LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

That is huge by any means for a TV, and the same also applies to the pixel count that livens up the display, which easily sums up to more than 33 million.

With this in mind, we'd absolutely love to give the new LG 8K OLED TV a spin with some high dynamic range 4K Blu-ray disc movies, and preferably with Dolby Vision HDR running just to spice things up even further on exquisite detail. LG Display is going to showcase its new display at CES 2018 which is an 88inch panel with 8K resolution.

Previously, the largest OLED screen size was 77 inches, and it was a miserable 4K.

Because OLED displays are self-emissive LG claims it has been able to achieve this without sacrificing brightness.


Furthermore, the price of LG 8K OLED TV, though not officially announced, will sure not come cheap.

This new OLED display from LG has a resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels which takes the cumulative pixel count to almost 33 million pixels. 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.

LG is planning to one-up its crosstown rival Samsung by unveiling the world's first massive 8K display panel at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. 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. So expect nothing less than that for a TV with double the resolution. The company has also stated that it will be making investments in large-sized OLED production in Guangzhou, China. When it comes to small OLED screens, however, Samsung's Super AMOLED panels for mobile devices has had a head start compared to LG.
