LG’s New 88-Inch, 8K TV Wins 2020 CES Innovation Award
With a nearly invisible bezel, the 88-inch set is the world’s largest OLED TV.
LG’s Signature 8K 88ZX TV won a CES 2020 Innovation Award thanks to its unrivaled capability and impressive size.
For starters, the staggering 88-inch screen is the largest Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) TV in the world. According to Robb Report, OLED technology greatly enhances clarity and resolution and produces a brighter display with deep blacks, higher contrast in general, and faster refresh rates than common Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) TVs.
The new model also boasts Advanced 8K Ultra High Definition— the highest resolution available—with 33 million pixels and 130 million sub-pixels for four times the resolution of 4K. Images are rendered in ultra-crisp detail and color thanks to LG’s Gen 3 AI Processor.
LG’s Deep Learning AI is also incorporated into the 88ZK to accommodate Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple AirPlay 2 digital assistants. Voice recognition allows users to command and control a variety of home smart devices. (There are also a number of ways to keep any smart TV from spying on you here.)
Robb Report has further details on the TV’s other features:
With a powerful output of 80 Watts, the 88ZX offers exceptional sound quality, augmented by an intelligent algorithm that can up-mix two-channel audio to deliver convincing virtual 5.1 surround sound, and features Dolby Atmos for an even more immersive sonic experience for movies and music. The TV intelligently sets ideal levels based on its positioning, and optimizes sound based on content type, making voices in movie soundtracks and news broadcasts more audible.
One notable attribute of this 88-inch TV is its ultra-thin profile. The bezel surround of the screen is quite minimal, allowing the TV to almost disappear as a three-dimensional component, almost floating as if it were a sheet of paper. The sleek design features premium metal details, and is particularly suited to minimalist architectural interiors.
Prices and a release date for the LG Signature 8K 88ZX aren’t available yet, but its listing on the tech company’s website reads “coming soon.”
