LG starts sales of 8K OLED TV

Monday 3 June 2019 | 10:49 CET | News
LG Electronics (LG) announced the start of sales of what it calls the world's first 8K OLED TV (model 88Z9) with pre-orders for the 88-inch set starting this week in South Korea. Availability in key markets of North America and Europe will follow in Q3, LG said. The TV employs an advanced panel with over 33 million self-emitting pixels, that's twice the number of 4K devices, to produce high contrast images for the premium market targeted by the TV maker. Its 8K UHD resolution (7,680 x 4,320) is equivalent to 16 times the number of pixels in full HD and four times that of UHD.
