LG has always been at the forefront of innovative technology and this is no exception. It was only a matter of time before something better than 4K came about and LG has stepped up to the plate to release the LG Signature OLED 8K, the world’s first-ever 8K OLED TV.
With a massive display of 88 inches, this makes it LG’s largest OLED TV to date, with 33 million self-emitting pixels. That’s 16 times more than a Full HD TV! The practically bezel-less TV promises vivid colours and tremendously intricate details, all with an integrated 80W speaker system.
Alongside the LG Signature OLED 8K is the latest release in LG’s Nano-Cell range, the LG 8K Nano-Cell TV. The 75-inch display aims to provide an immersive experience with intense colour and details through the use of Nano Color and Nano Black. Nano Color filters out impurities to enhance colour reproduction and Nano Black precisely controls the TV’s backlighting for deeper blacks and greater contrast.
Both TVs boast effective 8K upscaling and improved noise reduction which enable seamless conversion from 4K or Full HD supported by LG’s intelligent processor. LG’s advanced processor allows it to recognise not only the quality of the source but also analyse environmental conditions to optimise the sound quality as well as the screen brightness.
Planning on having a movie night at your place? Both TVs can up-mix two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 surround sound, carry the Cinema HDR feature and has four ports that support HDMI 2.1 specifications, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy the full 8K experience at 60 frames per second.
The LG Signature OLED 8K and the LG 8K Nano-Cell TV models will support Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit as well as built-in versions of Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa in select markets. The two TVs are set to be released in 140 markets starting with Australia, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States and have an estimated retail price of a whopping US$42,000.
