LG is stepping up the display game with the unveiling of a world first 88-inch, 8K OLED display.
When compared to any other OLED display, it takes the cake for having the largest and the highest-resolution. Samsung, a major display competitor, also the Q9 which has an 88-inch display but only displays 4K video, and uses QLED technology instead of OLED.
LG also made mention that this OLED panel will feature super-rich blacks and much better contrast, with colors maintaining their richness no matter what angle you view the display from.
The problem with displays like this is the lack of content and pricing.
There are no TV shows or movies readily available in 8K format, nor do we foresee any coming out just yet as 8K resolutions are still in their infancy. 4K and HDR resolutions are only now becoming a thing, so we may not see any inklings of 8K content until way down to the end of the year, or even in 2019.
As for pricing, even though nothing is set of paper yet, we expect that this unit would easily run your credit card into the 10s of thousands of dollars.
Nonetheless, LG will be displaying this bad boy at the CES 2018 convention in a few days from now.
As OLED displays grow in size, there is also hope that smaller PC and TV display prices go down as a result.
