LG shows off 88-inch 8K OLED TV

LG shows off 88-inch 8K OLED TV

"LG Display is all about innovative products that provide new value to customers", Sang-Beom Han, Vice-Chairman and CEO of LG Display, said in a statement. The SUPER UHD TVs with FALD allow denser backlighting zones throughout the display, unlike edge lighting, in which backlights are positioned on the edges of the TV panel. Users, LG said, will let viewers use their voice to pull up info about actors on screen, weather forecasts, stream music and set timers for when the TV is to be turned off, and implement other TV-controlling functions. The new range features the company's proprietary 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme to enable 4K HDR viewing. They're also using OLED panels with the Sony A8F series, which already pack in plenty of technology in an incredibly thin frame that Sony says is "a little more traditional TV design", according to The Verge. While LG this CES is also showcasing the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV, Samsung is showcasing its first curved monitor with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. It's unlikely to be quite as good as OLED at displaying black on the screen, but it's good news for people not prepared to pay the high costs for OLED TVs.

The flagship TV in LG's 2018 lineup is the W8 "wallpaper" OLED TV, which has all the bells and whistles. It's as crisp and vibrant and lovely as the rest of the company's OLED portfolio, only it's that extra bit thinner, allowing it to be rolled down (kinda like a projector screen flipped on its head).

More news: 'Scandal'-'How to Get Away with Murder' crossover confirmed

In 2016, the firm announced the world's first 18-inch rollable display at CES in - and now, they've more than tripled its size.

The LEDs in The Wall's panel can be switched off individually in the same way as an OLED display. Its 65-inch rollable display is at CES, and LG is confident it'll be a real product one day.

LG's latest TV display boasts 7,680 x 4,320 pixel resolution (33 million pixels), but that's all of the details LG has shared in terms of specs. Whether those strides are big enough to see it enter mass production and move to store shelves anytime soon is now a mystery. It can be rolled up like a canvas and disappear into a rectangular case, which looks more like a standalone soundbar.
