LG unveils enormous 88-inch 8K TV at CES 2019

CNET reports that Samsung's line of 8K TVs offers upscaling, but for a TV that size you'd probably want native 8K.

Full View delivers a large-screen viewing experience revealing the full extent of the contrast, depth and realism. LG has created a TV with a display that seems to magically appear and disappear, a revolutionary innovation that seems to defy logic. However, the company wants to be recognised for being more than a budget-brand, thus the introduction of an 8K Quantum Dot TV at CES this year. This TV "reimagines space" and "addresses the human need for an aesthetically pleasing environment", LG's USA senior director of product marketing Tim Alessi told the audience this morning. "The panel is of 65" dimensions - we now don't have any more information about the technical specifcations of the panel, other than it is seemingly powered by LG's newly announced second generation Alpha9 SoC. The Smart TV from LG comes loaded with Amazon Alexa voice assistant and it also supports Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. One that makes the TV more utilitarian is Live View which lets you use giant controls when listening to music, view photos from your phone, and more. A "full view" mode gives you the complete 65-inch display. Meanwhile, in the "zero view' model the display is completely hidden". The clock mode can be used to check the time and weather and the frame mode to enjoy family photos shared from a smartphone.

LG's new Signature Series OLED TV R will be available in the second half of 2019, with no details on price. The premium bloodline is clearly evident in the entire unit, from the brushed aluminum casing to the quality wool speaker cover designed by Kvadrat of Denmark.

The magic of the unfurling (the term we've given to the TV unrolling itself from the stand) remains a bit of a mystery, a short instructional video LG put together shows the TV being rolled up on a spindle inside the base.

LG has created two Crystal Sound technology OLED televisions generations already in the past.

Apple AirPlay and HomeKit support are also being added.

The LG brand was established in 1995.
