LG to Introduce World’s First 8K OLED TV at IFA 2018
The television pixel density race is about to heat up in a major way. We’ve heard of and seen a few different manufacturers get to market with 8K products, the next step up in this competition for the most true-to-life picture. Sharp has rolled out their 8K offering in just about every market except the U.S. Samsung showed off an 8K set that could upscale content. And FIBBR rolled out an incredibly powerful 8K-HDR fiber optic HDMI cable.
To date, though, one of the biggest names in displays has remained relatively mum on the 8K front—until now.
In a statement released this week, LG Electronics said it plans to introduce the world’s first 8K OLED TV at IFA 2018 in Berlin. The company, which has long dominated the display market with its OLED technology, plans to show an 88-inch 8K LG OLED TV that features more than 33 million self-emitting pixels (8K offer 7680 x 4320 resolution) that produce “unmatched contrast ratio.”
