By the opening of the IFA 2018, which will be held from August 31 to September 5 in Berlin, LG Electronics introduced the world’s first OLED TV with a resolution of 8K (7680 x 4320).
Also, LG shared its plans and hopes. As a result of the expected increase in the volume of OLED TVs on the market by half in 2018 and exceeding the figure of nine million units by 2022, LG plans to continue to increase the share of OLED TVs in the premium-class segment and accelerate the transition of consumers to OLED TVs. Given the fact that the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, it is expected that by 2022 the growth will exceed 5 million units, and LG hopes to lead the ultra-premium market with the new 8K OLED TV technology
Earlier internationally 8K-TVs were presented by Sharp, Panasonic, LG and Samsung, as well as its own 8K-TV showed in May the Belarusian “Horizon”.
