Samsung teams with SK Telecom on new 5G-powered 8K TV to fight Huawei

Samsung and SK Telecom will develop and commercialize the world's first 8K-5G TV

5G is already exciting on its own, and the same goes for 8K -- but the world's of super-fast internet connectivity and ridiculous amounts of pixels are being joined.


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".
