South Korean Electronics manufacturer LG announced late New Year’s eve that it will be showcasing a huge 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES 2018. The new TV will replace LG’s previously huge-est 77-inch OLED as the largest OLED display on the planet. The TV’s resolution will be 7680 x 4320, which is 16 times more pixels than 1080p and four times that of today’s 4K TVs.

Since it is an OLED TV, each of those 33,177,600 pixels will be capable of perfect black levels, enabling the display to achieve impressive HDR results. LG also points to the fact that, because OLED pixels are self-emissive (meaning they product their own light), this large 88-inch 8K TV will be more efficient then comparably sized LCD TVs which rely on LED backlights
With its main rival Samsung Display having long shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs, LG Display is now the sole large-size OLED display maker in the world. That said, with potential competition from other countries like Japan, LG Display has made huge investments to ensure that it continues to have the upper hand by ramping up OLED production capacity, as well as to make a bigger push into mobile OLED panels — a market dominated by its Samsung counterpart.
