LG shows off world’s first 8K OLED TV at IFA

LG is showing what it claims is the world’s first 8K OLED TV at IFA in Berlin (Aug 31 to September 5).

Visitors to the technology trade show can see the 88in model (7680×4320 resolution) on the Korean brand’s booth in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin. The TV was debuted at the CES exhibition in Las Vegas in January of this year.

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.”

According to LG, OLED TV shipments in the market are expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022. The brand said it would continue to increase the OLED share in its premium TV portfolio and drive large-scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs.

While the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, it is expected to grow to more than five million units by 2022 and LG is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology, said the manufacturer.
