LG Display has announced the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TVLG Display has presented the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV. The previous record breaker - a 77-inch 4K OLED TV dates back to last year and is an LG model as well. An 8K resolution (7680 x 4320 pixels) means that the unit has 33 million pixels - that's 4x the number of pixels on current 4K TVs (3840 x 2160) and 16x higher than the number of pixels on FHD TVs (1920 x 1080 pixels). Due to the OLED technology, LG has managed to create a very thin panel for such a big TV set. According to In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display, "The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED. 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's 88-inch 8K OLED TV will be showcased at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas this week. Pricing and availability remain unknown. Usually, such announcements are dedicated to demonstrating achievements or technology breakthroughs and commercial products might take even a year to become reality.Source
