Not long ago, Japanese engineers publicly expressed that 8K would be the ultimate technology and could not be surpassed. What he said is really false. At least we'll use 8K first.
According to the report of Nikkei BP, China's LCD manufacturer BOE will launch the first commercial 8K LCD screen in the world. The first customers will be Japanese medical institutions. It is understood that in the summer of this summer BOE will begin to produce a product, which is expected to be sold at about 20 million yen (about 1 million).
According to the introduction of BOE official website, they are the world's first share of LCD display of smart phones and tablet computers last year, and there are 3 8.5 generation panel production lines in Beijing. In the industry, the replacement cycle of screen resolution is generally six years, for example, the brilliant period of 1080p is 2006-2012, and the 4K display is expected to peak in 2018, which is the reason why all manufacturers take the lead in layout.
However, according to Korean media, Samsung and LG will not be able to produce 8K panels until next year. They are solving the problems of low brightness, high power consumption, poor penetration and high cost.
