Many of us haven't even upgraded to 4K yet, but Samsung may be preparing to launch the first 8K QLED model during IFA at the end of August. That's based on the really big sign the company's already posted in Berlin, where the show is taking place.
Twitter poster @LeogringoD mentioned last week, with a photo of a Samsung sign boasting "QLED 8K Prepare to be amazed at IFA" and "See nothing else":
It's not news that Samsung's been working on an 8K set. The company first showed the CES 2018 in January, and quietly announced in a presentation at the QLED and Advanced Display conference in June that it would be releasing several 8K models this year. But thus far, exact timing and price have remained a secret.at
Samsung's not the only company working on one, either. At CES,concept model as well.
Now it looks like you might even be able to gift yourself one for the holidays.? We still haven't seen 4K content prevail over HD in the mass market, and the necessary power and bandwidth to transmit and is just beginning to arrive. Though at Gamescom as is rumored, you might want to connect the TV to your gaming PC, since there's still only available.
We asked Samsung to comment and expand on the billboard's meaning, but didn't immediately hear back.
No, 4K isn't about to become obsolete.
: But is 8K really twice as good as 4K?
