Innolux to mass produce 5
Whether or not you think it's necessary, it looks like there could be an invasion of full HD 1080p displays coming to smartphones sometime soon. A report has come out of Taipei that display manufacturer Chimei Innolux will begin mass production of 5" full HD displays in Q1 of 2013.

Just so you don't have to pull out your calculators, a 5" display that is running full HD resolution would have a pixels-per-inch rating that blows away the competition at a whopping 443ppi. No word yet on what devices would be using this display, but it is expected to keep Innolux competitive. 

Other companies are also working on similar displays. LG showed off a 5" 1080p display earlier this year, and both LG and Samsung are expected to launch 1080p smartphones in the first half of 2013.

What if the next iPhone will have a 1080p screen? Will you still be saying "leave me alone"?

So you welcome a retina display but not anything better? With that logic we may have just stuck with resistive touch screen that are like under 3 inches.

At a whopping 443 ppi: a 5 inch full HD display gives 440.58 ppi not 443.

Maybe the displays are actually 4.97", but the report says 443ppi.

Like iPhone 4/4S displays are 3.54 inches instead of 3.5 mentioned?

People get nervous when there are too many decimal places, so we try to keep it simple.

No current smartphone display even comes close to that."

Isn't the droid DNA a 5 inch full HD screen with 441ppi? Or is it that 2 ppi really is that much?

Hmm gee called this crap months ago when the HTC butterfly was announced then the DLX was rumored then found to be the DNA. People said the 1080p was not even noticeable and it was overkill no one needs it blah blah blah... And I said that quit talking crap and embrace the advancement in technology because come 2013 every flagship is going to be boasting a 5"1080p display. And once all the haters carrier or favorite manufacturer announced that it would have one available everyone would be jumping ship and praising it.

And to all the retards who think they are funny and will chime in.... YES I DO WANT A COOKIE
