Guess who announced a 5.7" QHD AMOLED display with record pixel density (hint: it's not Samsung)

You sir are 100% correct... In an Austin Powers voice "She's a man baby"...

"QHD IS OVERKILL! Human eyes can't tell the difference! Do something with the battery instead!"

Nyah......as long as it isn't Samsung not many would say that.

QHD IS OVERKILL! INCREASE THE BATTERY SIZE. (I don't fear your reverse psychology BS)

I agree, battery is much more important.

The only thing you said that is right is "Do something with the battery ".
Everything else is just bogus BS you are spewing. In the world of technology things move forward... The next step in the evolution of the Smart Phone screen is QHD.
It's just the way it is... It's NEVER overkill.
Just you wait, battery tech will jump significantly in the VERY near future, so please just keep it together.
Technology constantly evolves, & it's NEVER overkill. It makes everything better & better.

Actually in the past 15+years of mobile phones, the thing that has evolved the least is the battery. Yes ok its got a bit smaller and the power has gone up a bit but its been only a gradual increase compared to EVERYTHING else which has shot forward at crazy speeds. I do wish that batteries would take a bit of a leap forward. There should be no reason to think that for example a galaxy note 3 cannot have a minimum of 5000mAh battery. Giving probable usage times of 2-3 days on med to high use. Not to much to ask i dont think :-)

It will, it will. It's inevitable.

Quotation marks. I said I'm waiting for comments like that, because that's the sort some people say when the topic is like this.

So hard-pressed to even tell the difference between 359ppi vs 441 ppi !!!
But hey, I ain't complaining...513ppi is a huge welcome....I just hope these OEMs will still give us the 720p/1080p option in the years to come

Just give a damn option to CHOOSE RESOLUTION in settings!!!

AU Optronics are well known for their AHVA displays (similar to IPS and PLS)
Very good to see them competing with Samsung's AMOLED displays

AMOLED production is costly with high interval of deviation (means more difficult for quality control) in a high quantity production.
I don't think they can find enough orders to get over the initial fix cost for that.

i am waiting for smartphone with 4k/8k display

I welcome QHD displays. They are going to put more strain on a phone's internals but I think that it would be nice to have such a high resolution. I currently have the note 3 which has the best display I've ever seen. Being a samsung galaxy owner for the past few years i have seen amoled displays get better and better. I think a amoled display of this size would be awesome. I really look forward to seeing samsung's 2k Super Amoled display. To me they make the best Amoled display's period. When I look at my first galaxy s and compare it to my note 3 it shows how far amoled displays have come.

That's not surprising. Word's first OLED TV Sony XEL-1 panel was made by AUO.

I thought Samsung is the only company who can make AMOLED display. Now I know... Samsung is overrated
26. redbaronk12 (Posts: 40; Member since: 14 Dec 2013)
Resolutions are high enough already. Make a super bright amoled that's efficient.

"...dismissed OLED as a viable alternative to LCD, citing yield and cost issues" Really? So Sammy has just been bleeding money on all of those millions of phones over the past 2-3 years?

Don't think this is necessary , it'll drain the battery so fast that it will not even last for 4 hours let alone if you end up playing mobile games maybe less than an hour. They need to focus in fixing battery longevity .

that's what people say when Full HD 1080p comes to phones

Super capacitor. Nano tech, charges in 20 sec, 10x more charges than our modern lithium ion battery.wonder how long before its available...

Even if Samsung had this technology, they wouldn't have released it because they haven't applied on the new GS5.

Yeah overkill, but as long as it doesn't drain the battery I'm cool with it.
