Samsung and LG Unveil 8K TVs (cnet.com)

The latest TV “must have” that you actually don’t really need — at least right now — has arrived at the IFA electronics show in Berlin. That’s 8K, the super-crisp display technology that has four times the resolution of 4K screens. CNET: Samsung on Thursday showed off the Q900, which packs in more than 33 million pixels. The 85-inch TV will be the first 8K TV to hit the US market when it goes on sale in October, although Samsung didn’t specify the price. Its arch rival LG a day earlier announced what it called “the world’s first” 8K OLED TV. It showed the 88-inch device to some reporters in January at CES but didn’t specify when there would be an actual product for consumers. Meanwhile Sharp began shipping the LV-70X500E 70-inch 8K monitor earlier this year to Europe after launching it in late 2017 in China, Japan and Taiwan. 8K TVs dramatically boost the number of pixels in the displays, which the companies say will make pictures sharper on bigger screens. “We ⦠are confident that [consumers] will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound from our new 8K-capable models,” Jongsuk Chu, the senior vice president of Samsung’s Visual Display Business, said in a press release.
