LG Display has developed the world’s first Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel for smartphones. The 5.5-inch panel has resolution of 2560×1440 pixels (538ppi), making it the best smartphone/phablet display to date. That’s 4 times more pixels than HD at 1,280×720, thereby reproducing “more delicate colors as well as improving contrast and vividness when compared to current mobile displays.”
Only 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel measured in LCD modules (LCM), LG Display’s new Quad HD panel is both the world’s slimmest and narrowest panel, with 12% reduced thickness compared to the company’s 5.2-inch Full HD panel released last month. Based on Low Temperature Poly-Silicon (LTPS) substrate, the panel also realizes superior brightness of 430nit with improved transmittance and larger aperture opening size.
No word when first devices rocking this awesome screen will be released. Guess we’ll have to wait a little longer to get that information… though something tells me LG’s next phablet in the Optimus G Pro series will sport this kind of screen. Can’t wait.
