Transparent LEDs are about to change the way we view things, creating a separation of content and reality that is almost indistinguishable. In order to enhance the user's enjoyment of visual content, through this groundbreaking technology, Samsung Electronics has upgraded its leading MICRO LED display.

On 6th January, 2024 Samsung unveiled the world's first ever transparent MircoLED Display at Consumer Electronics Show (CES). World’s largest consumer electronics and information technology exhibition was held at Las Vegas from 9-12 January.  

This new modular MICRO LED impressed the audience with its futuristic design, combining superior craftsmanship and six years of exhaustive research and development. The transparent, glasslike display of LED MICROclears has revolutionized the way that consumers around the world are looking at their screens and is attracting attention.

Samsung's description of the MicroLED chip is extremely vague, describing it as being very small and using a precision manufacturing process to eliminate cracks and light distortions. Therefore, the transparent MICRO LED is able to provide a clean and unobscured image in both homes and B2B environments for different use cases.

The micro LED screen technology is an innovation in the field of display which provides a modular design allowing users to customize their form, size and ratio for fit into any space. The company's years of research and development, resulting from its expertise in the field of semiconductors, has led to an extremely efficient process for depositing LED chip circuits directly into glass with a view to mitigating the loss of brightness that users experience when using traditional displays.

The directly deposited on glass aspect is intriguing, given the majority of products connected to window and divider glass available today are affixed to glass using a micro-thin, perforated wafer or film. Architectural glass chips are used to power some LED devices, although the pixel pitches on these products make them best viewed at a distance. The transparency begins to disappear with them in order to tighten the pitches.
