LG Showcases The World's Largest (88-inch) & Highest Resolution (8K) OLED Display

  • LG 8K OLED

"As tipped, LG is set to use next weeks CES 2018, to roll out an 8K 88" OLED TV. And, as each pixel is significantly smaller than their UHD or Full HD counterparts, the biggest challenge is ensuring they can emit the same levels of brightness.

LG hasn't announced a price of its upcoming 88-inch 8K OLED TV, but I'm sure it will be in the holy-balls-its-expensive price range.

The place was held by LG's 77-inch TV, which only featured 4K resolution. The show starts on 9 January, with press conferences and coverage to be found on Pocket-lint from a few days beforehand. The latter is the company that makes the OLED televisions you can buy off the shelves, such as the B7, C7 and E7.

LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display. Naturally, there's little point LG offering this set for sale, given the lack of 8K content available right now, but it could be a sign of things to come from the firm, farther down the line. LG's 77-inch 4K OLED display, the OLED77G6P, now costs a mere $20,000. The 88-in surpasses the current largest OLED screen by 11-in and massively ups its resolution to 7680 x 4320. This left LG has the biggest name in the high-resolution, large screen OLED display market. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels a year ago, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. Its closest rival, Samsung, has already moved from OLEDs to QLEDs, short for Quantum LED, for its TVs, leaving LG as the undisputed champ.

With over 33 million pixels at their disposal, the TV would certainly provide users with plenty of resolution to enjoy. The new facility in Guangzhou, China, was recently just approved by the Korean government as part of the two countries' attempts to improve relations. The image of the TV released by LG is also equally stunning, to say the least, though the only problem here - if it can be so said - is that there isn't any 8K content to view on the TV just yet.
