LG to debut world's first 88-in 8K OLED at CES 2018

LG to debut world's first 88-in 8K OLED at CES 2018

On the other hand, Samsung Display, which is the primary supplier of OLED panel for Apple, is going to supply 5.8-inch or 6-inch OLED panels.

8K TVs are expected to gain commercial viability by 2020. Plus, if LG's new set ever does reach store shelves, it will likely cost as much as a new Miata; LG now sells a 77-inch OLED TV that's only 4K for a whopping $20,000.

There is no doubt that despite being a little late to the OLED game, Apple has impressed its customers with one of the best OLED displays on the market today.

LG will showcase the 8K display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week and said that the 8K panel offers higher resolution without compromising brightness. This year, we saw a shakeup to the iPhone lineup with the introduction of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X- the first iPhone to sport an OLED display. 4K is the standard at the moment, and much of our content isn't even in that resolution yet, but LG is thinking ahead, since 8K will likely become the next standard. LG will also be the sole supplier of these panels for Sony and Panasonic TV manufacturing companies.

LG recently came second in WitsView's Q3 global ranking of TV vendors by shipments, surpassed only by Samsung, who continue to focus on making a QLED a more viable alternative to OLED for prospective premium TV buyers. Don't be shocked if similarly extravagant TVs are unveiled from other manufacturers at CES. It's a chance to mark the company as the leader in crisp, amazing, jaw-dropping OLED TVs.

With over 33 million pixels, the 8K TV will have four times the pixel density of 4K and 16 times more pixels than 1080p.

While the device in this patent appears to function more like a tablet, Samsung is also working on a smartphone with a flexible display. LG says OLED is less susceptible to this than LED LCDs, although with LCD screens offering significantly higher brightness than OLED, there will probably be a levelling in potential performance.
