LG Announces The World's First 88-inch 8K OLED Display

LG Announces The World's First 88-inch 8K OLED Display

LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available. With double the resolution and nine extra inches of display, you can expect that LG's 88-inch 8K OLED television is going to cost quite a bit more. However, to ensure that LG remains ahead in the race, they continue to ramp up their OLED production capacity.

The significance of ultra-high 8K resolution panel development is higher resolution without compromising brightness. LG's 8K television will be around 7680×4320 pixels in resolution and for the attendees at CES, it will be definitely one of the major attractions at the show. Fellow South Korean electronics rival Samsung has an 88-inch TV, but it's both just 4K and QLED technology (OLED is better).

As we said, this is an experimental 4K TV and really exists more for the sheer public relations value it creates, so don't hold your breath for 8K OLED hitting the shelves or Amazon listings any time soon in 2018.

LG Display has become the largest display maker in the world as it has been providing its display to the likes of Sony, Panasonic, and others. Besides, it's also the TV with the largest count of pixels, as LG's upcoming beast will be packing an 8K resolution. "OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets". At $20,000, the company's 77-inch 4K product is already beyond what most consumers would be willing to pay for. "Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time - in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government", the report by Engadget reads. The recognition belongs to Dell after the Round Rock, Texas-based company announced its 32-inch 7680x4320 UltraSharp UP3218K monitor at CES 2017 and started selling the device months after.
