LG just unveiled the world's largest and highest-resolution OLED display

LG 8K OLED Display

This left LG has the biggest name in the high-resolution, large screen OLED display market.

Regardless, LG plans to unveil just that at CES 2018. Of course, bearing in mind how incredible LG's latest OLED TVs are, there's a very good chance this new panel is the most impressive display panel the world has ever seen, period. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR.

What's more, LG's 8K TV is likely to be considerably more expensive than anything on the market. According to Engadget, which first reported on this, LG will be showcasing the 8K resolution OLED display at CES. An 88-inch OLED panel is the largest OLED display to date. Naturally, there's little point LG offering this set for sale, given the lack of 8K content available right now, but it could be a sign of things to come from the firm, farther down the line.

Upcoming CES would witness the showcasing of massive 88-inch OLED TV from the South Korean manufacturers. It's still often hard to find 4K content to stream, let alone 8K.

South Korea seizes vessel over 'oil transfer to North'
The department noted that the two ships appeared to be illegally trading in oil from ship to ship to bypass sanctions. Ship-to-ship trade with North Korea at sea is prohibited under United Nations sanctions adopted in September.

We saw 4K and HDR getting popular in 2017 and now as we enter 2018 LG is all set to launch world's first 8K OLED display at CES 2018.

The product has 33 million pixels (7680 × 4320 pixels), 16 times the resolution of a full HD display (1920 × 1080) and quadruple that of a UHD display (3840 × 2160). "LCDs with 8K resolution, however, inevitably get heavier and thicker because backlight units need to be placed directly behind the panels to achieve the same level of brightness and picture quality as 4K products", LG Display noted in a press release.

Prior to this, the largest OLED screen was at 77-inches and they were offered in 4K resolution.
