Samsung and LG Battle for 8K Supremacy

IFA 2018 news

It also beats TCL to market which plans to bring 8K TVs to retail in 2019, meaning there's sure to be 8K TVs sold this Christmas to those with plenty of coin to drop on the very latest and greatest.

While 8K is in its infancy, with no content available to view in such a high resolution, LG claims that the 8K TV market will grow to more than five million units in consumer hands worldwide by 2022.

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.

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".

Still, we can always dream - and in 2022, when 8K TV is supposed to be the dominant tech for your TV, we'll remember this moment, right here.

Samsung said the TVs will feature 8K-ready enhancements, including "Real 8K Resolution", "Q HDR 8K" and "Quantum Processor 8K".

Cornet said she was stunned that the furor had caused so much controversy and was happy to accept the USTA's apology. The good thing is nobody knows who's going to win. 'I think it's very fair from them to apologise to me.

Using Samsung's proprietary 8K AI Upscaling technology, users will get the videos in 8K quality regardless if they are watching content through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or even mobile mirroring.

Samsung introduced the 85-inch QLED 8K TV at the venue, the demand for bigger screens has been increasing around the globe.

The 8K QLED TV also incorporates the existing features already available on other Samsung TVs such as the One Remote, Ambient Mode, One Invisible Connection, Universal Guide, and SmartThings.

If you're heading to IFA this year, I'd strongly recommend you swing by the LG booth in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin to take a first look at the 88-inch 8K LG OLED TV. Like Samsung's previously announced 146-inch Wall TV, LG's massive display uses an array of microscopic LEDs that form individual pixels. However, companies like Samsung and LG are positive that 8K will soon become the new norm.

And, subjectively at least, from a typical viewing distance, the 4K pictures Samsung chose to demonstrate did look sharper on the Q900R, although on closer inspection the picture was softer than true 8K footage. According to the press release, the TV will be available in the United Kingdom from mid-October. It vastly exceeds 4K, also referred to as Ultra HD, which boasts a resolution of 3,840×2,160 and around eight million pixels.

The 8K monster has four times the pixel count of 4K and sixteen times that of your standard HDTV.
