Samsung reveals Q900R 8K QLED TV

Samsung 8K TV

Hass Mahdi, Head of Audio Visual, Samsung Electronics Australia, said: "The entertainment experience in our lounge rooms is changing and Australians expect more from their TVs". But not one to stand still, Samsung decided it's high time consumers start considering 8K TVs and is rolling out a new model at IFA 2018.

LG are promoting that the market for 8K explode, commenting that 5 million units are expected to ship by 2022.

The 88-inch 8K LG OLED TV comes with 7380x4320 resolution, with the company touting 33-million self-emitting pixels that produce a good quality contrast ratio and true blacks. Screens increased in size as 4K resolution first entered the market. So while you may be watching a 4K Blu-ray, it will look 8K on the screen.

The moment was more like a De-Ja-Vu when the first 4K TV was launched, and we are not surprised that this kind of television is one for the future.

LG predicts OLED TV shipments in the market will double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022.

Samsung and LG have unveiled what they claim is the next generation of television technology: large screens with 8K display resolution.

OLED TVs are self-emissive, while QLED TVs require backlight for the liquid-crystal display.

LG Electronics said on August 29 it will unveil its 88-inch 8K OLED TV at the upcoming tech exhibition in Germany, claiming the product will help the company expand its presence in the global premium TV market. Although this is not that far-fetched, even 4K OLED TVs have a pretty high price, and we can't even imagine how much will the 8K one cost when LG officially announces the price.

Rival Korean firm LG has also announced an 8K television during the technology trade show IFA, which is now taking place in Berlin.

The company is launching four models in 2018 - 65in, 75in, 82in and 85in sets - and all share the same new imaging engine and refined quantum dot QLED technology.

The eight course welcome dinner, however, could have been a clever touch, whether intended or not, to whet the appetite for the next salvo in the TV wars.

The Q900R QLED 8K uses artificial intelligence to upscale a whole range of content - from movies to sport from lower resolution to 8K.
