CES 2018: LG Kicks Off Expensive TV race with an 88-inch 8K OLED Display

For the upcoming CES 2018, LG is likely to debut a television that brags both greater sizes and resolution. Recent news hinted that the company would be showcasing a new and modern 88-inch TV with OLED display and 8K resolution.


The Korean manufacturer’s plan seems so ambitious that it would introduce a largest OLED screen size come to CES this year. If LG would certainly pursue such plan, the 88-inch OLED display with 8K resolution is by-far the largest TV screen size that uses 8K technology.

What we know so far with LG’s ambitious OLED TV?


LG previously manufactured a 77-inch OLED display with only 4K technology. But this kind of TV was offered only by some companies such as LG Electronics, Sony, and Panasonic, respectively. Both Sony and Panasonic sourced their large OLED panels from the Korean manufacturer.


Also, a report indicates that LG has yet to announce the price of its ambitious OLED TV. What we know so far is that LG is selling its 77-inch OLED TV with 4K resolution. The TV has a  price tag of $20, 000. While the company’s rival Samsung is already selling an 88-inch TV using QLED technology for the same price of $20, 000.


Meanwhile, some would claim that Samsung’s QLED technology on their television is comparable only to 4K resolution. The issue until now is being debated. What is certain though is that 4K OLED screen display is getting cheaper. Many consumers can actually afford 4K OLED TV, and this makes such technology getting more affordable.


Certainly, the CES 2018 would be LG’s perfect venue to showcase its innovative and modern 88-inch OLED TV. Right now, 8K technology is a thing, and we see LG to push its limit to manufacture a TV with a bigger screen, and crisp resolution.

Samsung slaps another lawsuit on Apple

The battle between technology giant Apple and Samsung has reached a new level as the latter files a new lawsuit against the other in South Korea.

Samsung Electronics Co. said that it has filed another lawsuit that claims the iPhone 4S and iPad2 infringed on three of its patents.

The two leading companies are at war as they vie for solo leadership of the smartphone market. They have previously filed cases in Australia, Germany and the Netherlands to name just a few.

The three patents that Samsung is accusing of Apple infringing involve patents for the user interface, short text messages and methods of displaying data.

The two tech moguls have been fighting it out in courts the world over with over 30 cases in 10 different countries since Apple fired its first salvo of lawsuits last April. They claimed that Samsung “slavishly” copied their iPhone and iPad devices.

Samsung then countered with their own lawsuit accusing Apple of infringing their patents and failing to pay royalties.

Apple as a company have been bruising it out in courts against smartphone makers using Google’s Android platform. The latter is the fastest growing OS in the world and is a vaunted rival of the iPhone. The Android platform is being used by Samsung, Motorola and HTC to name just a few.
