LG brought to IFA 2018 the world’s first 8K OLED TV

Pricing and availability of the TV haven't been revealed yet, but Samsung might launch its new flagship display soon. Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company, said in a statement, "LG's first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology". What makes it able to support that much video resolution, here's the thing, the Q900R processing engine takes the 8K AI Upscaling system to the highest compatibility.

Real 8K resolution is capable of up to 4,000 nit peak brightness. While it is 8K too, one of its key highlights of TV is that it features 8K AI Upscaling, allowing users to experience 8K resolution with standard content.

Available in the U.S. starting in October, the television has an 85-inch screen size. Unlike other 8K displays developed for professional use such as cinemas and outdoor signage, LG's TV is the first commercial model.

During the IFA 2018, Samsung showcased a television that will interpret all content with extreme efficiency to 8K.

Rival Korean firm LG has also announced an 8K television during the technology trade show IFA, which is now taking place in Berlin.

Samsung Electronics has debuted its 8K OLED TV, the Q900R, with 8K AI upscaling at its press conference at IFA in Berlin this week. Like Samsung's previously announced 146-inch Wall TV, LG's massive display uses an array of microscopic LEDs that form individual pixels. The 85-inch Q900FN, announced ahead of the IFA trade show in Berlin, has four times the pixels than your typical puny 4K TV, and it'll arrive to USA stores this October.

And, subjectively at least, from a typical viewing distance, the 4K pictures Samsung chose to demonstrate did look sharper on the Q900R, although on closer inspection the picture was softer than true 8K footage.

At that point, you're better off getting a high-end OLED TV that looks great today, rather than waiting for algorithmic magic to deliver some pseudo-8K goodness. In terms of raw numbers, like with the jump from 1080p (or 2K) to 4K, the leap to 8K means roughly four-times the pixel-count.
