DigiTimes is reporting that major panel makers are going to begin pushing 8K next year. Despite low yield rates and high production costs, Samsung, LG, AU Optronics, and other major players are expected to produce displays ranging in size from 65” to 98” to entice early adopters, who are expected to comprise only .1% of the total market. “8K is four times the size of 4K, and sixteen times the size of 2K or 1080p.” Judging from the production roadmaps of individual companies, 65- and 75-inch models will be the mainstream sizes of the 8K LCD TV segment. Samsung and Innolux are expected to focus on 82-inch 8K panels; AUO and CSOT may roll out 85-inch models; and Sharp is to release 70- and 80-inch models. However, LG Display, Samsung, BOE, and CEC are also likely to launch 98-inch 8K panels, the sources indicated.
