Chinese makers also made a foray into the 8K TV market

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiryTCL, the world’s third-largest TV manufacturer, announced that it would launch an 8K TV next year. It is said that Haier, Changhong, and Hisense have already completed the development of 8K TVs and are pondering when to launch them. The TV industry expects that they will take the wraps off commercial products early next year and launch them within next year.
Sharp, which launched the world’s first 8K TV, plans to launch a second-generation 8K TV this month.
If 8K TV models increase beginning next year, they will compete in terms of various points such as image quality chips, display types, and sizes.
Samsung Electronics uses the Quantum Processor 8K, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based image quality upgrade chip, as its competitive edge. Because of a lack of 8K TV contents, the image quality upgrade function will be the factor that determines the quality of the contents.
“The Quantum Processor 8K is about one year ahead of its competitors’ chips,” a Samsung Electronics official said. “We will continue to take the lead with our competitiveness in QLED 8K core technology.”
LG Electronics is highlighting OLED displays as a strong point. OLED displays are currently receiving the highest evaluation in the premium TV market, so a change will occur in the competition if 8K OLED TVs come out.
The outlook on the 8K TV market is bright. Market researcher IHS Markit predicted that the 8K TV market would grow from less than 20,000 units in 2018 to 430,000 units in 2019 and two million units in 2020. It was forecasted that the TV market would change with a focus on 60-inch or larger TVs.
The TV makers’ shift of focus to 8K TVs may be good news for the display industry too. This is because the green light has been given to the expansion of 8K panels, which are somewhat expensive, and demand for large-sized panels is expected to grow.
