  • LG to show off 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES

Having said that, there is no harm in seeing and experience the TV from a distance and as it happens, a lucky few will be able to get a glimpse of the LG 8K OLED TV at the LG Display booth in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 (January 9-12), Las Vegas. Higher resolution is achieved by reducing the size of each pixel and in turn aperture ratio, unavoidably reducing brightness.

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.

With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) right around the corner, some of the biggest names in tech are set to showcase some products that will look to define 2018. The company has claimed that its QLED TVs are better than OLED TVs. This leads to an increase in power consumption and material costs. It seems that the big screen is just LG showing off.

Committed to nuke dev in 2018: North Korea
But in a typically aggressive tone, KCNA said Trump should "not expect any change in its policy" heading into 2018. Mike Mullen on Sunday warned the U.S.is closer to a nuclear war with North Korea than ever before.

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 huge OLED display with more than 33 million pixels to play with-perfect for all the 8K content you can access, which is none. The highest resolution on commercial TVs so far is 4K or Ultra HD, which is what TV makers are pushing in their flagship models.

ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES.

Burn-in is a fact of life for OLED displays, including the iPhone X's Super Retina display.

Sensex scales new high; signs off 2017 with 28% gains
The Sensex clocked its best performance in recent years in 2017, rising by 7,430.37, or 27.91 per cent year-on-year. Asian markets were firm, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inching up 0.3 per cent.

In a statement, In-Byung Kang, executive vice president and chief technology officer at LG Display, said: "The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED". In addition, OLEDs can emit light on their own without backlights so can be made very thin.

For the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple has embedded a series of futuristic features and design elements.
