South Korean multinational electronics company, LG, has announced that it had developed the world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED display which comes with 33 million pixels (7680×4320 pixels) which is 16 and 4 times larger than the pre-existing FHD (1920×1080) and UHD (3840×2160) displays respectively. OLEDs are self-emissive, optimal for 8K panels, and does not need backlights. These abilities make it retain its slim nature and it is not really affected by aperture ratio.
