Worlds First 4x HD Display from LG

Here at Coolsmartphone Towers emails zip back and forth like ants in a jam jar.  A good 80% of those are from fellow writer Ronnie Whelan boasting about how good the display on his latest Oppo is.

Well, Mr Whelan is about to be silenced as LG have announced the worlds very first quad HD display for mobile devices.

The screen measures 2560×1440 pixels and is a 5.5″ panel.  This gives a monster 538ppi.

Dr. Byeong-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group said.

“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.”

According to LG, the display will enable users to enjoy a full view of PC-version web pages at a single glance without image distortion; a contrast to current Full HD displays which only realize 3/4th of a full screen. Also, even when enlarging the screen, users will be able to enjoy undistorted and sharper text.

There is no word on when this technology will filter into the new generation of handsets or of cost however bearing in mind it is only 1.21mm thin and with a bezel of only 1.2mm it could lead to some even more beautiful looking devices – even with the peppers!
