Samsung has announced a new partnership with SK Telecom in which the two companies will develop, and commercialize the world's first 8K-5G TV. Huawei has teased it would announce the world's first 8K-5G TV later this year, so it looks like the race is on between Samsung and Huawei right now.

Park Jin-hyo, Chief Technology Officer and Head of ICT R&D Center at SK Telecom explains: "The 5G-8K TV is the culmination of ultra-low latency 5G networks combined with ultra-high definition TV technology. 5G technology will help make the world of hyper media a reality".

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
