As first reported by Engadget, two of the units unveiled featured a tinted glass panel, thus making the frameless screen easier to detect (while obscuring potential objects of distraction behind it), while a third appears to be as transparent as regular glass, and also boasts a design devoid of any physical frame.
All of the demo units at the CES reveal were freestanding – and the screen's width, at only a centimeter or so, surely adds to the illusion of a floating screen. Also, thanks to micro-LED's much-touted high pixel density, images seemed "incredibly sharp".
TechRadar's US Editor in Chief also says it was impressive in person, "though gets a bit grainy and yellow-ish up close."
The tech blog Endgadget stated: "In person, the effect Samsung's transparent micro OLED displays have is hard to describe, as content almost looks like a hologram as it floats in mid-air." Heady stuff.
Samsung also says that these see-through micro-LED displays are less impacted by ambient light, because they have higher brightness compared to transparent OLED panels (take that, LG and the reported big push to transparent OLEDs).
