If screens are an indicator of a manufacturers success in the mobile market, LG is well on its’ way to a huge recovery. Apple brought us “Retina Displays” with the iPhone 4S, and Samsung has had the Super AMOLED display for some time – with the HD Super AMOLED coming soon in the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Today, with much fanfare and pompous, LG unveiled their 5 inch full 1080p HD LCD panel. The display comes with 440ppi, giving it more pixels per inch than Apple’s iPhone 4S and Samsung’s Galaxy S III. Additionally, this clear advantage in pixels is achieved with a 5 inch screen, which we all know is bigger than the other two.
Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG Display, states
As smartphones become increasingly valued for how well they do multimedia and with the rapid growth of LTE enabling faster large file transfers, our new 5″ Full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market. With the world’s highest resolution smartphone display, LG Display continues to remain a step ahead in developing the most innovative in display technology products.
So as LG takes the leap above the top two smartphone manufacturers, we certainly hope that rest of the device takes the leap as well. For those wondering when you’ll be able to experience these new displays, it looks as if the second half of the year is the earliest date of arrival.
So what do you think about this? Too much? Let us know!
