By 2008 Samsung plans to equip all of its LCD displays with a LED-based backlight.
Samsung recently introduced an LED-based 20.1-inch LCD monitor (SyncMaster XL20) in South Korea with a price tag of 1,780,000 won (US$1,878). The new model is set to hit Europe and the US in November and December, respectively, the report noted. The company also plans to launch a 24-inch LED-based LCD monitor in 2007, added the report.

The SyncMaster XL20 features a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, brightness of 250 cd/m2, response time of 8ms, viewing angle of 178 degrees and has a color gamut of 114%, according to a Japanese press release from Samsung in late September. Samsung will start offering the 20.1-inch LED-based monitor in Japan in the second half of November at a price tag of 158,000 yen (US$1,333), the press pointed out.
