LG unveils 8K OLED TV - mass production starting soon

29 Aug 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG has unveiled its first 8K OLED TV for the consumer market, with mass production scheduled to start ”soon”. The 88-inch TV will be on display at IFA 2018 later this week.

LG is ready to take the next step at IFA 2018 in Berlin. Samsung had already confirmed that it would be announcing its first 8K TV but LG could steal the show with its 8K TV based on OLED 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’s home entertainment business. “4K OLED played a major role in reshaping the TV industry, and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.”

LG launched its first OLED TV in 2013. It featured HD resolution but LG was quick to add 4K resolution, then HDR (High Dynamic Range), most recently HFR (High Frame Rate), and now 8K resolution. An 8K TV has 7680x4320 pixels, which is four times as many as a 4K TV. With a total of 33 million self-emitting pixels that can each reproduce true black, the TV will surely impress spectators at the IFA show.

LG estimates that the 8K TV market will grow from around 60000 units this year to over 5 million annually units by 2022. It also estimates that the OLED TV market will grow from 2.5 million units this year to over 9 million units anually by 2022.

At IFA 2018, Samsung will unveil its 8K LCD TV under the ”QLED” moniker. Samsung is still the world’s largest TV maker but it has lost most of its relevance in the high-end segment due mostly to the succes of OLED that Samsung has been unable to mass produce in TV sizes.

- “LG will continue to increase the OLED share of its premium TV portfolio, and drive large-scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs,” LG said.

FlatpanelsHD will be on spot at IFA 2018 in Berlin so stay tuned for more information and hands-on impressions.
