LG Unveils 88-Inch 8K OLED TV, First In The World

LG to show off 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES LG to showcase world's largest 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES 2018

This new model is an upgrade over LG's existing 77-inch panel that comes with 4K resolution.

Upcoming CES would witness the showcasing of massive 88-inch OLED TV from the South Korean manufacturers.

"As tipped, LG is set to use next weeks CES 2018, to roll out an 8K 88" OLED TV. LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display.

Because OLED displays are self-emissive LG claims it has been able to achieve this without sacrificing brightness. Of course, one of the challenges for 8K resolution displays will be finding content which is shot at the resolution, considering 4K and HDR formats are just starting to take off. The TV also sports a price tag of $20,000 but is of 4K resolution only.

The release continued, "The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry".

There is now no information regarding the price of the 8K display, although LG said it would reveal more information about the panel at CES 2018.

It is pushing its own QLED TV, which puts a quantum dot sheet over an LCD to achieve a higher resolution. 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.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES. The recent development in this scenario is the construction of a manufacturing plant in China's Guangzhou city.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream.
