LG’s New 88-Inch 8K OLED TV Is Absolutely Gorgeous, But?

LG Electronics is fully-ready to showcase world’s first 8K 88-inch OLED TV at upcoming CES 2018. It should be a stunner, but don’t worry about adopting 8K anytime soon. You’ll probably never own this gorgeous gadget. Because?

The world is only just starting to get grips with 4K display and content, and Apple already giving you a chance to experience its LG made 5K monitors. With the former arguably having taken a much better hold in the marketplace than the latter.

4K TVs and computer monitors are commonplace right now. But that is not stopping the folks at LG from forging on, though, the company has taken the wraps off of its brand new 88-inch 8K OLED display TV for the first time.

Resolution-wise? Boasting no less than 33 million pixels of 7680 x 4320, this giant has 16 times more pixels than the standard 1080p display and four times that of an ultra-HD 4K offering. And yes, that’s a lot of pixels to push around, and LG made it possible by reducing the size of each pixel aperture to allow for such a huge resolution without having to also compromise on brightness and sharpness.

That is ok with the aforementioned pixel resolution, but the fact is that, what about 8K content production? We are only getting content of 4K in a limited amount, and with 8K display already incoming, producers should think about that now onwards. The display is also an OLED one, meaning that it does not need a backlight and allows for a super-slim profile – which is important when you have something of a screen so…massive.

“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 LG Display. “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.”

As said, there’s a limited market for such a huge display, especially at 8K resolution but that will not stop any of us from lusting after the thing. About the availability, we don’t know how much it is or when it will arrive – LG Display’s PR website does not appear to be functional at the moment, but we can rest fairly certain that this new innovation will be far from affordable.
