South Korea's biggest display panel manufacturer is apparently gearing up to launch the industry's first 88-inch 8K display at the annual trade show.
However, LG will be unveiling some more products at the event. The company has claimed that its QLED TVs are better than OLED TVs. Till date, the highest resolution available on TVs has been 4K or Ultra HD which most of the flagship models come with. Second, it's the highest-resolution OLED screen ever, with native resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels. The TV also sports a price tag of $20,000 but is of 4K resolution only.
This new TV practically puts LG on top of the OLED display race, at least as far as big panels go.
South Korean technology major LG known for its prowess in LED display development has come up with a new giant super high-resolution TV with state-of-the-art technology that is for sure going to take the television viewing experience to a whole new level. Interestingly enough, while this kind of setup is offered by multiple tech companies, including Sony and Panasonic, they all get their panels from LG.More news: Today's Google Doodle is an Ode to the Winter Solstice
However, the 8K OLED TV will not be hitting stores anytime soon, as the company is expected wait it out for 8K resolution content to enter the mainstream market.
ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR.
This announcement comes at a time when LG is ramping up its OLED operations and increasing its production capacity. The recent development in this scenario is the construction of a manufacturing plant in China's Guangzhou city.
