It looks like the era of 720p smartphone screens may already be behind us as manufacturers like Sharp, HTC, Oppo and others usher in a new era of 1080p displays for the next batch of superphones. My how technology advances!
According to Engadget, Lenovo has decided to join the 1080p party with a 5-inch, dual-sim superphone that runs on China Telecom’s CDMA2000 network and China Mobile’s 2G network simultaniously. Screenshots of the phone that were posted to Sina Weibo earlier in the week (but since taken down) seem to indicate that Lenovo’s offering will come with a slightly skinned version of Android (probably of the 4.0 kind). According to the source, the phone has been in testing for quite some time and could be set for release any day now.
1080p screens should have Android fans everywhere salivating, as even our own Robert Nazarian claimed that it’s truly a sight to behold. Now if we can only come up with the battery technology to feed those power-hungry beasts.
Anyone planning on getting a 1080p phone next year? Do you think 1080 pixels is overkill?
