Plans To Debut 8K TVs In Year 2018

While most of us are just getting used to the notion of 4K televisions, there is talk of plans to debut 8K in the year 2018. Sharp and Foxconn are building in Guangzhou, China as several states in the U.S. are bidding for the plant. Michigan and Wisconsin are at the top.

8K UHDTV is 7680 pixels wide by 4320 pixels tall (33.18 megapixels), which is sixteen times as many pixels and four times the spatial resolution of current 1080p HDTV.

Actually there are six states in the hat including Wisconsin, which has valued the proposed investment at more than $7 billion.

Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and North Carolina are considered as possible locations, according to this business report.

If you think technology is getting ahead of itself, the 11K TV has already been discussed by Samsung.

No sweat you say. If you are interested in the next-level 8K monitor by Dell, you will pay only $5,000 to possess the bragging rights to friends. I suspect not many will be in the market to buy this unit, but Dell hopes this idea catches on.

I don’t know about you, but my old scratched up monitor is looking better by the minute. As the mercury hits around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, I’m more interested in the air conditioner. Please don’t fail me now!

Have a good one and try to stay cool.
