“4K OLED has played a role in reshaping the TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.”

It will be on display exclusively at this year's IFA consumer tech conference in Berlin.
The company says that "with OLED TV shipments in the market expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022, LG will continue to increase the OLED share in its premium TV portfolio and drive large scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs."
"While the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, it is expected to grow to more than 5 million units by 2022 and LG is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology."
Availability, pricing and specifications for Australia for LG's first 8K OLED TV have yet to be determined.
