LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available.
While it is more a tech demo unit rather than a consumer product at present, the 88-incher shows what is capable with OLED technology and how it can be utilised in future, when 8K content becomes more readily available. 8K is 16 times more than the high-definition resolution of 1920×1080, and four times more than the ultra high-definition (UHD) resolution of 3840×2160.
LG Display said it has developed the world's first 88in 8K OLED display which will be showcased at the firm's booth at CES 2018 in Las Vegas this month. For pointers on this, LG already offers a 77-inch TV with 4K OLED display for more than $20,000. The show starts on 9 January, with press conferences and coverage to be found on Pocket-lint from a few days beforehand. The highest resolution on commercial TVs so far is 4K or Ultra HD, which is what TV makers are pushing in their flagship models. The company has claimed that its QLED TVs are better than OLED TVs.
LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display.
That means that the screen has a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels, a.k.a. 8K.
