LG unveils record-breaking display for smartphones

Nowadays, many mobile device manufacturers are participating in the so-called “pixel race”. The South Korean company LG also joined it, having presented the touchscreen display for smartphones with a record resolution the day before.

Yesterday LG presented its new development - a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a working resolution of 2560 x 1440, which corresponds to the Quad HD format. The pixel density is a record 538 ppi. By comparison, the 4.7-inch HTC One introduced this winter has a pixel density of 468 ppi. And now the HTC One screen is the highest quality available on the mobile market.

According to LG, the matrix of the new display is made using the AH-IPS LCD technology.

True, it is worth noting that such a display will consume much more power than simple Full HD screens, and for its correct operation it will require a more powerful graphics processor than those currently presented. But the differences between Quad HD and Full HD will be very difficult to notice.

LG did not specify when the first mobile devices equipped with the new display will appear. But, I think, the release will take place not earlier than next year, and LG itself will be engaged in their production.
