"LG Set To Reveal 88" 8K OLED TV At CES 2018


While that's not the largest television you can buy, the upgrade to LG's (now paltry-looking) 77-inch 4K display is the first big OLED display with more than 33 million pixels to play with-perfect for all the 8K content you can access, which is none.

It looks LG is set for the upcoming CES 2018 event.

LG has revealed its new 88-inch 8K OLED display panel, Engadget reports. It's fair to say that 4K televisions are gaining in popularity, and we're seeing more native 4K content from streaming services and more 4K Blu-rays available for your favorite films. As of now, further details regarding the 8K TV are unknown and we'll have a better knowledge about its specifications once it goes official at CES 2018.

This, if not the size alone, makes one wonder if the new TV is just to showcase the technological might of the company or if it is really meant for a commercial launch anytime soon. It seems that the big screen is just LG showing off. 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.

While LG has been in the game for a long time, the Korean consumer electronics giant has come up with the world's largest OLED TV resolution which is 7680×4320 pixels. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels past year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. So expect nothing less than that for a TV with double the resolution. Now making an 88-inch 8K OLED display was needed because LG had a few thoughts regarding the existing display technology which is LCDs. Even if you own an expensive 4K or UHD TV, the new display from LG puts it to shame as it has four times as many pixels. OLED panels can easily overcome this issue as OLEDs are self-emissive and require much less power than backlit LCD panels. We'll know what LG and Samsung, among others, have in store for us once CES 2018 kicks off starting January 9.
