LG develops 88-inch 8K OLED display

Having said that, there is no harm in seeing and experience the TV from a distance and as it happens, a lucky few will be able to get a glimpse of the LG 8K OLED TV at the LG Display booth in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 (January 9-12), Las Vegas. Much like the CES in the past, companies like LG and Samsung are set to display some next-gen TVs that push the boundaries of display. This left LG has the biggest name in the high-resolution, large screen OLED display market. If this turns out to be true, then it will be the first time that LG will be launching one of the largest and the highest-resolution OLED panel in the market at the moment.

In other words, this experimental new OLED UHD TV is an absolute monster of advanced technology.

As with the TV, there is no information available with the pricing. From what we have heard so far, the display boasts 33 million pixels, four times that of 3,840x2,160 ultra high definition and 16 times more pixels than 1,920x1,080 full high definition. At $20,000, the company's 77-inch 4K product is already beyond what most consumers would be willing to pay for. While this combination is now offered to consumers by the likes of LG Electronics, Sony and Panasonic, they all source their large OLED panels from LG Display. 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. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level.

LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well.
