  • LG to show off 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES

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 all set to wow consumers with some surprises at CES this year.

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. In addition, LG's 8K TV would only be upscaling 4K contents are we are yet to witness native 8K contents whether in physical form or digital. Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard. Unfortunately, not much else is known about this TV. The 88-in surpasses the current largest OLED screen by 11-in and massively ups its resolution to 7680 x 4320. The latter is the company that makes the OLED televisions you can buy off the shelves, such as the B7, C7 and E7. Currently, the 4K resolution TV model is offered by brands like LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic but all these companies use disPlays manufactured by LG Display. At CES 2017, Samsung unveiled three QLED TVs - the Q9, Q8 and Q7.

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.

As Engadget notes, the OLED display is likely to have super-rich blacks and great contrast levels, and colors should retain their intensity at viewing angles that would otherwise be problematic for LED-backlit televisions.

The company will showcase its 8K OLED and other new products at CES 2018, the world's largest consumer electronics and IT show which will run in Las Vegas from January 9 to 12.

LG is keeping quiet about the panel, and it does not seem the sort of product where you have to consider the price. "OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with ideal black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles", LG added.
