0 29

The newly-unveiled largest OLED display in the world boasts the highest resolution with 33 million pixels (7680×4320) – 16 times more than FHD (1920×1080) and four times more than UHD (3840×2160).

The firm will show off the giant TV as CES 2018 in Las Vegas this month, and says it is the future of the ‘high-end premium TV market’.

However, LG has not said how much the TV will cost, or when it will be available.

‘The successful development of the world’s first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED,’ said In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display.

‘OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets.’

According to LG, the significance of ultra-high 8K resolution panel development is higher resolution without compromising brightness.

Higher resolution is achieved by reducing the size of each pixel.

The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create ‘more delicate images and unmatched picture quality’ LG says.

OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with perfect black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles.

However, LG has not said how much the TV will cost, or when it will be available.
