As expected, the major tech giants have started teasing their big announcements way before the commencement of the CES event. LG Display has showcased the world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED display which boasts the highest resolution of 33 million pixels (7680 x 4320 pixels). It means that it is 16 times bigger than FHD (1920 x 1080) and four times bigger than UHD (3840 x 2160).
Since the OLEDs are self-emissive, they are less affected by aperture ratio. This is very ideal for 8K panels and moreover, the self-emissive OLEDs will not require any backlight units which in a way will help them to maintain a slimmer design. The gadget provides wider viewing angles, perfect black and more life-like colors. The company said that it made use of its in-house innovations in panel design and fine processing to develop 8K resolution OLED displays.
LG Display said,
The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality.
The company is now all set to unveil this massive 88-inch 8K OLED display at the upcoming CES 2018 event which is set to take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in a few days. You might want to read on What to expect from CES 2018 to know more about the event.
