LG Display creates 88 inch 8K OLED

LG Display creates 88 inch 8K OLED

Now we have curved screens, 4K resolutions, multiple HDR standards, and quantum or nano particles.

Once unveiled, this will largest and highest-resolution OLED TV in the market, Engadget reports. The highest resolution on commercial TVs so far is 4K or Ultra HD, which is what TV makers are pushing in their flagship models.

Having said that, there is no harm in seeing and experience the TV from a distance and as it happens, a lucky few will be able to get a glimpse of the LG 8K OLED TV at the LG Display booth in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 (January 9-12), Las Vegas. The entertainment industry is just catching up with support for 4K and will take a bit longer to rally behind 8K at this rate. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels previous year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. With double the resolution and nine extra inches of display, you can expect that LG's 88-inch 8K OLED television is going to cost quite a bit more. Brands like LG, Sony and Panasonic already offer 77-inch TVs.

Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a Micro LED TV at the trade show.

This, if not the size alone, makes one wonder if the new TV is just to showcase the technological might of the company or if it is really meant for a commercial launch anytime soon. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level.

There is now no information regarding the price of the 8K display, although LG said it would reveal more information about the panel at CES 2018.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream.

The television, which measures a huge 88 inches across in its display, packs a total of 7780 x 4320 pixels into all that screen real estate.
