But that was the same when 4K displays were forayed into the market by vendors. Well, just after teasing its latest 34-inch 5K monitor, LG has now unveiled a massive 88-inch OLED TV ahead of the official launch at CES 2018.

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

The previous record-holder for the biggest OLED display TV only touched 77 inches and it only featured 4K resolution. Besides, it's also the TV with the largest count of pixels, as LG's upcoming beast will be packing an 8K resolution.

The camera comes with a new UI design along with beauty effect for Portrait Mode and Places tab for viewing photos on a map. On seconds thought, South Korea might be the one that will firstly receive the final form of Android Oreo for LG G6 .

The release continued, "The 33 million self-emissive OLED pixels in each 8K OLED display create the more delicate images and unmatched picture quality that are already highly regarded in the UHD TV industry". This means the new panel has 16 times more pixels than your home TV which is probably a Full HD one. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels a year ago, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game.

"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. Higher resolution is achieved by reducing the size of each pixel and in turn aperture ratio*, unavoidably reducing brightness. In order to compensate for the reduced brightness manufacturers have to increase the performance of the backlighting which increases power consumption. In addition, OLEDs can emit light on their own without backlights so can be made very thin. OLED panels also offer deeper blacks, wider viewing angles and brighter colours as compared to LCD panels which make them the ideal platform to view 8K resolution content. It sets a new standard in the 8K LED category and many wonder, how much more the companies be able to push the envelope in the home entertainment gadgets.
