LG unveils world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display

LG-OLED

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. We've reviewed OLED 4K HDR TVs here at 4K.com repeatedly and nearly without variation, our analysis of them has been exceptionally positive.

Samsung used to be a contender in this arena, as well, but the South Korean giant has since shifted its focus on QLED display.

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 TV also sports a price tag of $20,000 but is of 4K resolution only.

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. 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. 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. Its closest rival, Samsung, has already moved from OLEDs to QLEDs, short for Quantum LED, for its TVs, leaving LG as the undisputed champ.

"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets", Kang added.

However, the 8K OLED TV will not be hitting stores anytime soon, as the company is expected wait it out for 8K resolution content to enter the mainstream market. The company has also stated that it will be making investments in large-sized OLED production in Guangzhou, China.

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