In this particular case, LG has opted for an OLED display, a technology at which it excels. The first on the list of LG's products seems to be a TV display that sports 8K resolution and 88-inch OLED display. Even the 77-inch 4K OLED from past year still costs $20,000 United States dollars. But that just means what you see here is the television of the future, in the same way CES played host to HD screens and 4K displays before they went on sale. 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.
LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available. 4K is the standard at the moment, and much of our content isn't even in that resolution yet, but LG is thinking ahead, since 8K will likely become the next standard.
LG is showing off a new 88-inch 8K OLED TV wonder though the perceived high cost as well as the lack of native 8K content makes it more of a tech showpiece than anything else. Brands like LG, Sony and Panasonic already offer 77-inch TVs. They also wrestle over Google's Pixel 2 - Samsung supplies the Pixel 2's AMOLED display, LG the Pixel 2 XL's P-OLED display.
LG Preps an 88-Inch, 8K OLED TV for CES 2018
LG is still pushing for the OLED technology to hit mainstream. At CES 2017, Samsung unveiled three QLED TVs - the Q9, Q8 and Q7. It's a chance to mark the company as the leader in crisp, amazing, jaw-dropping OLED TVs. That's four times the pixels of the most common "4K" display, and sixteen times the pixels of your typical 1920x1080 (or "1080p") monitor.
"Back to that 88" OLED panel - what I wouldn't give to hook up a Steam Link/Controller to that beast.
OLED displays also remain comparatively light when the resolution is kicked up, whereas LCD screens can be anticipated to increase in weight.
