One of Microsoft’s hopes these days is that users will upgrade to the new 4K TVs in the future in order to be able to take advantage of the new exciting Xbox One X console. But the industry is moving ahead with the quickest steps, and it evolved to 8K displays.
LG Display is one of the world’s most significant display maker, and it just revealed that it created the first 88-inch OLED display in the world. It’s also important to note that LG Display is the only large-size OLED display creator in the whole world and it is set to become the leader of the extra-large and ultra-high resolution panel market.
The display’s features are impressive
This fantastic new display rocks the highest resolution, and it has 33 million pixels (7680×4320), and this is 16 times more than FHD (1920×1080) and four times more than UHD (3840×2160).
The size of each pixel and the in turn aperture ratio have been reduced to achieve such an impressive resolution without having to compromise the brightness. The fact that there’s no need for backlight units leads to a very slim profile of the display.
According to LG, future LCDs boasting 8K resolution will be heavier and thicker because backlight units will have to be placed straight behind the panels in order to achieve the same level of brightness and the same high picture quality as 4K displays.
The world’s first 88-inch OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era
In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display stated that the successful development of this screen is critical in the 8K scenery.
He also said that OLED is definitely the next-gen technology leader and this is the primary reason for which LG Display is currently accelerating its OLED research and development. The company’s goal is to offer various products suited for all customers and markets.
