LG showed the world's first 8K OLED display

While 4K-TVs fill the market, manufacturers are working on the next generation of devices. Thus, LG Display will bring to the exhibition CES 2018 a huge 88-inch OLED-panel with a record 8K-resolution of 7680x4320 pixels.

Twice the first

The company's latest development is also the largest display on organic light-emitting diodes. So far, LG's lineup has had OLED screens with a diagonal of up to 77 inches and "only" 4K-resolution. The 8K format offers four times as many pixels (33 million!), Although at 88 inches the difference in image clarity between 8K and 4K UHD can only be seen at a distance of less than a meter.

LG also at the CES 2016 presented the 98-inch 8K-TV LG UH9800, and soon you can expect a model based on OLED (so far only the display is shown). Among the advantages of the new technology is a higher maximum brightness, since in backlit screens, with an increase in resolution, the area of ​​the pixel grid that does not transmit light significantly increases.

By the way, Samsung promised to show on CES 2018 its 8K-TV on quantum dots - QLED. The official announcement of the model will take place in the very near future.
