If you think that the full HD display of your smartphone is amazing then wait until you see what LG has in store. LG Display, a leading South Korean manufacturer of display technologies, has announced that they have created the world’s first Quad HD LCD panel to be used in smartphones. Its specifications will make the current full HD displays look dull in comparison.
The Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel has a dimension of 5.5 inches. It has a resolution of 2560X1440 at 538 ppi. This gives it four times the resolution of HD displays which only has 1,280X720. Current flagship models such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 only has 441 ppi while the HTC One only has 468 ppi.
Dr. Byeong-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group said that “LG Display, which pioneered the high resolution mobile market with introduction of the world’s first Full HD smartphone panel in 2012, again opens new possibilities with the successful application of QHD technology. With this breakthrough, LG Display will continue to raise new standards for mobile resolution and lead the mobile display market.”
The images projected on this display have improved contrast and are very vivid. Viewers will find the images very lifelike. The company even said that Blu-ray quality videos will soon become available on smartphones using this display.
The Quad HD display is 1.21mm and has a 1.2mm bezel. This gives it the distinction of being the world’s slimmest and narrowest panel. It is 12% less thick than the company’s current 5.2 inch full HD display which was released last month.
LG display did not announce yet when this technology will be used in smartphones or which manufacturers are going to order buy the new display.
