We're now seeing a growth 4K TVs and HDR content that is slowly but surely going mainstream.
LGD said it uses its in-house innovations in panel design and fine processing to create 8K resolution OLED displays.
We saw 4K and HDR getting popular in 2017 and now as we enter 2018 LG is all set to launch world's first 8K OLED display at CES 2018. LG has teased the 88-inch 8K display and we will know more about it next week at CES.
In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.
The 88-inch OLED display will be showcased at LGD's booth (#N 228) in the North Hall Meeting Room of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018. The entertainment industry is just catching up with support for 4K and will take a bit longer to rally behind 8K at this rate. LG was apparently far too excited about its latest creation to wait another week to unveil it, so the company's display arm on Monday unveiled the most impressive display panel the world has ever seen - on paper at least. Large, crisp displays are certainly one of the better ways to watch your favorite movies and TV shows, but even the most avid 4K proponent might agree that anything above that is approaching overkill territory. While this combination is now available for all major brands including the likes of LG, Sony, and Panasonic, except for Samsung, which has shifted its focus on QLED TVs.
Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a Micro LED TV at the trade show. The firm said that it used OLED for its new display because it does not involve additional cost to make.
As such, if price alone isn't the factor, the lack of quality content shot in native 8K resolution should be another reason not to opt for the TV just yet. As the LG's biggest rival Samsung has changed its strategy of making OLED displays, the Korean manufacturer is expanding its reach to other diverse markets in Asia, especially Japan.
The television, which measures a huge 88 inches across in its display, packs a total of 7780 x 4320 pixels into all that screen real estate.
