology offers up to now. The big difference is in the backlighting system used. As its name suggests, it is now they use a series of smaller LEDs with which the number of lighting zones increases, thus improving its control.
Therefore, knowing that there are already TV models that can reach up to 30,000 LEDs (such as LG’s new QNED range), what is obtained is a direct improvement both in the maximum brightness level and also in contrast and the ability to display. much deeper blacks, thus approaching OLED quality where each pixel manages its own level of brightness.
Without a doubt, Mini LED screens will be the most popular, because despite the increase in price they will suffer, it will not be as marked as with Micro LED.
- Higher level of brightness, saturation, contrast and depth of black
- More precise control of the different lighting zones
- Due to the rear lighting system, the thickness of these screens will be affected, although for much it will not be a great detriment
The technology Micro LED For its part, although it also shares the basis of traditional LED technology, it is much closer to what OLED offers thanks to the fact that each of the pixels that make up the panel have the ability to self-manage the level of brightness they produce.
This very precise control for each of the pixels allows it to offer a performance very similar to OLED, where pixels composed of an organic material are capable of generating the light they need to be seen. Therefore, at the level of saturation, contrast and quality of blacks they would be practically on par.
Another advantage of this technology is that it allows you to create screens by easily combining different panels or modules. Thus, large screens can be built for uses that go far beyond the reproduction of content in the home. For example, for film applications, serial productions and even advertising.
Of course, this advantage also translates into a disadvantage because at the moment it is only feasible to manufacture large diagonal screens if you do not want to sacrifice resolution. Without forgetting that it is the most expensive technology today. That’s why a 77-inch micro LED TV can cost so much money compared to its namesake LED or OLED.
- OLED color, contrast and saturation accuracy
- Higher level of brightness, ideal for HDR content
- Valid only for large inch screens
OLED vs LED vs Mini LED vs Micro LED
As you may have already deduced if you have some experience with the different image technologies, each and every one of them will continue to have their applications and audience. At the quality level it is true that OLED and Micro LED are in a higher step, but also their price is higher. In one because of the cost and in another because of the difficulty of manufacture.
On the other hand, LEDs and mini LEDs will be much more accessible and the advantages of the latter will make the improvement in image quality that it offers more than enough for a large majority. That is why its popularity will grow faster and when it comes to betting on an interesting product in quality and price, most will opt for it.
Manufacturers that already bet on these technologies
Both Mini LED and Micro LED are already two real technologies. The only problem is that, as happened when OLED televisions were introduced in their day, it is very expensive to manufacture and that implies products with a high price.
However, Samsung is already betting on Micro LED technology. So if you have space and enough money (130,000 euros), you can get a 110 inch TV which is an absolute delight. But for most mortals, until the end of the year there may not be any proposal that is really attractive.
If you are looking for the highest possible image quality and aspects such as the maximum brightness level or the possible useful life do not worry you so much (because you will not have it on 24 hours seven days a week), it is clear that OLED will continue to be the great option . For the rest, bet on LED panels that continue to offer great experiences and see how the new proposals that use mini LED technology settle.
