LG Announces The World's First 88-inch 8K OLED Display
02 January, 2018, 10:37 | Author: Cecelia Webb
The annual CES event is just around the corner, and we are already getting to see what tech treats companies have lined up for the mega trade event.
That is huge by any means for a TV, and the same also applies to the pixel count that livens up the display, which easily sums up to more than 33 million. Besides, it's also the TV with the largest count of pixels, as LG's upcoming beast will be packing an 8K resolution.
The LG offering is both the largest and highest resolution OLED panel ever concocted and will be one of the centrepiece TV's at CES 2018.
Price will no doubt be another issue though LG is yet to reveal the same.
In a statement, In-Byung Kang, executive vice president and chief technology officer at LG Display, said: "The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED". Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard.
As for its competition, well there is none at the moment. The 32-inch 4K monitor will be the first from LG to offer the company's advanced Nano IPS technology, which relies on "nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths" and thus improve the visual experience on the display. 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.
As with the TV, there is no information available with the pricing. Content streaming service providers like Amazon and Netflix too have started to make 4K content more commonplace in its boutique of services. 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. And for purists, that's not really the highest quality you can get; native content is much better, but there just isn't any to watch right now.
