LG's new 8K OLED TV will be shown at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which kicks off January 9 in Las Vegas.

However, that doesn't mean Apple will completely do away with Samsung's OLED screens.

LG is shoving the displays of its TV to ever-greater resolutions, sizes, and also most probably prices for the forthcoming CES 2018.

While the recently authorized ATSC 3.0 television standard targets 4K UHD as its top resolution, nothing in the next-gen TV standard would preclude future iterations from supporting higher resolutions, such as 8K, according to a source familiar with the matter.

LG has announced the first 88-inch 8K OLED panel.

Apparently LG will be the one supplying Apple for the 6.5-inch model, while Samsung is expected to continue supplying Apple for the smaller displays. "For an 88" display in your living room, however, you would probably notice an improvement from 4K to 8K.

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.

The LG unit can handle 7680 x 4320 pixels (33 million pixels) and is thus technically ready for 8K transmissions due from Japan's NHK later this year.
