LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

We're now seeing a growth 4K TVs and HDR content that is slowly but surely going mainstream. In addition, LG's 8K TV would only be upscaling 4K contents are we are yet to witness native 8K contents whether in physical form or digital.

Previously, the largest OLED screen size was 77 inches, and it was a miserable 4K. Then, of course, there is also the issue of the lack of 8K content that one will still have to deal with, something that isn't likely to ease anytime soon given that the content makers have only just started to stable out in the 4K space.

Unlike liquid crystal displays (LCDs) which need display backlight areas in order to display ultra-high-resolution pictures, OLEDs can control 33 million pixels one by one, resulting in 8K high resolution and clear pictures, LG Display explained. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels past year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. Currently, the 4K resolution TV model is offered by brands like LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic but all these companies use disPlays manufactured by LG Display.

More details, including pricing, should be revealed when the display is shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 9 to 12, 2018.

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

In other words, this experimental new OLED UHD TV is an absolute monster of advanced technology.

It is pushing its own QLED TV, which puts a quantum dot sheet over an LCD to achieve a higher resolution. It has also been sliding itself into mobile OLED panels which is controlled by Samsung.

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. While the engineers at LG Display are further going to expand the reach of the OLED display in 2018 by introducing first of its kind 8K OLED display at CES 2018.
