LG Display creates 88 inch 8K OLED

LG 8K OLED

LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available. 8K is 16 times more than the high-definition resolution of 1920×1080, and four times more than the ultra high-definition (UHD) resolution of 3840×2160.

The product will be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The image of the TV released by LG is also equally stunning, to say the least, though the only problem here - if it can be so said - is that there isn't any 8K content to view on the TV just yet.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES.

The panel is the largest and highest-resolution OLED panel on the market and is a big upgrade over the manufacturer's 77-inch 4K OLED display. Naturally, there's little point LG offering this set for sale, given the lack of 8K content available right now, but it could be a sign of things to come from the firm, farther down the line.

Burn-in is a fact of life for OLED displays, including the iPhone X's Super Retina display.

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo celebrates Noon Year's Eve
Megan Lojewski said she and her family didn't plan on staying up until midnight so the event was a good option. She said the event is special because it makes sure the children that attend can celebrate the holiday, too.

LG Display is now the sole large-size OLED display maker in the world.

"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.

For the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple has embedded a series of futuristic features and design elements.

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. Look for businesses to use these to impress their recruits and partners.
