LG CES 2018: Samsung Rival To Unveil 88-Inch 8K Display

02 January, 2018, 11:23 | Author: Marie Harrington
  • The world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display boasts 33 million pixels- four times as many pixels as current 4K UHD TVs- although so far there is very little 8K content to watch on

This display is going to be the largest and the highest resolution in OLED panel until now. We now know that LG will kick things off with a showstopper 88-inch OLED television with an 8K display. The firm said that it used OLED for its new display because it does not involve additional cost to make.

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

Unlike liquid crystal displays (LCDs) which need display backlight areas in order to display ultra-high-resolution pictures, OLEDs can control 33 million pixels one by one, resulting in 8K high resolution and clear pictures, LG Display explained. While this combination is now available for all major brands including the likes of LG, Sony, and Panasonic, except for Samsung, which has shifted its focus on QLED TVs. As Engadget notes, this new TV from the company has the biggest OLED display in the world with the highest resolution.

Apple moral: Trademark founder's name to avoid being branded dumb
They are the owners of the company " Steve Jobs ", a clothing and accessory line named after Apple's iconic founder. They've had battles with some of the best like Samsung, Qualcomm, and Amazon.

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

What's more, LG's 8K TV is likely to be considerably more expensive than anything on the market. 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. The new facility in Guangzhou, China, was recently just approved by the Korean government as part of the two countries' attempts to improve relations. It has also been sliding itself into mobile OLED panels which is controlled by Samsung. Meanwhile, the company has also suggested that it will also be announcing three new flagship monitors with interesting features as well.
