Different technologies such as 4K and HDR resolution are finally becoming mainstream, thanks to the advancements made in the recent past. Much like the CES in the past, companies like LG and Samsung are set to display some next-gen TVs that push the boundaries of display. If this turns out to be true, then it will be the first time that LG will be launching one of the largest and the highest-resolution OLED panel in the market at the moment. You can still expect to see a few 8K screens on display at CES 2018 next week, however, and this new 88-inch panel from LG Display will be the cream of the crop. Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard.
LG will be showing off their new 88-inch 8K OLED display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this month.
A good point from this is that 4K OLED panels will now be cheaper and more and more people will be going towards 4K. While this combination is now available for all major brands including the likes of LG, Sony, and Panasonic, except for Samsung, which has shifted its focus on QLED TVs. As of now, further details regarding the 8K TV are unknown and we'll have a better knowledge about its specifications once it goes official at CES 2018.
It is pushing its own QLED TV, which puts a quantum dot sheet over an LCD to achieve a higher resolution. As the LG's biggest rival Samsung has changed its strategy of making OLED displays, the Korean manufacturer is expanding its reach to other diverse markets in Asia, especially Japan. This not only includes televisions panels, but OLED panels for smartphones as well.
That said, LG's television is more notable for its technology and the simple fact that it exists; CES is about practical technology and a little bit of showboating, and LG's 88-inch 8K display is in the latter camp for 99 percent of the people that will get to sit down and take a look.
