LGD unveils 88-inch 8K OLED display

LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

LG unveils world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, it's an 88-inch OLED display with 8K resolution.

Upcoming CES would witness the showcasing of massive 88-inch OLED TV from the South Korean manufacturers.

That said, LG's television is more notable for its technology and the simple fact that it exists; CES is about practical technology and a little bit of showboating, and LG's 88-inch 8K display is in the latter camp for 99 percent of the people that will get to sit down and take a look. Of course, one of the challenges for 8K resolution displays will be finding content which is shot at the resolution, considering 4K and HDR formats are just starting to take off.

Because OLED displays are self-emissive LG claims it has been able to achieve this without sacrificing brightness.

As with the TV, there is no information available with the pricing.

The release continued, "The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry".

What's more, LG's 8K TV is likely to be considerably more expensive than anything on the market.

Earlier, the largest OLED screen size was 77-inches and it only came with 4K support. "OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets". We expect to see a few new QLED TVs from Samsung at this year's CES as well. It has also been sliding itself into mobile OLED panels which is controlled by Samsung. Just recently, the company even got an approval from the South Korean trade ministry to set up a new organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel production facility in China. Meanwhile, the company has also suggested that it will also be announcing three new flagship monitors with interesting features as well.
