LG unveils 88-inch 8K TV ahead of CES

LG unveils 88-inch 8K TV ahead of CES

As LG Display, the sole large-size OLED display maker in the world, uses its in-house innovations in panel design and fine processing to create 8K resolution OLED displays, the company is set to lead the extra-large and ultra-high resolution panel market.

However, that doesn't mean Apple will completely do away with Samsung's OLED screens. 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.

Even in the photos of LG's product, displayed on my PC monitor, the new 88-inch 8K TV looks stunning. Expect an nearly exclusive line-up of 4K TVs, with 1080p models relegated to the bargain basement - there could be a few budget models kicking around the show, but they won't be getting much attention from the crowds. 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. "Samsung's rival 88" QLED display costs about $20,000.

LG is scheduled to launch its 8K 88-inch OLED TV at CES next week, which boasts of a resolution of 7680 x 4320.

LG Display wants to quickly prepare itself for mass-production so that it will be able to supply Gen 6 OLED panels to Apple starting in Q4 of this year. It's a chance to mark the company as the leader in crisp, amazing, jaw-dropping OLED TVs.

Though 4K is still in the process of supplanting Full HD as the home TV resolution of choice, manufacturers are already preparing 8K systems for release. Given that a smaller 77-inch 4K OLED now sells for around £20,000, you can probably draw your own conclusions about retail potential.

Samsung will reportedly remain on board as the main supplier for Apple's smaller OLED displays.

OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with flawless black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles. Meanwhile concerns about OLED display durability, panel fade, screen burn and so on are being addressed by new technology introduced largely by LG.
