The television segment is growing constantly. Different technologies such as 4K and HDR resolution are finally becoming mainstream, thanks to the advancements made in the recent past. Consumer electronics manufacturer LG Display has long been working towards pushing its OLED technology to 8K, with the main objective of going a step further.
According to a report published by Engadget, the Korean manufacturer is speculated to launch their upcoming 88-inch 8K OLED display soon enough. If this turns out to be true, then it will be the first time that LG will be launching one of the largest and the highest-resolution OLED panel in the market at the moment. When it comes to talking about specifications regarding the product, there is not much to know about it.
To recall, the largest OLED screen size debuted with support for 4K resolution back in the day. Numerous TV manufacturers including LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic have sourced their large OLED panels from LG Display itself. LG Display currently does not have any more competitors in the sole large-size OLED display segment.
Its main rival Samsung Display has shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs. However, it does not necessarily mean that LG is all alone. Other Japanese companies have made huge investments in this segment. However, to ensure that LG remains ahead in the race, they continue to ramp up their OLED production capacity.
LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well. This particular segment has been dominated by Samsung rivals for long. “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.
