It wasn't long ago when 4K was considered the market's leading display technology. While many TVs, computer monitors, smartphones, tablets and other display devices still use 4K technology, many manufacturers have since upgraded to 8K.
Also known as UHD or UHD-3, 8K is the highest definition supported by display devices. It's called "8K" because it consists of nearly 8,000 horizontally aligned pixels.

With that said, 8K display devices contain significantly more pixels. They also have over 4,000 vertically aligned pixels, with a typical 8K display device featuring a resolution of 7680x4320.
When comparing 8K display devices to 1080p devices, the results are clear: 8K is the indisputable winner. 8K display devices offer four times the resolution of 1080p devices, meaning they provide clearer, more detailed images.
Whether you are watching a movie or playing a video game, you'll experience a better picture when using an 8K display device.
So, how popular are 8K display devices? Being that the technology is still relatively new, it hasn't achieved the same level of popularity as 4K devices. Nonetheless, the 8K technology is quickly growing.
According to Statista, 11 million 8K display devices are expected to be sold in 2023. By 2025, this number could reach 31 million.
Microsoft has already jumped aboard the 8K bandwagon. Earlier this year, the Redmond-based tech company announced plans to launch a new video game console that supports 8K resolution.
Known as the Xbox Scarlett, it's expected to launch sometime in 2020. Microsoft's current-generation console, the Xbox One, only supports 4K resolution, making the Scarlett an attractive choice for serious gamers.
Countless other device manufacturers have either developed 8K devices or are planning to develop them in the near future. Of course, the increased adoption of 8K technology will inevitably drive down the prices of 8K devices, thereby encouraging sales.
