Following the unveiling of the first-ever rollable OLED TV, LG continues to raise the bar, this week announcing the world’s first 8K OLED TV. The TV is available for pre-order in South Korea starting this week, as North America and Europe will follow in the third quarter of 2019.
Spanning 88 inches, the 8K OLED TV is LG’s largest OLED TV to date, making use of a panel of more than 33 million self-emitting pixels to deliver the finest picture quality. The TV’s 8K Ultra HD resolution (7,680 x 4,320) is equivalent to 16 times the number of pixels in full HD and four times UHD.
Picture and sound are enhanced by the company’s second-generation α (Alpha) 9 Gen 2 8K intelligent processor, as the chip optimizes content upon registering source quality. This allows viewers to enjoy the most life-like 8K picture when upgrading from 4K (3,840 x 2,160) or 2K (1,920 x 1,080) content. LG’s 8K OLED TV also comes with Dolby Atmos to offer more realistic sound, while you can then experience 8K content at 60 frames per second thanks to HDMI 2.1 support.
Lastly, built-in versions of Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa will be available in some markets for the 8K OLED TV.
