LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is ready for CES 2018

The LG offering is both the largest and highest resolution OLED panel ever concocted and will be one of the centrepiece TV's at CES 2018.

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.

LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available. We're now seeing a growth 4K TVs and HDR content that is slowly but surely going mainstream. Then, of course, there is also the issue of the lack of 8K content that one will still have to deal with, something that isn't likely to ease anytime soon given that the content makers have only just started to stable out in the 4K space. For instance, 88-inch 4K LED TV will set you back by $20,000 and you can imagine how much expensive the new LG 8K TV will be.

LG Electronics takes a lot of pride in its display sub-division as they churn out the best displays available in the market.

The development further underlines LG's commitment to OLED while Samsung is turning away from the technology to focus on QLED development.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES.

"The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", said In-Byung Kang, executive vice president and chief technology officer at LGD.

Having said that, we have few details about the TV right now but we are expecting more information to be shared during the launch event. This not only includes televisions panels, but OLED panels for smartphones as well.

All in all, LG's announcement comes at a time when the company is making a bigger push into OLED panels and ramping up its operations.
