Given it's new, next generation, superior technology, almost certainly the first consumer products will be flagship and hence very
expensive. Also, because it's SAMSUNG there won't be Dolby Vision but only HDR 10 Plus.
That said, we can expect SONY similarly to release their own MicroLED technology TVs in retaliation, which unlike SAMSUNG's would be sporting DOLBY VISION instead of HDR 10 PLUS. SONY has already showcased MicroLED TV prototypes previously and SONY has in fact already released the technology into the professional industry, as seamless modular video display panels, named CLEDIS. But like I said because it's new it's very expensive.
But whilst SONY was first to market in the professional industry, it looks like SAMSUNG will be first to market in the consumer industry, with respect to MicroLED technology based TVs.
It's worth pointing out that like OLED, MicroLED will drive the top-end of the market. And like OLED it will be a while until the technology trickles down to more affordable models of TVs.
MicroLED technology is game-changing. It's potentially better than OLED.
Either way, to imply that nothing is happening in the SAMSUNG camp by posting pictures of crickets is factually inaccurate. There's something very big happening, namely releasing MicroLED technology based TVs. Personally, for a variety of reasons, I am not a huge fan of the brand, but there we are. Just posting the facts.
Even if you are not a SAMSUNG fan, if you have the opportunity I do recommend checking out the 150" TV SAMSUNG will be demoing just to see what the MicroLED technology performs like, including as compared with CLEDIS for those who have already seen that, which stole the show last year at CES 2017.
Personally, I hope that SONY launch their own MicroLED TVs soon, because having SONY and SAMSUNG competing for MicroLED TV market share will inevitably drive the prices downwards and the technology forwards, which is good for consumers and will speed the process by which and the time that it takes before more affordable MicroLED TVs become available for purchase.
So, very exciting times as far as consumer TVs are concerned!
