LG to unveil 88-inch 8K OLED display

The world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display boasts 33 million pixels- four times as many pixels as current 4K UHD TVs- although so far there is very little 8K content to watch on

This display is going to be the largest and the highest resolution in OLED panel until now. With that measurement, LG still won't beat the world's biggest display in a TV, but it definitely seats atop in terms of largest OLED panel. However, to ensure that LG remains ahead in the race, they continue to ramp up their OLED production capacity.

The television, which measures a huge 88 inches across in its display, packs a total of 7780 x 4320 pixels into all that screen real estate.

4K "ultra HD" resolution is finally in a place where it's somewhat affordable for consumers around the world, which can only mean one thing: 8K is coming.

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. Brands like LG, Sony and Panasonic already offer 77-inch TVs.

Its main rival Samsung Display has shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs.

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.

With over 33 million pixels at their disposal, the TV would certainly provide users with plenty of resolution to enjoy. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR.

There is now no information regarding the price of the 8K display, although LG said it would reveal more information about the panel at CES 2018. "Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time - in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government", the report by Engadget reads.
