LG Reveals 88-inch 8K OLED Display: "8" Is a Magic Number

13 January 2018

LG Display is one of the companies interested in Apple's business, and a new report says that LG will provide 6.5-inch screens for the bigger iPhone X model supposed to launch this year.

Apple is also reportedly working on a bendable screen but given their reluctance to jump on new technology early (OLED screens for example only debuted with iPhones in 2017), it seems unlikely we will see flexible iPads anytime soon. Officially, the new TV's resolution measures at 7680 x 4320, which is twice the vertical resolution and twice the horizontal resolution of a typical 4K panel.

However, further reports reveal that the possible price hike of 8K displays, especially one that is 88-inches wide, might compliment by a more affordable price range for 4K displays. You can be sure that Samsung, LG's long-standing rival, will also be making its way to Las Vegas with some spectacular displays of its own. LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display.

While LG has recently confirmed that it has not produced a single OLED display panel for Apple yet, things are about the change this year.

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.

The place was held by LG's 77-inch TV, which only featured 4K resolution. Even so, LG unveiling the TV during CES is key.

As we said, this is an experimental 4K TV and really exists more for the sheer public relations value it creates, so don't hold your breath for 8K OLED hitting the shelves or Amazon listings any time soon in 2018.

"Back to that 88" OLED panel - what I wouldn't give to hook up a Steam Link/Controller to that beast. "OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with flawless black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles", LG added.
