    Not bad being a little more future proof (8k), but I am more looking forward to hdmi 2.1 (atmos, gaming, and eventually better HDR). Too bad the panels are still 10 bit.

    My 65 inch LG OLED tv got burn in after 6 months. LG offered me half the purchase price of the tv towards another LG product. According to LG the life span of a tv is 1 year. My 12 year old Sony XBR tv is now in my bedroom and still looking great. I will never purchase another LG product again!

    Looks like we will be skipping over 4k to 8k for people who want a 70" tv or bigger.
    4k for people who want 60" to 70" tvs.
    Smaller tvs don't do any 4k or 8k justice.

    Samsung's has a 85" 8k tv for 15k.
    No buyers yet.
    I could see 85" for 8,500 and 90" 4 9,000, and a 100" for 10, 000.00.
    That would be a great way to price the 8k tvs.🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂❤❤❤❤

    Keep in mind the next generation of consoles are like 2 years away. As it stands the Xbox One X can run native 4k at a stable 60fps. What's to come from the new Xbox, 8k maybe? Even if there isn't 8k content out there the tv still upscales FHD AND UHD to 8k. It's better than 4k (especially for larger TV's) whether you want to admit it or not. I will be buying a 8k tv, because it's my money. I actually never got a 4k tv so it's the perfect time to get a new the especially when they have micro led TV's!

    By the time 8K content becomes readily available in another 4 to 5 years and mainstream these OLED TVs are going DIE lol, why the hell would you invest in a 8K TV now when there's hardly any content future proof?? well TVs these days are designed to last 5 to 10 years, only for the elite were money is a luxury lol

    Games, movies, Television, none of is ready for 8k, neither are the pocketbooks of the majority of the world. It's just future tech guys, a glimpse into the far far future.

    It's time for lg to give Samsung a serious run in all their appliances their next TV should be a 12 K and 300" inches/ or 275" inches think seriously lg both of you Samsung are from Korea you can do a serious run for your money because lg makes better appliances than Samsung but Samsung make a vast productions to be a serious households name to everyone.

    LG could stimulate sellings only by lowering prices for a huge '' models... most of the people who could affort 65'' OLED allready have them... for example i have allready 2 65'' 4K OLEDs and i will definitely not buy 8K or even 16K 65'' for years and years forward till there will be a huge quality difference... but if its 85'' at adecvate price most of the people who have 65'' will think about buy for sure...
    i dont understand wtf is there so much price differences like 6 times in 65'' and even a fucking 77''???

  • Ian Kennedy

    This makes me happy, because it means:
    - SSD must get bigger and cheaper to keep up, it's been ages with old HDD that must be canceled like floppy disks, along with 1080p TV's.
    - 4K will be normalized: Better frames, lesser prices, more tech in general.
    - Graphics cards and other stuff must keep up, meaning we'll soon see plenty of 4K@120Hz and probably 240Hz.
    2019 is a great year for tech.

    Just skip 8K and wait for 16K to be mass available.
    2 x the resolution (not 4 no matter how marketing tries to spin it) is not worth the jump to 8K, it’s better to saturate the market with huge amounts of 4K content first and when 16K is widely available it would have had time to properly bake first.

    For everyone saying "8k is stupid don't need it" that's exactly what everyone said at 4K, and when HD first came out. Always worth pushing technologies to bring down prices and technologies that can be adapted and implemented into even budget TVs of the future.

    • neothehackerV2
      neothehackerV2 5 days ago

      It's not about the material and bla bla. The human eye can't even see 8K. But that's not the point. It's about pixel density (PPI) on huge screens. Like the retina on Apple devices. Higher PPIs allow crisp pictures. I don't think the movie industry will switch to 8K as they switched to 4K quite recently, and material will not be there as even the broadcasters are struggling with satellite bandwidth even with 4K. So see it as a benefit on very huge screens.

      +Fred Zlotnick Well, I don't see 8K content be widely available in the near term. But looking at the accelerated adoption of 4K, you can kind of see how 8K is just on the horizon. 8K being necessary for a 90" TV is somewhat subjective, but you have to admit its pretty damn impressive nonetheless.

      +Fred Zlotnick I'm pretty positive that by 2020 we will have top 8K TVs that are under those prices to buy. Maybe 5-8.000 bucks.
      Not necessarily more expensive than other top TVs.
      You don't have to buy it. But people that wanna be future proof, they will.
      8K is pretty much the benchmark for home cinemas in terms of normal resolutions. So ya, I guess there are reasons to buy it.

    WOW LG is as out of touch with their audience as Blizzard (and most game companies these days). Who the hell needs 8K?!! Crapcast cant even get us a decent 1080p picture delivered and are no idea what to do with 4K standards. Netflix has minimal 4K content and charges extra for it. Also better reword that, 120fps input on 4K? Surely not 8K.
    All I want is, 4K, 120fps input, FALD nanocell or OLED, with a good old FPR coating (let the consumer figure out what to do with that even, our PCs can take care of the processing), with the lowest possible input lag. Why is this so damn difficult?! 2016 is still the year TV's stopped improving. Sad news from CES LG, just sad.
