LG to unleash new 88-inch and 8K TV at CES
Do you have room for an 88-inch television in your den or man cave?
LG's new 88-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) 8K resolution television is the world's first and largest of its category. It boasts the highest resolution with 33 million pixels (7680×4320p) – 16 times more than full HD (1920×1080p) and four times more than Ultra HD aka 4K (3840×2160p).
"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," In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display, said in a statement.
And there will be content available you can watch on this beast. Recently, 4K/Ultra HD and HDR videos began to stream on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, among other online service providers.Furthermore, the price of LG 8K OLED TV, though not officially announced, will sure not come cheap. For instance, 88-inch 4K LED TV will set you back by $20,000 and you can imagine how much expensive the new LG 8K TV will be.Having said that, there is no harm in seeing and experience the TV from a distance and as it happens, a lucky few will be able to get a glimpse of the LG 8K OLED TV at the LG Display booth in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 (January 9-12), Las Vegas.
