8K Assault: LG and Samsung's tremendous excessive-res TVs are right here
We’re barely emotionally adjusted to the existence of 4K, and already tech corporations wish to the subsequent massive factor. Sharp put its $one hundred thirty,000 8K TV on sale final yr, whereas this week each LG and Samsung confirmed off “actual” ninety eight-inch Tremendous Hello-Imaginative and prescient screens. LG stated its 8K tv would go on sale within the second half of this yr, however did not specify a worth. Samsung does not have a launch date or worth for its TV both, however the greater query of what you’ll be able to even join to those behemoths additionally has no reply. The final time I noticed an 8K broadcast, it wanted an Web 2 connection and a decoder the dimensions of a doghouse simply to work, so it is in all probability nonetheless a couple of years away from being possible. Nonetheless, if these hit the market then perhaps they will take a touch from Dish’s Hopper three and watch 4 4K movies directly.
