Every year at the CES 2018, TV manufacturer’s come up with ridiculous TVs that almost no one will buy, but will make tech reporters at CES to burst about “the most amazing picture I’ve ever seen on a TV!” while everyone else will be wondering about “What exactly these manufacturers are thinking?”
LG’s 88-inch 8K OLED TV belongs to one of those. No doubt it will be a state-of-art, amazing, best display ever. But again, almost no one will buy it! The native 8K resolution is a whooping 7680 x 4320. Which means 33,177,600 pixels, which is four times the number of pixels on a 4K screen (3840 x 2160).
This 8K OLED will be an upgrade to LG’s existing 77-inch panel with 4K resolution, and although there’s no price for this new display, the 77-inch OLED television costs $20,000 right now. Samsung has a 88-inch QLED TV, which also costs around $20,000 — but that’s only 4K resolution.
Considering the current scenario where the only 8K content that a person can view is the content that TV manufacturers produce to showcase their TVs. Given that it will deliver the best picture quality, unpredicted sharpness and details. It will look awesome, might be the most amazing picture most CES reporters will have ever seen. But in 2018, it will also be a pointless exercise in useless technology.
LG will be showcasing this new 8K OLED TV with some new ultra-wide Gaming/Computer monitors at (Consumer Electronics Show) CES 2018, which kicks-off this Jan 9 in Las Vegas.
