At the upcoming CES this January, the South Korean manufacturer will show off its new 88-inch OLED display that boasts an 8K resolution, which makes it both the biggest and the highest-resolution OLED TV to date. It'll be gorgeous, that's a given, but if it's too costly, people might look elsewhere, like, say, on 4K OLED screens. According to several reports, LG is expected supply over 15 million OLED panels for the 6.5-inch model, though it is now negotiating with Apple for additional supply according to an Electronic Times report. 4K is the standard at the moment, and much of our content isn't even in that resolution yet, but LG is thinking ahead, since 8K will likely become the next standard. If we round up to 90 inches, the only TV viewing distances that show a benefit between 4K and 8K are those that are less than six feet. LG's 77-inch TV costs a whopping $20,000.

A number of other companies are developing similar flexible displays, including LG, Sharp, Polyera, and many more. LG Display has out done itself by bringing out the world's largest and highest resolution display. LG also pointed out that LCDs with 8K resolution will get heavier and thicker because backlight units need to be placed directly behind the panels to achieve the same level of brightness and picture quality as 4K displays. Meanwhile concerns about OLED display durability, panel fade, screen burn and so on are being addressed by new technology introduced largely by LG. At CES 2017, Samsung unveiled three QLED TVs - the Q9, Q8 and Q7. Given that a smaller 77-inch 4K OLED now sells for around £20,000, you can probably draw your own conclusions about retail potential.More news: Euro jumps on European Central Bank minutes; US CPI & retail sales on the horizon
The product has 33 million pixels (7680 × 4320 pixels), 16 times the resolution of a full HD display (1920 × 1080) and quadruple that of a UHD display (3840 × 2160). OLED display panels are renowned for their vivid colours and deep blacks as pixels are individually lit and can be turned completely off for black.More news: Donald Trump under fire over 'racist' outburst in immigration meeting
