The battle for the best smartphone screen in the world wages on— yesterday, LG revealed a 5.5-inch IPS-LCD panel which uses a WQHD resolution of 2560 x 1440. The density, which is the highest of any mobile screen to date, is 538 pixels per inch.
That’s not all though— the screen is also the thinnest to date, at 1.21 mm, beating out their own record of 2.2 mm set just a month ago. The bezel has also shrunk considerably as well, which is a huge accomplishment considering the increasing market demand for near-microscopic bezels.
This is more of just an arms race, as some have put it, as the technology is currently unrealistic while looking at the processors and batteries we have available in mobile devices. Phones would be way too overworked and wouldn’t be able to handle the crystal clear display.
LG hasn’t said when we should expect to see this display in phones, but late 2014 or within the next few years would be our best guess for now. Check out the full press release after the break.
