Previewed at the International CES in January, LG calls the 88-inch class 8K LG OLED TV the “world’s first OLED 8K TV set.” It uses more than 33 million self-emitting pixels to create its contrast ratio and true blacks produce its picture quality. LG Electronics expects OLED TV shipments to double in 2018 and to reach five million by 2022.

Fellow Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung has already introduced the Q9S, an 85-inch 8K TV set, which is not OLED and uses the company’s proprietary AI to produce images in 8K.
