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


For instance, there is the one from Samsung that too is of 88-inch dimension and also boasts of QLED tech which can be considered to be Samsung's own take on the OLED technology. However, to ensure that LG remains ahead in the race, they continue to ramp up their OLED production capacity. An 88-inch OLED panel is the largest OLED display to date.

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.

That means that the screen has a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels, a.k.a. 8K. Its closest rival, Samsung, has already moved from OLEDs to QLEDs, short for Quantum LED, for its TVs, leaving LG as the undisputed champ.

"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", In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display, said in a statement.

LG Display has become the largest display maker in the world as it has been providing its display to the likes of Sony, Panasonic, and others. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level. "OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with ideal black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles", LG added. "Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time - in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government", the report by Engadget reads. Take for instance LG which has just taken the wraps off of a huge OLED TV with an eye-popping 8K resolution. Meanwhile, the company has also suggested that it will also be announcing three new flagship monitors with interesting features as well.
