I would contend the quality of this 88” screen is more a function of the characteristics of OLED rather than going from 4K to 8K. Anyone that has a 65” or 77” 4K (or more properly UHD) OLED knows what I mean. You would definitely need something like an 88” screen to begin to see the difference between 4K & 8K (if you could even find the content) and even then you’d probably need to sit closer to the screen than you’d typically sit.
With that said, I do recall watching an 8K YouTube demo on both my 65” & 77” OLED and it was stunning. Of course I wasn’t seeing anything beyond 4K, but I was probably seeing every ounce of quality & resolution a 4K OLED screen could produce. IMO, the quality of this 8K demo, a city flyover, was largely due to the amazing quality of the cameras and the production efforts rather than the 8K resolution.
To my point though, you could only appreciate every bit of detail by moving within inches of the screen. At that distance, the tiniest bits of 4K detail of this 8K demo could be resolved. Obviously an 8K screen would resolve more, but again, you’d have to be very close to the screen.
