88-inches with over 33 million pixels

LG has officially unveiled the world's first 8K OLED TV at the IFA 2018 show in Berlin, packing a resolution of 7680x4320 on an 88-inch screen panel.

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.

While 4K content is just barely catching up, LG claims that it expects to sell five million 8K TVs by 2022. Although this is not that far-fetched, even 4K OLED TVs have a pretty high price, and we can't even imagine how much the 8K one will cost when LG officially announces the price.

LG also noted that while the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, the company is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology.

“LG’s first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology”, said Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “4K OLED played a major role in reshaping TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.”

The new LG 88-inch 8K OLED TV is currently displayed at the LG booth at IFA 2018 show in Berlin, but there is no information on the price or the availability date.
