LG readies 55-inch 8K TV, and new quantum dot 4K display technology
December 16, 2014
This year it was 4K - next year, it's looking like it'll be 8K and quantum dots. At CES 2015 - now less than a month away! - LG says it will show off a 55-inch 8K TV, and a 4K TV that uses quantum dots to improve image quality and color saturation. In both cases, we are talking about IPS LCD panels, rather than OLED technology, which should mean that both the 4K and 8K displays are reasonably priced. The 8K display is also notable because it's small - with a diagonal of 55 inches, this thing not only has an incredibly high resolution for a TV (160 PPI), but it will actually fit in most households, unlike the 85- and 98-inch 8K TVs that we've seen previously.
