LGD unveils 88-inch 8K OLED display

LG to show off 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES

LG Display has showcased a new 88-inch OLED display with an 8K resolution, ahead of the upcoming CES 2018 show in Las Vegas.

While it is more a tech demo unit rather than a consumer product at present, the 88-incher shows what is capable with OLED technology and how it can be utilised in future, when 8K content becomes more readily available. And, as each pixel is significantly smaller than their UHD or Full HD counterparts, the biggest challenge is ensuring they can emit the same levels of brightness. With twice the resolution along with 9-inches of display more in the offing, that the price of the new 8K OLED TV will be significantly on the north of the above price ball park is quite natural.

LG has already shown a 77-in 4K OLED and developed a transparent and flexible 77-in OLED in June a year ago. 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. Interestingly, the new system has an 8K display making it the first of its kind and with this, the company is promising better things for the consumers.

If one goes by the resolution, this will be the highest resolution OLED display and the largest one ever.

Four CRPF troopers, two militants killed in Kashmir
One more militant has been killed, they said adding but bodies of only two militants have so far been recovered. Three terrorsits had stormed a CRPF training camp to stage a fidayeen attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.

That means that the screen has a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels, a.k.a. 8K.

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. This left LG has the biggest name in the high-resolution, large screen OLED display market.

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.

The development further underlines LG's commitment to OLED while Samsung is turning away from the technology to focus on QLED development. LG's 77-inch TV costs a whopping $20,000. "OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with flawless black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles", LG added.
