I think one problem is it'd be challenge to market flat and curved versions of the same display. How do you price them? If the curve is so revolutionary and supposedly brings all these benefits, it...

I'd take the LG 1080p OLED over any 4k LCD of equal size currently on the market. I can enjoy the vastly superior blacks and contrast all the time versus the higher resolution I may or may not be...

Looks like the article was mistaken. It's LCD, not OLED. In any event, why dangle an 8k anything while you're trying to sell 4k OLEDs? Nice job undermining your own product, LG!
