The South Korean company today presents LG MAGNIT, its first commercial television with microLED technology. The microLED technology is here and LG does not want to miss the train of the new great rival of the OLED. The new television will be available from this week in the market.
LG MAGNIT is LG’s answer to microLED televisions that Samsung or Sony has already been showing for years. We have a television with a gigantic size of 163-inches, with 4K resolution. Dimensions achieved thanks to the modular nature of the television, since the microLED allows different panels to be molded to form larger televisions.
LG shows its first microLED TV: MAGNIT
Accompanying the microLED technology, LG incorporates a proprietary “black coating” technology, to reduce reflections from the screen, make it easier to clean and protect the small LED pixels from external impact.
Samsung affirmed that : “MicroLED brings the best of the two great technologies that exist right now”. Equivalent to OLED, microLED technology is self-emitting, this way contrast is excellent. However we do not have organic pixels, so the degradation is expected to be less.

Inside the TV we will find the LG webOS operating system, equivalent to that offered in the rest of the models. LG MAGNIT will come equipped with the AI-Alpha α processor, without specifying which generation it is.
Between the modules of the microLED panel there will be a pixel pitch of 0.9mm, well below the model for cinemas with 3.3 millimeters. Each module will have a 640×360 resolution, with a maximum 1200 nits delivery capacity.
The size of these modules is 600 x 337.5 x 44.9 mm, small enough to “allow technicians to work quickly and without difficulty on a large scale,” according to LG itself. The modular design of LG MAGNIT is designed so that the connectors are at the edges of the panel and the communication between these panels will be wireless, which facilitates their connection without cables.
At the moment LG has not announced the official price of its new microLED television but, according to the company, LG MAGNIT will be focused on “a wide variety of commercial and public spaces, including convention centers, corporate and hotel lobbies, boutiques of luxury, broadcast studios, control rooms, exhibition halls and museums. “
