LG Unveils 88-Inch 8K OLED TV, First In The World

LG Display's 88-Inch 8K OLED TV To Stoke Geek Lust At CES 2018 LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

Samsung already has the rollable OLED display but we know it's not flawless yet.

The report further noted that LG Display will produce 6.5-inch OLED panels, while Samsung Display will produce the 5.8-inch or 6-inch OLED panels. 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. Given that a smaller 77-inch 4K OLED now sells for around £20,000, you can probably draw your own conclusions about retail potential.

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.

The CES arms race has begun, and the first entrant in the television competition is LG, which will be showing off an eye-popping 88-inch, 8K-resolution display at this year's show.

LG is shoving the displays of its TV to ever-greater resolutions, sizes, and also most probably prices for the forthcoming CES 2018. Regardless, the 88-inch TV is definitely an upgrade from its predecessor, the 77-inch panel with 4K resolution. Difference between actual amount of supplies and production capacity is huge considering the fact that LG Display does not have much experiences in producing Gen 6 flexible OLED panels and still has low production yield.

Measuring in at a world-first 88 inches, the television is more of a technological showcase than a commercial product for now. Don't be shocked if similarly extravagant TVs are unveiled from other manufacturers at CES.

The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry. If you are watching TV in a brighter environment you might find QLED TVs offer more "pop" than an OLED alternative.
