LG first to launch 8K OLED TV

LG Electronics is claiming a “world first” with the introduction of an 8K (7680 x 4320) OLED TV at IFA 2018.

The 88-inch model features over 33 million self-emitting pixels to produce the unequalled contrast ratio and true blacks that define OLED TV’s picture quality.

OLED TV shipments are expected to double in 2018 and to reach over nine million units by 2022, and while the 8K TV sector is still in its infancy, it is expected to grow to more than 5 million units by 2022.

LG says it is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology.

“LG’s first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “4K OLED played a major role in reshaping TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.”

LG is exhibiting in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin during IFA 2018.
