LG Display is going to showcase its new display at CES 2018 which is an 88inch panel with 8K resolution. We're now seeing a growth 4K TVs and HDR content that is slowly but surely going mainstream. As of now, further details regarding the 8K TV are unknown and we'll have a better knowledge about its specifications once it goes official at CES 2018. The latter is the company that makes the OLED televisions you can buy off the shelves, such as the B7, C7 and E7.

LCD 8K panels have backlights, so can therefore adapt brightness to suit, but LG claims to have created its own, in-house technologies to ensure 8K OLED pixels offer similar levels, even though they are self-illuminating.

With over 33 million pixels at their disposal, the TV would certainly provide users with plenty of resolution to enjoy.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream. It seems that the big screen is just LG showing off.
