Kiss 4K goodbye, because of this 2019, Reign of 8K TV models are bound to rule your viewing experience. While we were enamored by 4K in the past years, a new technology is set to take us by storm. The 8K technology is an innovation attributed to two major telly brands: LG and Samsung. In a period when 4K had just reached more users, it seems like releasing 8K is a big distraction.
But based on the features, it’s worth giving 8K a chance. Here’s what you need to know:
What is 8K technology?
It seems like 8K is just a double version of 4K. But by doing a little math, it’s actually four times the pixels of what 4K has and 16 times with that of HD TV. It translates to a resolution of 7,680 × 4,320 that’s over 33 million pixels.
In comparison, 4K only has 3,840 × 2,160 and over 8 million pixels. That alone is a massive upgrade from the last technology and as 2019 TV technology.
Actually, 8K has been in development ever since 4K started taking off. There’s an insatiable appetite for clarity which pushes TV brands to keep innovating and coming up with new offers. In fact, a portion of the 2016 Rio Olympics was shot and shown in 8K in special theaters.
So if you’re looking for 2019 TV models, here are 5 8K sets you shouldn’t miss:
