LG unveils the world's first 8K OLED TV at IFA 2018

Samsung has revealed an all-new 8K television today at the IFA technology show in Berlin which they say is part of the company's long-term vision to make 8K the most accurate and life-like screen resolution on the market. This next-generation TV won't come cheap and even if one has the money to spend on something such as this, the cost begs the question, is it worth it at this point?

The Korean company estimates that shipments of 8K TVs applied with different displays will be around 60,000 units globally this year and reach 5.3 million units by 2022.

With 4,000 nit peak brightness, these TVs produce four times more pixels than a 4K UHD and sixteen times more than full HD tvs. The company did not comment on HDMI 2.1 either but we are chasing details.

Adding up to a total of over 33 million pixels, the LG's 88-inch 8K OLED TV has a resolution of 7680x4320, which is an equivalent of four 4K TVs. The Samsung model will be made available in several screen sizes, and will be available in stores by the end of September. In addition, the Q900R features Direct Full Array Elite for enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control, and also 100% Color Volume, enabling users to witness billions of shades of color for the purest color accuracy to-date. The TV is up for display at IFA in Berlin, and as mentioned, pricing and availability is not yet announced.

Introducing the product, LG's president of home entertainment, Brian Kwon, said: "LG's first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology. 4K OLED has played a role in reshaping the TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same". Q HDR 8K powered by HDR (High Dynamic Range) 10+ technology which optimizes the TV's brightness levels and produces pristine colors and images is also incorporated to deliver pictures as intended by creators.
