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

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. So LG decided to do everyone else better by unveiling an 88-inch, OLED Display, 8K TV. This would make it the highest resolution screen at that size in the world, which is saying something. Unfortunately, not much else is known about this TV.

LG is set to showcase the tech product at CES 2018, which is when companies from all over the world attend to one-up each other with their own offerings. As Engadget notes, this new TV from the company has the biggest OLED display in the world with the highest resolution.

The previous record-holder for the biggest OLED display TV only touched 77 inches and it only featured 4K resolution. Interestingly enough, while this kind of setup is offered by multiple tech companies, including Sony and Panasonic, they all get their panels from LG.

Samsung used to be a contender in this arena, as well, but the South Korean giant has since shifted its focus on QLED display. This left LG has the biggest name in the high-resolution, large screen OLED display market.

With over 33 million pixels at their disposal, the TV would certainly provide users with plenty of resolution to enjoy. However, there are currently few to no 8K contents available in the market, PC Mag reports.

The LG unit could still certainly play 4K content and could easily do so with 1080p videos, as well. The fact of that matter is that there is still very few extreme definition content available in the market. Even 4K videos are still considerably dwarfed by their HD counterparts.

What’s more, LG’s 8K TV is likely to be considerably more expensive than anything on the market. At $20,000, the company’s 77-inch 4K product is already beyond what most consumers would be willing to pay for. The 88-inch 8K version is bound to be costlier.
