LG Announces First 88-inch 8K OLED Display Ahead of CES 2018

LG Display has revealed its latest innovation in OLED tech, announcing the development of an 88-inch OLED panel with an 8K resolution.

However, that doesn't mean Apple will completely do away with Samsung's OLED screens. LG Display is likely to produce the OLED display for a larger variant of expected screen size 6.5-inch, while Samsung Display will be producing the screens for the smaller variant of 5.8- or 6-inch display. There are no details yet on the other specs of LG's 88-inch panel with 8K resolution TV.

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. This year however, they are bringing in an 88-inch 8K OLED display.

Testing kits can also be purchased at the American Lung Association website or by calling 1-800-LUNG-USA. If the follow-up tests confirm elevated radon concentrations, then radon mitigation is recommended.

But that was the same when 4K displays were forayed into the market by vendors. LG's 77-inch TV costs a whopping $20,000.

If one goes by the resolution, this will be the highest resolution OLED display and the largest one ever. In addition, the set uses an OLED panel which is key in allowing LG to develop a higher res screen without sacrificing brightness.

Its main rival Samsung Display has shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs. Even so, LG unveiling the TV during CES is key. The two companies have sued each other multiple times over alleged stealing of OLED and LCD technology.

Freezing Rain this Afternoon Before Snow Tonight-Saturday AM
Flooding is possible in the Northeast because of heavy rain and melting ice on rivers, the National Weather Service warned . Snow is expected from Friday evening, and will continue into Friday night , tapering off Saturday morning.

As we said, this is an experimental 4K TV and really exists more for the sheer public relations value it creates, so don't hold your breath for 8K OLED hitting the shelves or Amazon listings any time soon in 2018.

LG Display quickly prepared for mass-production so that it will be able to supply Gen 6 OLED panels to Apple starting in Q4 of this year. Apple has also managed to tune the display the offer up a heightened color balance, and no ghosting or burn in issues.
