LGD unveils 88-inch 8K OLED display

02 January, 2018, 11:55 | Author: Shannon Newton

"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".

LG Display has showcased a new 88-inch OLED display with an 8K resolution, ahead of the upcoming CES 2018 show in Las Vegas.

Raiders surprisingly fire coach in huge Jon Gruden sign
After going 7-9 in his first year, the team jumped to 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs. John Pagano, who was on the staff as assistant head coach-defense, took over as coordinator.

With this in mind, we'd absolutely love to give the new LG 8K OLED TV a spin with some high dynamic range 4K Blu-ray disc movies, and preferably with Dolby Vision HDR running just to spice things up even further on exquisite detail. Unfortunately, not much else is known about this TV. Currently, the 4K resolution TV model is offered by brands like LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic but all these companies use disPlays manufactured by LG Display. LG's 8K television will be around 7680×4320 pixels in resolution and for the attendees at CES, it will be definitely one of the major attractions at the show.

But OLED emits light by itself, so it doesn't lower luminance when the aperture ratio is lower, and is therefore best for 8K resolution, the company said. Now 4K television sets might have just started gaining popularity, especially in markets like India, but LG it seems is ready to take it to the next level. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels a year ago, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game.

MacDonald also says that walk-ins are always welcome especially around this time of year, and says most people are in and out within an hour.

Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a Micro LED TV at the trade show.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream.

United Nations chief condemns attack on church near Cairo
A Muslim mob stabs 27-year old Coptic Christian Fam Khalaf to death in the southern City of Minya over a personal feud. The firing was retaliated by the security forces and the resulting exchange of fire caused at least five casualties.

As we said, this is an experimental 4K TV and really exists more for the sheer public relations value it creates, so don't hold your breath for 8K OLED hitting the shelves or Amazon listings any time soon in 2018. This not only includes televisions panels, but OLED panels for smartphones as well.
