LG unleashes world’s first Quad HD smartphone display
LG Display has announced the world’s first Quad HD smartphone display.
The 5.5in panel, which features a massive 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, packs 538 pixels per inch (ppi). As the ‘Quad HD’ term suggests, this adds up to four times as many pixels as a 1,280 x 720 HD display.
In comparison, the iPhone 5 features a pixel density of 326ppi, the HTC One has 468ppi and the Samsung Galaxy S4 carries 441ppi.
The South Korean firm also claims that the 1.21mm thick panel is “the world’s slimmest and narrowest.” It will deliver 430 nits and what LG says will be an “optimal viewing experience” on large smartphones.
Meanwhile, last week, the South Korean firm launched its new flagship G2 smartphone, which grabbed the attention of the tech world due to the fact that its only physical buttons lie on its rear side.
