The report further noted that LG Display will produce 6.5-inch OLED panels, while Samsung Display will produce the 5.8-inch or 6-inch OLED panels. But it's still hardly the usual for TVs, so one really doesn't need to think of switching to the 8K resolution straight away. In fact, the second biggest TV commercially available TV with OLED technology came with 77-inch and 4K resolution. It is heard that LG Display is now negotiating with Apple in order to increase amount of its supplies.

LG has announced that it will have a big 8K display on hand at CES 2018 and the display will be a world's first.

The QLED TV stands for Quantum Dot television sets, which are supposed to be brighter, more vibrant than regular OLED, though it comes with the sacrifice of contrast ratios, which is better on OLED displays. Features like HDR and the quality of OLED panels themselves are more likely to drive the next round of upgrades, and there's no timeline for any kind of 8K introduction in the US.


LG claims the new television is the world's first 88-inch, 8K, OLED screen and was built as a way to show off what OLED tech is capable of. LG's 8K TV will be a show of strength at CES 2018 as the company competes against the likes of Samsung and Panasonic, among others. Don't be shocked if similarly extravagant TVs are unveiled from other manufacturers at CES. Back in 2016, the Korean company showcased a fully functional rollable OLED panel. That's four times the pixels of the most common "4K" display, and sixteen times the pixels of your typical 1920x1080 (or "1080p") monitor.

LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well.

LG Display's E6 plant has production capacity of 30,000 units of Gen 6 flexible OLED panel per month. Apple has also managed to tune the display the offer up a heightened color balance, and no ghosting or burn in issues.
