South Korean technology major LG known for its prowess in LED display development has come up with a new giant super high-resolution TV with state-of-the-art technology that is for sure going to take the television viewing experience to a whole new level. The firm said that it used OLED for its new display because it does not involve additional cost to make. That amounts to a massive quantity of over 33 million pixels in total, each capable of lighting up or turning off individually due to the highly advanced OLED dimming technology of organic light emitting diodes.

LG maintained that it's actually easier to come up with 8K resolution for an OLED display than a liquid crystal display (LCD) panel. You can still expect to see a few 8K screens on display at CES 2018 next week, however, and this new 88-inch panel from LG Display will be the cream of the crop. Of course, one of the challenges for 8K resolution displays will be finding content which is shot at the resolution, considering 4K and HDR formats are just starting to take off. But don't worry 8K is still very far and it will be interesting to see how other companies like Samsung will compete with this new 8K panel has Samsung is now concentrating more on its QLED technology.

More details, including pricing, should be revealed when the display is shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 9 to 12, 2018. Brands like LG, Sony and Panasonic already offer 77-inch TVs. Interestingly, the new system has an 8K display making it the first of its kind and with this, the company is promising better things for the consumers.
