LG Display has introduced a new 5.5 inch panel with resolution of 1440 x 2560 (QHD). The pixel density works out to 538ppi and should be employed on LG's next flagship model, the LG G3. The display has been certified as QHD by Norway's NEMKO testing and certification organization. The panel is set to go into mass production soon, and will have the narrowest bezels available at 1.5mm.That is .05mm thinner than the bezels on last year's panels...

I was turned off by LG displays after the Nexus 4.
I want a comparison between this and Samsung's QHD SAMOLED.

The screen on my Nexus 4 was flawless, just a marvel of clarity.

I do know some people got bad Nexus 4 screens -- with visible LCD panel structure lines and such.

My Nexus 5 display is also brilliant
I can only see the LCD panel structure lines in direct sunlight, so I don't think its a major issue

It is a good news since I prefer LCD over OLED. :)

No advantages, only disadvantages for battery and CPU resources

Great stuff from LG. I hope QHD really takes off and is available on many phones later this year.

This awesome 5.5" IPS display will beat the AMOLED in every aspect.

Only if LG is able to provide great battery life like G2 even at such high resolutions

This was a big worry when 720p came out and then when 1080p came out. As we know now, many FHD phones have pretty good battery life. I am sure the industry will figure out how to get good battery life from QHD as well.

I think FHD phones have good battery life because the devices got bigger and thus allowed for bigger batteries.
M7 and Nexus 5 are examples of FHD phones that aren't up to par in the FHD phone battery life department.
QHD phones are even bigger and now we'll be seeing 4000 mah soon.

Yes, that is a good point. A bigger screen allows for a bigger battery.

Keep in mind, though, that while the screen uses a lot of power, background services also use up a lot of battery. Look at Samsung's "Ultra Power Savings" mode on the S5. They turn the phone to grayscale mode, but also disable tons of background services. Disabling those services is a huge win for battery life. So LG could use some intelligent service management to keep up the battery life.

That's pretty big assumption. Let's just wait for Displaymate's review to be fair.

Samsung still have there mighty SuperAmoled+ display to compete and it is better than any screens out there

Let's just hope Nexus 6 somehow use this screen but with better battery. Battery isn't what Nexus devices good at up until now.

Well, oneplus one is going to destroy all the big names by taking a poop on their chest with top of the line specs for half the price. G3 will still be a monster nonetheless

OnePlus is destroying themselves because the One is not available in many countries.

OnePlus is making problems for themselves because they built a massive hype wave using hunger marketing and all sorts of gimmicks and then massively underdelivered.

Hopefully they will make a better showing once the hardware begins to ship and they expand where they are selling phones.

Did we forget about Sony?

No we didn't forget sony! The thing is that their screens always look foggy so they can't compete with the best screens on the market.

This is the most important point. All these companies are playing the hunger marketing game.

While it sort of works when one company does it, it massively fails when every company does it.

Marketing innovation is no longer hunger games, but giving people facts and actually having product to sell.
