LG's main rival Samsung Display having long shifted its focus from OLED TVs to QLED TVs, LG Display is now the sole large-size OLED display maker in the world. We're now seeing a growth 4K TVs and HDR content that is slowly but surely going mainstream. The image of the TV released by LG is also equally stunning, to say the least, though the only problem here - if it can be so said - is that there isn't any 8K content to view on the TV just yet. 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. LG's 8K television will be around 7680×4320 pixels in resolution and for the attendees at CES, it will be definitely one of the major attractions at the show. While this combination is now offered to consumers by the likes of LG Electronics, Sony and Panasonic, they all source their large OLED panels from LG Display. Interestingly, the new system has an 8K display making it the first of its kind and with this, the company is promising better things for the consumers.

With over 33 million pixels at their disposal, the TV would certainly provide users with plenty of resolution to enjoy. OLED panels can easily overcome this issue as OLEDs are self-emissive and require much less power than backlit LCD panels.

While Samsung is following a different path, LG still sees competition from countries like Japan, and the company's display arm has made investments in billions of dollars to increase production and take OLED displays mainstream.
