LG first debuted the 8K TV earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where it was met with great fanfare. 

At CES 2019, 8K TVs were arguably one of the biggest trends being showcased by gadgetmakers, with LG, Samsung and Sony all jumping into the fray. 

LG's OLED88Z9P is now the largest and highest-resolution OLED TV on the market, according to CNET. 

The screen is a whopping 88 inches with 8K Ultra HD resolution, or four times the pixels of a 4K TV. 

LG also said it's the largest OLED TV it has ever shipped. 

'The TV employs an advanced panel with over 33 million self-emitting pixels to deliver LG OLED TV’s iconic picture quality, ensuring the most lifelike colors in a wide viewing angle, an infinite contrast ratio and true blacks,' LG said in a statement. 

It utilizes LG's Alpha intelligent processor to provide a clearer and brighter picture on screen.
