It has more than 33 million pixels.
I’m sorry to say the 65-inch 4K TV you just purchased over the holidays is already outdated. At least, compared to the 88-inch 8K display LG just unveiled. Yes, the Korean giant’s newest TV has twice the maximum resolution of the most expensive sets on the market.
For you spec nerds, its total resolution is 7,680 x 4,320 or 33 million pixels. That’s all we know in terms of specs but given its use of LG’s tried-and-true OLED technology, we expect perfect blacks, strong contrasts, and vivid colors. It also has an extremely thin bezel, similar to the razor-thin wallpaper TV LG showed off last year. This isn’t the first 8K TV nor is it the largest TV ever released, but it’s the first time we’ve seen 8K combined with OLED, what many believe to be the standard in display technology.
Don’t expect to be pulling this gorgeous display off Best Buy shelves anytime soon. Not only is it impossible to find content to stream at that resolution but the price of an OLED TV with such a high pixel density could cost tens of thousands of dollars. This is, for all intents and purposes, LG showing off to its competitors ahead of one of the most important trade shows in the world.
The company will display the TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week where we’ll get our first hands-on look and hopefully learn more about it.
