LG has already partaken in this process, and this week, its LG Display subsidiary furthered the pre-show hype by announcing a new 88-inch OLED TV panel with a super-sharp 8K resolution, which it will showcase at the event.
And even if companies aren't ready to squeeze that many pixels on a screen, HDMI 2.1 should give us lots of other drool-worthy extras, like variable frame rate support.
A consumer version of the LG 88-inch 8K panel has not been detailed, but the display will be demoed at CES next week.
LG, one of the biggest names in the TV landscape, is set to announce a very large OLED TV with the highest resolution of its kind thus far.
Samsung has been awarded a patent for a "rollable" OLED display that could usher in a new level of portability for tablet devices. LG's 77-inch TV costs a whopping $20,000. It is expected to take the lead in the TV display market against tech giants, like Samsung.
The previous largest OLED TV was a 77-inch model from LG, which used a 4K panel.
If one goes by the resolution, this will be the highest resolution OLED display and the largest one ever. OLED emits light by itself, so it doesn't lower luminance when the aperture ratio is lower, and is, therefore, best for 8K resolution, the company said. Not because LG pays us to say so or because we just have a bias towards their products (we're also nearly invariably critical of the company's rather crappy budget 4K UHD TVs), but because OLED really is some of the best 4K TV display technology we've ever seen for faithfully rendering consumer entertainment in 4K HDR. Don't be shocked if similarly extravagant TVs are unveiled from other manufacturers at CES. With a resolution of 7680×4320, it packs 4x more pixels than a 4K display, and 16x more pixels than a 1080p panel. As per the report, in the current year, Apple plans to launch two screen sizes for the OLED display iPhones. "OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with ideal black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles", LG added.
