LG Display's 2018 New Year Resolution is 8K on 88-inch OLED

LG_8K_OLED

8K is 16 times more than the high-definition resolution of 1920×1080, and four times more than the ultra high-definition (UHD) resolution of 3840×2160.

LG Display announced, on January 1, the world's first 88-inch organic light emitting diode (OLED) display panel with 8K picture quality four times brighter than ultra-high definition (UHD) display panels now available. For instance, 88-inch 4K LED TV will set you back by $20,000 and you can imagine how much expensive the new LG 8K TV will be.

Packers finish with first losing season since 2008 after Lions loss
The Lions concluded their season with a record of 9-7 while the Packers wrapped up their campaign with a 7-9 mark. Detroit rookie tight end Michael Roberts was inactive because of conduct detrimental to the team, Caldwell said.

But 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.

However, the 8K OLED TV will not be hitting stores anytime soon, as the company is expected wait it out for 8K resolution content to enter the mainstream market. For the actual consumer market, today's largest OLED TV's come from LG and Sony, with maximum display sizes of "only" 77 inches and 4K ultra HD resolution with support for multiple HDR formats like HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

Harry Kane could miss Tottenham's trip to Swansea because of illness
The Belgium global was withdrawn in the 55th minute of the Southampton game and Pochettino said: "Now we're assessing him. I think we are still waiting and we will see what happens in the next few weeks.

If one goes by the resolution, this will be the highest resolution OLED display and the largest one ever. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels previous year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level. 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. The new facility in Guangzhou, China, was recently just approved by the Korean government as part of the two countries' attempts to improve relations.

The biggest drawback for LG's television-aside from needing to carve out a huge section of your living room for it-is likely to be the set's price. Meanwhile, the company has also suggested that it will also be announcing three new flagship monitors with interesting features as well.

The First Supermoon of 2018 Arrives on New Year's Day
Blue moons aren't actually blue - the confusion is because the term originates in "blewe", the old English word for "betrayer". The Quadrantid meteor shower peaks January 3rd but viewing will suffer due to the very bright, almost full Moon.
