LG will also be showcasing its 2018 speaker lineup at CES 2018, along with its new 32-inch UHD 4K monitor (model number is 32UK950).
Every year LG blows our minds by pushing the boundaries of what is possible with TV technology at the Consumer Electronics Show, and CES 2018 will be no different as the South Korean giant is teasing an incredible 88-inch OLED TV with a native 8K resolution.
While that's not the largest television you can buy, the upgrade to LG's (now paltry-looking) 77-inch 4K display is the first very big OLED display with more than 33 million pixels to play with-perfect for all the 8K content you can access, which is none.
In other words, it might make more sense to take the tens of thousands of dollars you'd blow on an 8K television and instead buy the biggest 4K display you can get your hands on. It's fair to say that 4K televisions are gaining in popularity, and we're seeing more native 4K content from streaming services and more 4K Blu-rays available for your favorite films. Unfortunately, not much else is known about this TV.
But OLED emits light by itself, so it doesn't lower luminance when the aperture ratio is lower, and is therefore best for 8K resolution, the company said. As for the competition, Samsung might not come into the picture in this category as the company has already shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs.

Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil a Micro LED TV at the trade show.
However, the 8K OLED TV will not be hitting stores anytime soon, as the company is expected wait it out for 8K resolution content to enter the mainstream market.
LG is keeping quiet about the panel, and it does not seem the sort of product where you have to consider the price.
"The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", said In-Byung Kang, executive vice president and chief technology officer at LGD. The former is the arm which sells OLED panels to all TV brands with OLED TVs on the market today, including Panasonic and Sony.
