"LG Set To Reveal 88" 8K OLED TV At CES 2018

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

There is now no information regarding the price of the 8K display, although LG said it would reveal more information about the panel at CES 2018. An 88-inch OLED panel is the largest OLED display to date.

According to a report published by Engadget, the Korean manufacturer is speculated to launch their upcoming 88-inch 8K OLED display soon enough.

In other words, it might make more sense to take the tens of thousands of dollars you'd blow on an 8K television and instead buy the biggest 4K display you can get your hands on.

In fact, World Health Organization will include " gaming disorder " in its global classification of diseases for 2018. Although it's rare, gamers have died during marathon gaming sessions, according to the Washington Post .

Furthermore, the price of LG 8K OLED TV, though not officially announced, will sure not come cheap. From what we have heard so far, the display boasts 33 million pixels, four times that of 3,840x2,160 ultra high definition and 16 times more pixels than 1,920x1,080 full high definition. Currently, the 4K resolution TV model is offered by brands like LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic but all these companies use disPlays manufactured by LG Display. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level.

"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets", Kang added. Its closest rival, Samsung, has already moved from OLEDs to QLEDs, short for Quantum LED, for its TVs, leaving LG as the undisputed champ.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream.

Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time - in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government.
