Huawei unwrapped the Huawei Ascend D2 at CES with a 5 inch screen, 1080p resolution, and the 441ppi pixel density that has become the hallmark of top shelf models; but if the latest leak from @evleaks is correct, Huawei will be showing off a new model in Barcelona that even surpasses the rumored 468ppi pixel density on the HTC M7...

Sorry I still think that anything below 6 inches in display screen size doesn't need a full 1080p display. If it's a tablet, sure but it's overkill on anything below 6 inches.

Much like the Retina Display Macbook Pros, it's more about marketing. The hardware barely drives these screens.
That being said, that Droid DNA has a beautiful display.

no actually, retina display on mac really makes a difference, it's much more crisp and clear IMO

Today's hardware is very much capable of handling these high res displays.

Majority won't even be able to tell a difference. Great placebo effects.

how is it a placebo effect when there is real difference

The problem is that people would want it on 5+ inch because it would be under 300 PPI to make a 720p 5 inch screen, so most people could tell the difference.

If they have the tech, why not? It's ok for a phond to have FHD but i just hope manufacturers shoukd not let the laptops left behind...FHD should be the standard resolution of laptops 13" above..

The pixel density calculated on device comes to 490 ppi. Say close to 500ppi.

How many apps support 1080? Higher resolution the better, in my opinion.
Just wondering what actual use it will be...
Any of the Play movies 1080 either?

Many apps are built so they can scale easily on Android. I think most of them will "support" it but very few non-tablet apps will be optimized for it.

A super amoled 1080p screen all the way, even though i want the xperia z i cant wait for the gs4.

Neither can I. A 1080p super amoled screen is going to be wicked.

Holy crap, a pixel density, of 489! Also, they meant .2 inches smaller than the M7, if it were a 2.7 inch screen with a 1080p resolution I'd be genuinely flabergasted as to why that's not on a watch or something. Good sounding phone overall, if it's a homebrew processor though... maybe not as good, but still. Can't be too bad!

IDC what anyone says. I'd freaking love a phone with a 1080p 4.5" screen.

if 1080p fit in 5" display = 441ppi
then, 4.5" display will be...
(5 / 4.5) * 441 = 490ppi !!
i think 300ppi is enough. I can't even distinguish every single pixel on 342ppi xperia s display.

wow a phone with a 489.534926685 ppi screen! now that makes me torn between this and the sgsIV.

These are killer specs but this phone will most likely be brought down by Huawei's horrible ui.
