LG announces world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display

LG Display's 88-Inch 8K OLED TV To Stoke Geek Lust At CES 2018

However, that doesn't mean Apple will completely do away with Samsung's OLED screens. The ET report said LG Display will supply Apple with OLED panels for its rumored 6.5-inch model, while Samsung will focus on the 5.8-inch or 6-inch OLED displays.

While the recently authorized ATSC 3.0 television standard targets 4K UHD as its top resolution, nothing in the next-gen TV standard would preclude future iterations from supporting higher resolutions, such as 8K, according to a source familiar with the matter. All we really know at this point is that the set offers 8K resolution and measures 88 inches.

Just as the HDR and 4K are heading to mainstream, the ambitious peeps at LG Display have also been thoroughly consumed in shoving its technology of OLED to 8K.

Big fancy screens are one thing, but LG hasn't actually announced a product using this 88-inch panel yet. This may be true, but the cost improvements clearly aren't all that large - LG's 77-inch 4K OLED TV, which you can now purchase, is $20,000. It is expected to take the lead in the TV display market against tech giants, like Samsung.

Numerous TV manufacturers including LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic have sourced their large OLED panels from LG Display itself.

With over 33 million pixels, the 8K TV will have four times the pixel density of 4K and 16 times more pixels than 1080p. You can even non OLED television displays in much greater sizes. While OLED TVs remain significantly more expensive than their LCD counterparts, their vibrant colors, low lag, and flawless blacks are appealing to videophiles and gamers alike.
