Samsung may have been behind Apple's debut OLED display, but for the 2018 lineup, Apple may go with a different chaebol. This coincides with reports past year that Apple would be investing up to $2.6 billion in LG Display to allow the company to build more OLED production lines and dedicate some of them exclusively to Apple's orders. This may be true, but the cost improvements clearly aren't all that large - LG's 77-inch 4K OLED TV, which you can now purchase, is $20,000. Samsung, a prominent name in display market, has patented a new foldable display.
LG Display, one of the world's largest display maker, announced yesterday that it has developed the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED display. "Samsung's rival 88" QLED display costs about $20,000. In addition, OLED TVs have consistently won top rankings in quality and performance evaluations conducted in North America, Europe and elsewhere.
To recall, the largest OLED screen size debuted with support for 4K resolution back in the day. The 32-inch 4K monitor will be the first from LG to offer the company's advanced Nano IPS technology, which relies on "nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths" and thus improve the visual experience on the display. There are no details yet on the other specs of LG's 88-inch panel with 8K resolution TV.
ChannelNews is also tipping that Samsung, Philips and several Chinese brands along with Japanese brand Sharp will reveal 8K TV's at CES.More news: Intel Meltdown patch causes issues with Broadwell and Haswell

In other words, this experimental new OLED UHD TV is an absolute monster of advanced technology.
LG Display's E6 plant has production capacity of 30,000 units of Gen 6 flexible OLED panel per month. The screen's resolution is an enormous 7680 x 4320, which means there are 33 million pixels - four times that of Ultra HD (4K), which is itself four times the resolution of regular old HD.
LG has on several occasions, stated that they have started pushing OLED panels on mobile phones as well.
OLED TVs produce a pure black colour in displays, which results in brighter and more vivid colours.
