LGD unveils 88-inch 8K OLED display

If LG is to be asked, however, there is one more new territory to conquer: 8K.

"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.

Its main rival Samsung Display has shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs. So LG chose to do everyone else better by unveiling an 88-inch, OLED Display, 8K TV.

This, if not the size alone, makes one wonder if the new TV is just to showcase the technological might of the company or if it is really meant for a commercial launch anytime soon. Besides, it's also the TV with the largest count of pixels, as LG's upcoming beast will be packing an 8K resolution.

Supermoon to Mark First Day of 2018
Supermoons hang around all night, are easy to see and are not damaging to the eyes, no matter how long you moon-gaze. One side of a moon (apogee) is generally 50,000 kilometres further away from Earth than the other (perigee).

Furthermore, the price of LG 8K OLED TV, though not officially announced, will sure not come cheap.

The product has 33 million pixels (7680 × 4320 pixels), 16 times the resolution of a full HD display (1920 × 1080) and quadruple that of a UHD display (3840 × 2160). The 32-inch 4K monitor will be the first from LG to offer the company's advanced Nano IPS technology, which relies on "nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths" and thus improve the visual experience on the display. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR.

The image quality of the jewellery displayed on the demo LG OLED TV model is the crispiest and clearest it can get on a big screen.

LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well. The recent development in this scenario is the construction of a manufacturing plant in China's Guangzhou city.
