  • Samsung rollable OLED tablet gets fingerprint sensor, ready to become a reality

LG Display has showcased a new 88-inch OLED display with an 8K resolution, ahead of the upcoming CES 2018 show in Las Vegas. Much like the CES in the past, companies like LG and Samsung are set to display some next-gen TVs that push the boundaries of display. This new model is an upgrade over LG's existing 77-inch panel that comes with 4K resolution.

But that was the same when 4K displays were forayed into the market by vendors. From what we have heard so far, the display boasts 33 million pixels, four times that of 3,840x2,160 ultra high definition and 16 times more pixels than 1,920x1,080 full high definition. LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display. Large, crisp displays are certainly one of the better ways to watch your favorite movies and TV shows, but even the most avid 4K proponent might agree that anything above that is approaching overkill territory.

"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", In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display, said in a statement.

LCDs are usually non-emissive which means they require backlight units. Higher resolution is achieved by reducing the size of each pixel and in turn aperture ratio, unavoidably reducing brightness. In order to compensate for the reduced brightness manufacturers have to increase the performance of the backlighting which increases power consumption.

An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display was successfully created using transparent electrodes made by graphene, a promising advanced material, by Korean researchers. The V30 maker is hoping that with the unveiling of its new display panel, it will be the one to lead the 8K resolution market this year. It's still often hard to find 4K content to stream, let alone 8K.
