LG unveils 88-inch 8K OLED TV with advanced premium TV technologies

Author at TechGenyz Tech
LG 8K OLED TV

LG unveiled its first 8K 88-inch OLED TV at the IFA or Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (International radio exhibition Berlin, a.k.a. ‘Berlin Radio Show’) one of the oldest industrial exhibitions in Germany. The next-generation TV (7680×4320) features over 33 million self-emitting pixels to produce the unmatched contrast ratio and true blacks that define OLED TV’s iconic picture quality.

For the uninitiated, OLED – Organic Light-Emitting Diode – is a type of display technology that makes it possible to reach dark black levels from ultra-thin screens while, at the same time, making TVs more efficient and eco-friendly. With an OLED panel, the organic pixels are self-emissive, which means they generate their own light – and so can become pitch-black when turned off.

LG 88 inch 8K OLED TVThe first OLED TVs from LG and Samsung hit the shelves in 2013, giving us a tempting glimpse of the picture quality and slimline design the technology promised. In 2015, Samsung decided to ditch OLED and focus on producing 4K LED screens which left LG unrivaled in the production of OLED screens. Now it is backing a different technology, called QLED. Although currently, we have a number of big names in OLED TV production like Panasonic, Sony, Phillips, Toshiba, Bang & Olufsen and Loewe, besides the master-producer, they all source their OLED screens from LG itself.

LG’s first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology, 4K OLED played a major role in reshaping TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same – Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company

According to LG, the OLED shipments in the market are expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022. However, as per claims, LG will continue to expand the OLED share in its Premium TV portfolio and drive large-scale consumer adoption of this technology. LG admits that the 8K OLED is still in its infant stage of production, it is likely to reach more than 5 million by 2022.
