At CEATEC Japan, the Japanese equivalent to CES, Sharp has showcased a 27-inch display which offers a resolution of 8K (7680x4320), a refresh rate of 120Hz and full HDR colour support. 
This display has four times the pixel count of a standard 4K display, 2x the refresh rate and offers HDR support, which means that this monitor requires roughly 16x the display bandwidth of a standard 4K display, which means that this prototype uses multiple display inputs to function.

This display offers a pixel density that is similar to modern smartphones, with the screen itself being very thick by modern standard due to the complex control modules that are required to drive this display. 

This monitor has a IPS screen, a refresh rate of 120Hz and a pixel density of 326ppi, making this one of the highest end displays ever manufactured.

This display is only a prototype, but it is certainly using technology we will see in PC displays eventually, just like we have seen with 4K and HDR displays.

Curious as to which connectors it is using. Still.. If it were avaliable for purchase in a 40", it would be an instant buy unless it costed something like 4x4k monitors.Quote

Na 8K is out dated now, 12K is where it's at Quote

This has to be a concept monitor?

So we will see tech used in this panel next month, year, decade LoL?

And what is the technology will we be seeing in consumer products? I'm genuinely interested.

It's a prototype, as pointed out in the article. It will be years before we get them in any kind of consumer ready quantity. 4k isn't even mainstream, introducing another standard is counter intuitive to adoption rates of higher quality TVs. Not to mention prices on these would be laughable!Quote
