Skyworth W82 Smart OLED TV is said to be the first Original Brand Manufacturer (OBM) bendable display. The W92 also adopts a flexible panel and they both come with 8K resolution, making them some of the early smart TVs to have support for 8K resolution.

The W92 is equipped with an 88-inch OLED panel with an 8K resolution of 7680×4320pixels, four times that of a 4K TV. The screen also supports a 120Hz refresh rate, a configuration that isn’t very common in the TV market. It also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 standards and is equipped with Skyworth’s AI image quality engine 8K version.

The smart TV is also equipped with two built-in independent MEMC chips to upgrade the already extremely high-definition 8K picture to the ultimate performance of 8K 120 frames,  which should give the most detailed and extremely realistic visual output on the large screen.

It also features Skyworth’s self-developed Acoustic Glass Sound Technology. Skyworth claims this is an industry first and it uses a whole glass as the diaphragm and four 30-core electromagnetic drivers that are evenly distributed on the whole glass plate to directly drive the glass to produce sound.

Immersive sound output is achieved using Point-to-face sound transmission. The sound system also includes the self-developed Acoustic Built-in Bass Drum and pneumatic tweeters to form the sound matrix of the TV’s audio system.

The sound output is said to be full and clear.The TV is also equipped with a 12MP gimbal AI camera with three-axis rotation which allows the camera to shoot in all directions.

The camera’s CMOS adopts a large single pixel area of ​​1.55μm*1.55μm, with f/1.76 large aperture and it can capture clear images under poor lighting conditions. It can realize functions such as family care, panoramic family portrait, portrait tracking video call, etc.

The Skyworth W92 8K OLED TV will retail for a staggering RMB 199,999 (~$30,521). It will be sold on Jingdong and other channels in China.
