LG Unveils 88-Inch 8K OLED TV, First In The World

  • LG's New 8K Ultra HD OLED HDR TV Is Simply Out Of This World

Fellow South Korean electronics rival Samsung has an 88-inch TV, but it's both just 4K and QLED technology (OLED is better). With double the resolution and nine extra inches of display, you can expect that LG's 88-inch 8K OLED television is going to cost quite a bit more.

Because OLED displays are self-emissive LG claims it has been able to achieve this without sacrificing brightness. The TV also sports a price tag of $20,000 but is of 4K resolution only. LG Display now does not have any more competitors in the sole large-size OLED display segment.

Panamanian vessel probed over suspected oil supplies to N. Korea
On the same day, a Chinese vessel was seen transferring oil to North Korea's Rye Song Gang 1 ship in U.S. The statement did not address whether or not Russian ships had transferred the fuel.

LGD said it uses its in-house innovations in panel design and fine processing to create 8K resolution OLED displays. From what we have heard so far, the display boasts 33 million pixels, four times that of 3,840x2,160 ultra high definition and 16 times more pixels than 1,920x1,080 full high definition.

Earlier, the largest OLED screen size was 77-inches and it only came with 4K support. Brands like LG, Sony and Panasonic already offer 77-inch TVs.

Raiders going after Jon Gruden, offer him stake in team
Among the perks the Raiders are said to be throwing at Gruden is a partial ownership stake in the team, which is unprecedented. A healthy Derek Carr was primed to bring his team back to the promised land after so much wandering in the desert.

As such, if price alone isn't the factor, the lack of quality content shot in native 8K resolution should be another reason not to opt for the TV just yet. However, Samsung does have an 88-inch TV which features a 2,160p (4K) resolution, HDR, and built-in Wi-Fi. 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. "Part of this includes the construction of a new OLED plant outside of Korea for the first time - in China's Guangzhou city, no less, and this was recently approved by the South Korean government", the report by Engadget reads. Meanwhile, the company has also suggested that it will also be announcing three new flagship monitors with interesting features as well.

Licking County under Winter Weather Advisory
While it will be sunny each day, it's going to feel much cooler with those wind chills staying below zero. Temperatures are forecasted to reach only a high near 18 and drop to the single-digits by evening.
