If youve just treated yourself to a new 4K TV then look away now. The buzzword at IFA this year is 8K with both Samsung and LG revealing their eye-popping goggleboxes.

And the clever tech inside also means they can upscale your old movies to make them look better than new.

So if you think 8K is just another fad, think again as LG has claimed more than five million 8K televisions will have been sold by 2022.
