Smartphone technology is going beyond the Full HD display for mobile phones. LG Display, a leading innovator of display technologies, has announced that it has developed the world’s first Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel at 2560X1440 resolution with 538ppi for smartphones. The firm’s panel measures up at 5.5-inches and is only 1.21mm thick, and just 1.2mm at its bezel. Company claims that the new 5.5-inch Quad HD panel is the highest resolution and ppi mobile panel to date.
Key Features of LG Display’s Quad HD Panel for Smartphones
- Clearer images with 4 times more pixels than HD at 1,280X720
- More delicate colors as well as improving contrast and vividness when compared to current mobile displays
- Crisp images, and even Blu-ray equivalent video, on smartphones
- The panel features the highest ppi (538ppi) among current mobile device displays
- New Quad HD panel will enable users to enjoy a full view of PC-version web pages at a single glance with undistorted and sharper text, and without any image distortion
- Superior brightness of 430nit with improved transmittance and larger aperture opening size, thanks to Low Temperature Poly-Silicon (LTPS) substrate
According to the company, 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.
“LG Display, which pioneered the high resolution mobile market with introduction of the world’s first Full HD smartphone panel in 2012, again opens new possibilities with the successful application of QHD technology,” said Dr. Byeong-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group. “With this breakthrough, LG Display will continue to raise new standards for mobile resolution and lead the mobile display market.”[Source]
