01 Jan 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG Display, LG’s display production arm, has confirmed that it will showcase the world’s first 8K OLED TV at CES 2018 one week from now. It is also the largest OLED TV to date.

8K OLED is coming

Industry observers have questioned whether OLED can make the jump to 8K resolution due to technical limits. LG will answer the concerns in the best way possible. By showing off an 8K OLED TV.

8K resolution (7680x4320 pixels) has four times as many pixels as 4K resolution, and 16 times as many as Full HD.

The display is also the largest OLED to date, measuring 88 inches in diagonal.


The screen will be showcased by LG Display, LG’s display production arm, which suggests that it is a prototype panel – at least for now. The company told Korean media that it was developed using a new, innovative production process, adding that OLED is better suited for 8K than LCD technology due to lower cost and power consumption.

- “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,” said In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display. “OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets.”

Achieving 8K resolution on a 88” panel suggests that it has been produced at the company’s upcoming 10.5-gen OLED factory – perhaps on a pilot production line. To date, LG has produced 55, 65, and 77” OLED TVs at a 8-gen factory in Korea.

The company recently said that it aims to introduce the first consumer 8K OLED TV in 2019 and smaller-size OLED TVs in late 2019 or 2020.

The 8K OLED will be showcased at CES 2018 in Las Vegas next week. FlatpanelsHD will be there so stay tuned.
