LG's 8K Prototype Is Future Of TV

As of now further details regarding the 8K TV’s price and specifications are expected to be revealed soon once it goes official at CES 2018

A report from last month revealed that despite the rumors that both Samsung and LG could be involved in the iPhone X's display, LG confirmed that they did not supply any OLEDs to Apple for the 2017 iPhone X. According to several reports, LG is expected supply over 15 million OLED panels for the 6.5-inch model, though it is now negotiating with Apple for additional supply according to an Electronic Times report.

LG, one of the biggest names in the TV landscape, is set to announce a large OLED TV with the highest resolution of its kind thus far. Currently, the market features a wide range of sizes for 8K resolution, but this would clearly and cleanly take the title of being the largest OLED display panel that features that high of a resolution. Even if you were to pick up LG's very big display for a not-so-insignificant price, you'll be upscaling 4K content at best.

And even if companies aren't ready to squeeze that many pixels on a screen, HDMI 2.1 should give us lots of other drool-worthy extras, like variable frame rate support.

LG will showcase the 8K display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week and said that the 8K panel offers higher resolution without compromising brightness. The 88-inch 8K OLED display will be on hand at the LG booth and shows what we might have in our living room years down the road when 8K content is readily available.

As rumors circulate about Apple's intentions for the 2018 crop of iPhones, LG has reportedly been picked to manufacture 6.5-inch OLED displays for the company.

Once unveiled, this will largest and highest-resolution OLED TV in the market, Engadget reports.

Measuring in at a world-first 88 inches, the television is more of a technological showcase than a commercial product for now.

In other words, this experimental new OLED UHD TV is an absolute monster of advanced technology.

With over 33 million pixels, the 8K TV will have four times the pixel density of 4K and 16 times more pixels than 1080p.

LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well.

OLED displays also remain comparatively light when the resolution is kicked up, whereas LCD screens can be anticipated to increase in weight.
