With 4K TVs becoming more common as the prices drop, it’s only a matter of time before 8K TVs are no longer niche products. Multiple companies are working to bring 8K TVs to the market and LG is one of them. The Korean giant has said that it will begin commercial production of its 8K TVs in 2019.
LG says that its 8K UHD OLED TVs will be out in the first half of next year. The company is likely targeting a June launch for the products. It will also have to deal with a problem that manufacturers like Samsung have had to with their 8K TVs.
There’s not a lot of content out there that’s native 8K resolution. It will take a few years since that becomes common. However, upscaling can resolve this issue to an extent. Samsung relies on it and LG is going to have upscaling technology in its 8K TVs as well.
What the company hasn’t revealed at this point in time is how much its 8K TVs are going to cost. Given that the technology is extremely expensive at this point in time, it’s safe to say that its 8K OLED TVs will be priced well into the thousands of dollars.
