At CES 2019, LG has announced the world’s first 8K OLED TV, the LG OLED88Z9. And now, this OLED TV is going up for the pre-orders. This is one among the first 8K TV to be announced and the first TV to be available commercially for pre-orders in South Korea, with it is set to make it to North America and Europe in the third quarter of 2019.
LG OLED 88Z9 comes with 88-inch OLED display with a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels, or over 33 million pixels on the screen. The TV also supports the HDR and Dolby Vision formats. 8K is four times as sharp as 4K and 16 times the number of pixels as full-HD. However, there is currently very little worthwhile 8K content available to take advantage of the resolution.
However, this is not an issue to be concerned while going up for an 8K. At the initial stage, 4K TVs also faced the same problem of less content available in 4K resolution but with the launch of 4K TVs, 4K content also started being available on a large scale. Various online streaming platforms offer a growing list of TV shows and movies in 4K, while the 4K Blu Ray format has also gained popularity.
Moreover, the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo is expected to be broadcast in 8K resolution, for the time being, it isn’t much you can do with an 8K TV, at least when it comes to video content. But still, you can enjoy some of the 8K contents available on the web on a huge display with Samsung OLED 88Z9 TV.
The LG 88Z9 is also a smart TV, and in some markets, will feature support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. As of now, the company didn’t reveal the pricing of this 8K TV. Since it is one among the first 8K to be available in the market, it is sure going to be expensive. For now, if you are from South Korea, you can pre-order this TV.
