The consumer electronics behemoth that is LG Electronics has revealed an impressive new smartphone display that is expected to be housed in the company’s new smartphones in the second half of this year.
The panel is a 5 incher, features a super impressive pixel density of 440ppi, with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The display is capable of displaying true 1080p HD content.
This impressive new display seriously trumps Apple’s retina display, as well as Samsung’s 5.3 inch AMOLED 1280 x 800/285ppi/720p screens currently in phones like the Galaxy Note in terms of size versus pixel density output – the Galaxy Note camera records via 1080p – the screen unfortunately is only 720p.
The new LG 5 inch display uses the company’s AH-IPS – Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching – technology, which the company claims delivers improved color accuracy, increased resolution, PPI, and much improved light transmission for lower power consumption compared to standard IPS displays ::::
The display is set to launch in September 2012. The company hasn’t yet announced which phones will be featuring the screen. There are a few potential candidates – it’s rumored that Google’s next Nexus device will launch with the LG 5 incher in the next few months – some tech guru’s are speculating that Apple is eyeing the Galaxy Note, and plans to launch a 5 inch device of its own.
With Google’s Android conference a few weeks away, and Apple’s iPhone press event in October this year, it won’t be long until we know who will receive LG’s new display first.
