LG Display has announced that developed the world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED display that boasts the highest resolution with 33 million pixels (7680×4320 pixels) – 16 times more than FHD (1920×1080) and four times more than UHD (3840×2160).
OLEDs are self-emissive and therefore are less affected by aperture ratio. They are optimal for 8K panels and the self-emissive OLEDs do not need backlight units so they can also maintain their slimmer design. It also offers perfect black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles.
LG Display said that it uses its in-house innovations in panel design and fine processing to create 8K resolution OLED displays. “The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality,” said the company.
LG Display will showcase the huge 88-inch 8K OLED display at the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018.
Commenting on the new OLED display, In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display, said:
The successful development of the world’s first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED.
OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets.
