LG Shows Off 538ppi 5.5-inch Smartphone Display – LG G3 Rumors Ignite

LG Shows Off 538ppi 5.5-inch Smartphone Display – LG G3 Rumors IgniteLG has introduced a new super high-definition Smartphone touchscreen, which for all intents and purposes makes the iPhone’s Retina display look like a dot-matrix LCD from 1989. Likely to set an all-new standard for the market when it finally makes it to production, the Quad Hi Definition is a 5.5-inch screen that packs an astonishing 2,560 by 1,440 pixels.

According to the boffins at the South Korean tech firm, the display measures an astonishingly slender 1.21mm in thickness and will feature a bezel no larger than 1.2mm. If you prefer your innovations boiled down to boring statistics, the new Quad Hi Definition screen is technically 12% superior to the panel we’ll be seeing on the LG G2 following its official launch.

If on the other hand you prefer the hard numbers, its pixel density comes in at a retina-busting 538ppi.

“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,” spoke LG Display head Dr. Byeong-koo Kim while introducing the stunning panel.

“With this breakthrough, LG Display will continue to raise new standards for mobile resolution and lead the mobile display market.”

Of course, it took no longer than about 35-seconds from the story going live for the first rumors of next year’s LG G3 to begin circulating.

And with good cause – it usually takes LG a good few months following one of these exciting product reveals to actually put the technology to use in one of its own consumer-oriented devices. As such, with the LG G2 already a reality and a new G Pad tablet PC in the pipeline for the fall, chances are it will indeed be the LG G3 that debuts the technology for the first time toward the mid-reaches of 2014.
