LG Announces The World's First 88-inch 8K OLED Display

02 January 2018

Once unveiled, this will largest and highest-resolution OLED TV in the market, Engadget reports.

LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available.

Having said that, we have few details about the TV right now but we are expecting more information to be shared during the launch event.

Sanchez said the driver was coming home from a party, where "he had obviously had too much to drink and maybe too much to smoke". Banners at the Capitol will be flown at half-staff in the fallen officer's respect, as indicated by an announcement from Gov.

The product has 33 million pixels (7680 × 4320 pixels), 16 times the resolution of a full HD display (1920 × 1080) and quadruple that of a UHD display (3840 × 2160).

LG is set to showcase the tech product at CES 2018, which is when companies from all over the world attend to one-up each other with their own offerings. As for the competition, Samsung might not come into the picture in this category as the company has already shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs. Numerous TV manufacturers including LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic have sourced their large OLED panels from LG Display itself. The image of the TV released by LG is also equally stunning, to say the least, though the only problem here - if it can be so said - is that there isn't any 8K content to view on the TV just yet. LG's 77-inch TV costs a whopping $20,000. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR.

All in all, LG's announcement comes at a time when the company is making a bigger push into OLED panels and ramping up its operations. The recent development in this scenario is the construction of a manufacturing plant in China's Guangzhou city. The recognition belongs to Dell after the Round Rock, Texas-based company announced its 32-inch 7680x4320 UltraSharp UP3218K monitor at CES 2017 and started selling the device months after.
