For the geeks, the new 1600 x 2560-pixel resolution goes by the WQXGA acronym, and means that next year the resolution on your smartphone might be higher than the one on an Apple iPad.
With a pixel density of over 500ppi, the obvious benefits will be that text will appear crystal clear and images even sharper.
Next year, the resolution on your smartphone might be higher than the one on an Apple iPad
We first heard about a 6-inch 1600 x 2560 pixel displays back in 2011 when Toshiba announced it has made an LCD screen with the world’s highest pixel density. Since then, Japan Display and Sharp have also unveiled 1600p displays late last year.
If we had to give out an award for the fastest growing mobile technology, it would probably go to makers of smartphone screens. Just a couple of years ago, the Apple iPhone 4 stunned us with its high-resolution “Retina” display and Android followed up quickly with a ton of 720p devices. Fast forward to today and we have 1080p quad-core smartphones selling for around $200 in China.
To see a piece of that future, right below is a demonstration of Sharp’s new 1600p 6-inch display.
