1080p screen support coming to Windows Phone later this year

0. phoneArena 09 Apr 2013, 09:48 posted on

As the saying goes, better late than never! Anonymous sources claim that Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system will finally get support for 1080p screen resolutions. That is supposed to happen before 2013 is out with the launch of the third General Distribution Release update for the platform...

Dude, where are you from? Nokia is OK right now, and akki20892 hopes that the Catwalk will support those beasty specs and he wants to replace his old N9 to the Catwalk.

No companies are dying right now, ok? :P

Not just support up to 1080p. I would like to here Nokia coming out with the FUll HD + Motion. That sounds much better. This will totally beat all those 1080p screens.

Google and Apple will yawn at this news, but this could possibly be a problem for BlackBerry.

Now that Microsoft has done it, Blackberry, your move, or you'll lose out. 1080p isnt a necessity for me on phones, but it's like a trend, if you dont follow, you're screwed.

Why go into tablet teritory with 5" screens?!
FHD is good but maximum 120-130 cm length is the way to go for a phone.

If it is 10.7mm thick and 70.6mm wide, it doesn't matter how short it is. It is effectively harder to operate with one hand and harder to pocket than most 5 inch phones.

70 mm wide - 16:9 format - it's a 121 mm long.

Maybe it will be an HTC Phone. A Mix of the HTC Arrive and the HTC One with Windows Phone 9 or Windows Phone Blue.

1080p support on phones isn't needed. What IS needed is for MS to pull it's head out of its ass and kill piss poor 1366x768 support on tablets.

Some people can keep their mouth shut or fingers in their pockets now!!
Or are you still trying to figure out something to poke your noses in?

1080p on mobile phones is completely useless in my opinion, first of all you need a more powerfull hardware (more $$$), games running at 1080p will tax the GPU too much which will affect the battery life. TVs can barely break the 300 PPI barrier and now phones are gettign way over 400PPI!, that's crazy. All I want is a screen with better viewing angles, better color reproduction, better response time, better contrats. Over 300 PPI is already perfect.
