While many are yet to own an ultra high definition (UHD) TV, South Korean electronics manufacturer LG has announced an 8K TV set to be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Showcase (CES).

LG has quickly cemented itself as the go-to company for anyone seeking a head-turning OLED TV. The ET report said LG Display will supply Apple with OLED panels for its rumored 6.5-inch model, while Samsung will focus on the 5.8-inch or 6-inch OLED displays.

LG is shoving the displays of its TV to ever-greater resolutions, sizes, and also most probably prices for the forthcoming CES 2018.

8K TVs are expected to gain commercial viability by 2020.

Samsung has already shown of a real world version of this type of rollable tablet featuring a 5.7-inch OLED that is just 0.3mm thick and weighs 5 grams. He'll be in Vegas to see LG's new hotness next week, so perhaps we'll have more details about the display then. Regardless, the 88-inch TV is definitely an upgrade from its predecessor, the 77-inch panel with 4K resolution.

As Samsung is shifting from OLED to QLED (quantum dot technology) LG will be the only remaining leader, when it comes to OLED TV.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES. Up until now, the biggest OLED display in LG's catalogue was a 77-inch with 4K resolution. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels a year ago, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. So 8K is four times the resolution of a 1080p HD display. OLED display panels are renowned for their vivid colours and deep blacks as pixels are individually lit and can be turned completely off for black. LG says OLED is less susceptible to this than LED LCDs, although with LCD screens offering significantly higher brightness than OLED, there will probably be a levelling in potential performance.
