4K is for losers. The real mind-blowing screens at this CES are the giant 8K prototypes that will seriously blast your eyeballs. I just saw LG's 98-inch 4K-times-four OLED screen, and yes, it was absolutely insane. I'm not sure exactly how insane though because my eyes just aren't good enough.
I don't even know how to describe. Imagine if the highest resolution screen you've ever seen squeezed down to fit inside itself. There's 4K in the 4K, pixels too minute to imagine, much less see. The result is a vibrant punch to the eyes. It looks like 4K but with the volume turned up. 4K but betterer, with an extra level of razor sharp detail I'm pretty sure is there but god damn it where did I put my glasses? If you're bummed the pictures can't give you the real experience, don't worry; I'm not sure my eyes could. It's the definition of uncanny.
The bonkers resolution is the showstopping spec here, but there's more too it than just that. LG has a whole bunch of buzzwordy technologies at work on this maniacal panel. ColorPrime Nano Spectrum. ULTRA Luminescence. MoNdoViSiOn. OK, maybe I made one of those up. But whatever they all do, it works, and with the OLED screen—Samsung's 8K panel, by comparison, rocks an LED—the blacks are deep enough to fall into.
