LG announces Quad-HD LCD panel for smartphones

Just when we thought Full HD is the king, LG Display has just announced the “world’s first” Quad HD LCD panel for smartphones.

The Quad HD (QHD) AH-IPS LCD panel bears a resolution of 2560 X 1440, which is four times more pixels than HD (1280 x 720). This new high-resolution display measures 5.5-inch across, boasts a pixel density of 538ppi and is capable of producing 430 nits of brightness. In addition, it is only 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel.

According to LG, this new advancement in smartphone display technology “will enable consumers to fully enjoy more life-like and crisp images, and even Blu-ray equivalent video, on their smartphones.”

      ganyan talaga pag anroid OEM, dinadaan na lang sa laki ng screen, taas ng pixel density at sa dami ng cores at laki ng RAM.

      ano pa aasahan mo eh di marunong mag-innovate?

      mangopya pa eperto sila!

    Do we really need 2560 X 1440 resolution screens on Smart phones?

    When more than enough is not enough….Seriously???

    Yung mga laptop screens natin nakapako pa rin sa archaic 1366 x 768 resolution…DAPAT DUN KAYO MAG-CONCENTRATE mga punyetang LCD maker kayo!!!!

    • Ultra hi-def laptops are already in the market. Macbook Pro Retina has resolution of 2880×1800 pixels.

    • abuzalzal says:

      yeah i know sir….but im talking about mainstream notebooks boss hehe, since the priveledged few lang ang nakaka afford nito

      kasi nakaya nilang gawing mainsteam yung 1080p sa smartphone

    • I think it’s a chicken and egg problem. Economies of scale kicks in once market accepts it in other product category. In this case, smartphones are ahead of the pack.

    I say again what I said when the FHD screens start popping up. As extreme as this may seem, I think it’s a step in the right direction. This means that prices for FHD (the next lower tier, in general) will drop a lot, since they will no longer be the top tier technology and will not hold the premium price associated with the bleeding edge.

    I still think HD (720P) is enough for phones. So this would be better used for bigger devices like tablets.

    mejo OA na ung ganitong kataas na resolution sa mga 5-inch screens sa phones,pero for me essential pa rin to kasi di ko naman habol ung taas ng high resolution kundi ung taas ng pixel density kasi gusto ko na magkaroon ng phone na di mo na talaga madidistinguish ung bawat pixel =) tska tama c abuzalzal masyado atang napagiiwanan ang laptops EVEN televisions sa display resolution,sa smartphone wala pang 15k may full hd ka na sa laptop naman kakaunti pa lang ang over 1366×768(puro mga mamahalin) sa mga TV naman 1080p pa rin ung common kahit pede naman itaas tsk tsk

      TVs dont need uber high PPI/DPI density since you view them from a distance.

      For Smartphones PPI/DPI Density is noticeable since you see them more upclose

      An inch looks smaller from a distance compared looking at it up front so low pixel density in a TV would not be that noticeable since you view it from a distance

      For Phones mas halata kasi 4-5 inches worth of pixels are right smack infront of your eyes…
      kaya concentrate ang manufacturers sa small screens

      Then Again…1080p di na visible anf pixels except for gradient colors.

    • wew says:

      nah,even though the viewing distance from the tv is somewhat far compared to smartphones,you can still see that the display is crispier and the quality of the display is higher,tignan mo ung recent yugatech article about the sony 4k tv and magnetic fluid speakers para maniwala ka tska ung cnasabe mo na unnoticeable na ung pixels pag 1080p sa smartphones mali ka din i myself experienced viewing a 5 inch 1080p smartphone at nakikita ko pa rin talaga ung pixels kahit di mo ilapit ung mukha mo sa screen

    Wala bang bagong development pagdating sa battery technoloy? Sobrang luma na ang technology ng Lithium ION at Lithium Polymer-based batteries. Walang innovation pag dating sa battery, this is what I’m disappointed at.

  7. Abujakol says:

    iPad 3 and iPad 4 are the pioneers of these range of resolution in mobile devices.
