While the 4K and HDR are getting mainstream and so, LG pushed a step further by bringing in the Oled technology to 8K. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, the Korean manufacturer LG kicked it off with its new 88-inch 8K OLED display, which is both the largest and the highest-resolution OLED panel till date.
The CES are generally big news delivering platforms for technology and gadget firms, and this year is no different too because LG has successfully attracted all the spotlight. After teasing a huge 34-inch 5K monitor, the company has now unveiled a new 88-Inch Oled TV with an 8K display ahead of the official launch at CES 2018. The television revealed at CES is so far the biggest and the highest-resolution OLED-display available in the market so far. The 88-inch OLED screen with an amazing resolution of 7680×4320 pixels from LG, this is world’s largest TV resolution ever, because till now, resolutions were limited to 4K or Ultra HD.
LG’s new entre is certainly the show of strength at CES 2018 as the company competes against the likes of Samsung and Panasonic, among others. It is believed that LG has made huge investments to ensure it continues to have the upper hand in market by ramping up OLED production capacity, and now the world’s largest OLED television. While the price of the new LG television has not been revealed yet, but Samsung has an 88-inch TV with 4K and it costs about $20,000 (Rs 127,4500) so the LG 88-inch OLED will surely burn a hole in your pocket.
The 88-inch TV is perhaps the largest OLED TV because so far, the largest OLED screen size was 77 inches, and it “only” came in 4K. But, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels last year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. But since Samsung claimed that their QLED TVs are better than OLED TVs, it is tough to decide about who has the higher hand – Samsung or LG. But as of now, we know what LG and Samsung, among others, have in store for us once CES 2018 kicks off starting January 9.
