The world is still getting used to 4K displays but that doesn't mean that tech giants are resting on their laurels. Always looking to get bigger and better, LG started the new year with a band by unveiling their massive 88-inch 8K OLED display. The living room centerpiece of the near future will be shown at CES in Las Vegas next week.
LG says that OLED technology makes ultra-high resolution possible without sacrificing image brightness, and while keeping power requirements low when compared to backlit LCD panels. And since OLED panels don't require backlighting, they can also be made super slim.
Beyond stating that the panel packs in some 33 million pixels across 88 diagonal inches (that's 7,680 x 4,320 resolution), LG Display isn't giving away anything more before the big CES reveal in the Las Vegas Convention Center's North Hall next week, but is promising that its 8K OLED display will offer unmatched picture quality with "perfect black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles."
Pricing info is yet to be released, but I'm sure that the price tag will ruin the average person's budget for tech gadgets.
