LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display at CES 2018

LG Display has developed a 7,680x4,320 8K resolution 88-inch OLED display, the company announced. Normally when electronics manufacturers go for higher resolution they try to reduce the pixel size but this in turn affects the aperture ratio and this reduces the brightness of the display.

"The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry".

The 88-inch OLED display will be showcased at LGD's booth (#N 228) in the North Hall Meeting Room of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018. LCD will need a stronger backlight to achieve this, and therefore will increase costs and power consumption, it added.

Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a Micro LED TV at the trade show. LG's 8K TV will be a show of strength at CES 2018 as the company competes against the likes of Samsung and Panasonic, among others.

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

Likewise, Petersen is reticent to bring up the 2007 Fiesta Bowl , when his Boise State team defeated Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime. In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington , everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for.

Besides the usual advantages of true blacks, vibrant colours and wide viewing angles, OLED's self-emissive display characteristics also allow for higher resolution without compromising brightness and design.

Burn-in is a fact of life for OLED displays, including the iPhone X's Super Retina display.

8K resolution television is the world's first and largest of its category. In addition, OLEDs can emit light on their own without backlights so can be made very thin.

In a statement, In-Byung Kang, executive vice president and chief technology officer at LG Display, said: "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". Even if you were to pick up LG's enormous display for a not-so-insignificant price, you'll be upscaling 4K content at best. Look for businesses to use these to impress their recruits and partners.
