Tag: LG 8K OLED Display

LG only talked up the display itself in a press release. As users and owners of the iPhone X have appreciated Apple's first OLED phones, the company is said to swiftly work to have ample production ready for the next generation iPhone. Besides these two, Apple is also expected to launch a 6.1-inch model with a LCD panel. If we round up to 90 inches, the only TV viewing distances that show a benefit between 4K and 8K are those that are less than six feet. So that means 7680 x 4320 versus 3840 x 2160. That amounts to a massive quantity of over 33 million pixels in total, each capable of lighting up or turning off individually due to the highly advanced OLED dimming technology of organic light emitting diodes. To note that creating content on 4K HDR requires specialised hardware and creating 8K content has not yet begun. It is one of those things that need to be seen to be believed.

According to The Korean Herald, LG is expected to ship between 15 and 16 million OLED panels to Apple throughout 2018. You can't just go to the store and buy The Lord of the Rings in 8K, nor are you going to be able to stream an 8K House of Cards on Netflix anytime soon.

LG is still pushing for the OLED technology to hit mainstream. Even so, LG unveiling the TV during CES is key. For those not yet in the know, organic light-emitting diodes are a completely different sort of display from your typical "LED monitor". Amount of its supplies is not much compared to its competitor Samsung Display.

However, so far there is virtually no content for the average user to watch. Don't expect it to be available in your local Best Buy shortly after the event however.

An OLED panel supply deal between Apple and LG Display is now at its final stage, with the latter expected to start shipping the component for the next iPhone in the second half of this year if an agreement is made, The Investor reported, citing industry sources.
