The Korean tech LG has announced Sunday an 88-inch 8K OLED television with a 7680 x 4320 resolution. Is four times that of 4K, and 16 times more than the standard full-HD, 1,080x1,920-pixel resolution. It’s both the largest and highest resolution OLED panel ever built in the world. It will be exposed on the LG stand during the annual Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show which begins on January 7.
LG says it has been able to reach the 8K resolution by reducing the size of each pixel and the aperture ratio. “The 8K OLED displays can also maintain their slimmer design, as the self-emissive OLEDs do not need backlight units.
The new LD display
LCDs with 8K resolution, however, inevitably get heavier and thicker because backlight units need to be placed directly behind the panels to achieve the same level of brightness and picture quality as 4K products” – was their own description. “OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with perfect black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles,” LG added. The 77-inch OLED television production costs are up to $20,000 right now. This product it’s clearly not intended for common individuals. A fact to know: the only way for an 8K television to show 8K content is if the content source is in 8K and for the instant there is not yet enough 4K content.
