This tiny TV tech is inside the best and biggest TVs in 2021
Mini-LED screen technology is used mainly in TV screens. Today, most major TV manufacturers, including Philips, TCL and Samsung have mini-LED TVs that can be bought or built with Mini LED’s backlight technology.
Mini-LED is sometimes combined with other types of tech by some brands. LG’s Mini LED TV range, ‘QNED’ screens is now available around the world. This TV model features both LG’s NanoCell LCD as well as mini-LED backlighting.
There are also new TV models being announced at the tech expo . Samsung has already announced new TVs during CES 2022, which include MicroLED, miniLED and QLED models. The brand’s Neo QLED TV line includes the new mini-LEDs. This line will see major changes for 2022, including a Shape Adaptive Lighting Control feature that gives TVs better control over blooming and an upgrade of the backlight to a 14 bit for greater luminance points.
Mini-LED is found in many modern TVs today, but it can also be found in other devices that have a screen. Rumours suggest that it could also be used in the Nintendo Switch. Apple uses mini-LED technology in its new MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021), and its new iPad Pro (221). Reports suggest that it may also be used in the new MacBook Air 2022, and new MacBook Pros.

We can expect mini-LED in more TVs than other brands, now that Apple has started to add it to its new products. Mini-LED technology is in a very exciting phase. If you are looking to buy a new TV, it’s worth brushing up your skills.
Here you will find mini-LED. How does mini-LED work? And how will it affect your viewing experience? We’ll be covering the technical details of mini LED TVs. Find out if this TV technology is right for your needs.
- What’s OLED? TV panel tech explained
Let’s now get to the technical details. Mini-LED, as you can guess by the name, shrinks the backlighting LED modules used to illuminate LCD screens.
The LCD pixels cannot be illuminated by themselves, but can. They need light to shine through. This is what gives the LCD display its necessary brightness and color. This extra layer of backlighting ensures that the LCD display’s pixels cannot be completely turned off.
What does this mean for your viewing experience? It is best to compare this to an LCD screen. An LCD screen’s blacks are not just less inky than OLED counterparts. If the backlight of an LCD TV isn’t properly controlled and implemented, it can also cause unevenness in the display of what should be uniform black areas.
One good example is to imagine the ending credits of most movies. The screen is black with white text scrolling across it. It’s common to see light reflected off the edges of an LCD TV’s LCD screen. This means that what should be black has become more cloudy grey.
We all know that a TV is not bought solely to show how the movie ends. This kind of blurry picture quality has made LCD technology seem second-class to its shiny OLED rival.
There is still a way that LCD technology can reaffirm itself among the top TVs – and it’s called mini-LED.
