From introducing three new work robots to portable Bluetooth speakers and its latest artificial intelligence (AI) speaker, LG has plenty of announcements ahead of this year’s CES event.
Now The South Korean giant is planning to introduce the world’s largest 88-inch 8K OLED display, according to Engadget.
LG’s latest TV display boasts 7,680 x 4,320 pixel resolution (33 million pixels), but that’s all of the details LG has shared in terms of specs. Since it’s an 8K OLED display, we can expect high quality TV, deep black levels, and extremely bright colors. And you won’t have to deal with any of the issues that come with an LED/LCD TV: Like, problems with blurriness when watching football, especially the grass.
We’re not sure how much LG’s new 88-inch 8K OLED display will cost, but we can expect it will be expensive for most consumers. In fact, LG’s largest existing OLED display is 77-inches with a heavy price tag of $20,000, and that’s only in 4K.
“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,” said In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display. “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 will be showcasing its largest 88-inch 8K OLED display at CES 2018, which kicks off on Jan. 9 in Las Vegas.
