Korean news outlets are reporting that Samsung will launch an 150" MicroLED display for home use. Showing it in Las Vegas at CES that kicks off the year for consumer electronics.

“Samsung will likely push for the micro LED TV in the premium TV segment after releasing them next year”, an industry insider told ZDNet Korea.

According to Korean media including Korean Herald Micro LED TVs have not been widely commercialized so far due to high manufacturing costs and technical difficulties to make a panel with LEDs measuring less than 100 micrometers, which is slimmer than the width of a human hair. Despite the size of the Micro LEDs, there will only be large displays for the near future due to dificulties manufacaturing 4K displays in smaller sizes using the technology. However some media do confound Micro-LED displays and TVs with Samsung's RGB SMD LED Cinema Display, caling that Microled.

Currently micro-led displays are expensive, the most shining example being the Sony CLEDIS/C-LED. There is the expectation that it will in the longer run be less expensive than OLED, or even High-end LCD. Using inorganic materials, over Organic LED, is said to lead to thinner displays and easier manufacturing compared to OLED.

Sony is looking to deploy CLED into cinema's, so may Samsung. Looking to use, in the future, its micro-led displays instead of the first generation Samsung Premier cinema displays, using 2.5mm pitch SMD RGB LED vdieo wall displays.

Panel maker AUO's  CEO, chairman, Paul Peng, expects that Micro-LED to remain stuck in the development phase for the next two years, eventhought there be many prototypes, demonstrators and even engineering samples.

Apple and Samsung are in yet another race to lead the Micro-LED world, Apple reportedly focussed on small Apple Watch/iPhone sized displays, with Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC to address manufacturing problems, and moving R&D states side, completing Taiwanese R&D phase.

Samsung is reported to acquire Taiwanese Micro-LED company PlayNtride.

This looks like a one piece situation, no?

There is NO info, beyond this. 150" would pose transport, installation and yield challenges. You have contacts at Samsung, could you ask if this would be a contender for your appartment systems. Aswell as for for the modular walls.
