While that's not the largest television you can buy, the upgrade to LG's (now paltry-looking) 77-inch 4K display is the first very big OLED display with more than 33 million pixels to play with-perfect for all the 8K content you can access, which is none.
But that was the same when 4K displays were forayed into the market by vendors.
Prior to this, the largest OLED screen was at 77-inches and they were offered in 4K resolution. We now know that LG will kick things off with a showstopper 88-inch OLED television with an 8K display. The latter is the company that makes the OLED televisions you can buy off the shelves, such as the B7, C7 and E7.
LG Electronics' upcoming V30 smartphone will be the firm's first flagship to sport an OLED display.

In a world saturated with 1080p and 4K TVs, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.
The display boasts 33 million pixels, four times that of 3,840x2,160 ultra high definition and 16 times more pixels than 1,920x1,080 full high definition.
Having said that, we have few details about the TV right now but we are expecting more information to be shared during the launch event. Meanwhile, Samsung shifted from OLED to QLED panels previous year, making LG Display the only large-sized OLED display maker in the game. At $20,000, the company's 77-inch 4K product is already beyond what most consumers would be willing to pay for. But again a TV with an 8K resolution is simply on another level.
"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets", Kang added. The new facility in Guangzhou, China, was recently just approved by the Korean government as part of the two countries' attempts to improve relations. However, with the unveiling of the new OLED monster, LG is showing off just how well it now handles its own ultra HD OLED technology for television displays.
