LG Preps an 88-Inch, 8K OLED TV for CES 2018

LG Preps an 88-Inch, 8K OLED TV 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.

Having said that, there is no harm in seeing and experience the TV from a distance and as it happens, a lucky few will be able to get a glimpse of the LG 8K OLED TV at the LG Display booth in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 (January 9-12), Las Vegas. Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard.

As such, if price alone isn't the factor, the lack of quality content shot in native 8K resolution should be another reason not to opt for the TV just yet. Unfortunately, not much else is known about this TV.

While LG has been in the game for a long time, the Korean consumer electronics giant has come up with the world's largest OLED TV resolution which is 7680×4320 pixels.

Plane crashes in Costa Rica killing at least 12 people
The US State Department said it was working with Costa Rican authorities to determine if the plane carried US citizens. The ministry released photographs of the crash site, showing the burning wreckage of the plane.

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

This, if not the size alone, makes one wonder if the new TV is just to showcase the technological might of the company or if it is really meant for a commercial launch anytime soon.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES. The image of the TV released by LG is also equally stunning, to say the least, though the only problem here - if it can be so said - is that there isn't any 8K content to view on the TV just yet. While this combination is now offered to consumers by the likes of LG Electronics, Sony and Panasonic, they all source their large OLED panels from LG Display. Even if you own an expensive 4K or UHD TV, the new display from LG puts it to shame as it has four times as many pixels.

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.
