LG announces world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED display

It seems like LG is now all buckled up for the upcoming CES 2018 as they finally unveiled its world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED display that will have an appearance on the said trade show.

The new panel has a resolution of 7680 x 4320, which is double the vertical and horizontal resolution of the usual 4K panel and is four times as many pixels as 4K TVs that you usually see on the market. LG, however, didn’t disclose any information regarding the TV’s price, release timeline, or any further technical details.

We can only expect that this one is going to be twice as expensive as LG’s current 77-inch OLED TV with 4K resolution which costs a whopping $20,000 (~Php996,800).

    Ouch, need 8k contents to lap up the power of this screen and it wouldn’t make sense to buy and collect movies in HD anymore, as they are getting phased out by this advancement, and it would rather wise to rent them online instead, but the problem is the internet service providers are having a hard time to catch up with the pace, or if you can bring yourself to pay the premium service to watch and enjoy them in UHD, which is of course an another ouch…
