Two years ago, Realme started its activities as a small sub-brand under Oppo’s arms. The company pushed competitive smartphones and quickly became one of the most notable smartphone brands in the industry. Now, Realme offers more than just smartphones. As a lifestyle brand, Realme provides wearables, TWS devices and just recently entered the market of smart TVs. The company released a set of smart TVs in India with competitive prices. Today, the company is giving an important step in the world of smart TVs.
On September 25, Realme announced the world’s first SLED 4K smart TV. Well, some will not consider it an actual launch but a peek at the new technology (GSM). After all, the TV is not ready to go on sale just yet. Despite this, Realme decided to reveal it due to the appeal brought by SLED TVs as it may be a viable alternative over the premium QLED (Quantum Dot) technology.
Realme’s SLED technology will make way to the market as a 55-inch TV. The new panel will deliver just over 100%, 108% to be exact, of the NTSC color spectrum. However, the technology will keep the excessive blue light under control. This latter detail was certified by TUV Rheinland.
The new SLED technology revitalizes the old LCD formula. The biggest innovation comes through a new way to illuminate the panel. The usual LCD monitors have a white backlight that goes through RGB filters. With SLED, the backlight will make use of the Red, Green, and Blue LEDs to create the usual triplet. In any case, this panel still sits under the LCD category. Since it still uses the Liquid Crystal technology.
The technology also offers an alternative over the usual QLED technology that is trending in the market. The Quantum Dot technology uses blue backlight and uses quantum dots to absorb this light and reproduce red or green colors. The LCD layers help the engine to control the amount of light passing through each pixel.
Of course, the goal of SLED is not just to deliver basic color reproduction, but it ensures good accuracy for each one of them. The technology offers a wider color spectrum and works to improve the image quality as well.
According to Realme, the SLED technology comes as better technology, and for that reason, it does not want to follow the QLED road. Other companies like Samsung and even OnePlus already offer QLED panels in the Indian market. The company surely will bring the new TV to India and the technology may count in favor of Realme.
