LG to lift veil on massive 88-inch UHD TV at CES

The new LG 8K 88-inch OLED TV looks gorgeous.                  LG

When looked at from the side the screen is super thin and barely even visible.

If you were planning to buy an OLED TV but nothing out there was big enough for you, LG has a treat: The world's first 8K, 88-inch OLED display.

A consumer version of the LG 88-inch 8K panel has not been detailed, but the display will be demoed at CES next week. In case you fancy doing some math, 8K resolution means four times the 4K resolution. This year, we saw a shakeup to the iPhone lineup with the introduction of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X- the first iPhone to sport an OLED display. He'll be in Vegas to see LG's new hotness next week, so perhaps we'll have more details about the display then. LG will also be the sole supplier of these panels for Sony and Panasonic TV manufacturing companies. They also wrestle over Google's Pixel 2 - Samsung supplies the Pixel 2's AMOLED display, LG the Pixel 2 XL's P-OLED display. Meanwhile, rival Samsung has moved on to QLED TVs.


LG says OLED panels are ideal for high-resolution displays because shrinking aperture ratios, which impact how much light from an LCD backlight ultimately makes it out of the display, makes OLEDs superior to LCDs as resolutions increase. The two companies have sued each other multiple times over alleged stealing of OLED and LCD technology. For pointers on this, LG already offers a 77-inch TV with 4K OLED display for more than $20,000. The native resolution of the huge display is 7680 x 4320 giving it 16 times more resolution than full HD (1920 x 1080).

LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well. While OLED TVs remain significantly more expensive than their LCD counterparts, their vibrant colors, low lag, and flawless blacks are appealing to videophiles and gamers alike.

'OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets'.
