Samsung is making a 11K resolution (2250ppi) mobile display, and is dead-serious about it
This is going to be good! It's the kind of news that could only possibly appear on a Friday, so enjoy it as much as we did. Basically, Samsung is making a 11K resolution mobile display! You heard that right - 11K resolution and 2250 pixels per inch!

Samsung is dead serious about this, working in partnership with the South Korean government, which will be investing 26.5 million dollars in the project over the course of 5 years. As many as 13 domestic and foreign companies are involved in the technology, which has been in development since the 1st of June. The project is named EnDK, and a public prototype is expected to be presented at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

According to our calculations, if this display has the typical 16:9 mobile aspect ratio, the exact resolution will be 11,264 х 6336 pixels, and the screen will measure 5.75". A pixel density of 2250 pixels per inch is up to four times higher than that of current Quad-HD screens, which could stand at up to 576ppi depending on the screen diagonal. 

You'd be right to ask, though, what in our good Lord's name is one supposed to do with this many pixels on their smartphone's screen? Well, Samsung's goal with this is to implement a "3D effect". Details are scarce, but the way Korean outlet ETNews puts it, such a gloriously high-resolution screen is able to simulate the effect of a 3D screen through some kind of optical illusion. We guess that if you throw enough pixels at one's eyes, you can make them believe almost anything!

So, there you have it - 11K screens could reach our smartphones as early as 2019, and that's not even the limit! According to Samsung Display executive Chu Hye-Yong, 11K is merely a "basis for the Korean display industry to take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this". Let that sink in.

Samsung is doing more to optimize battery life, compared to other companies.

They already did and managed to almost double a battery capacity. Just Google it, 'Samsung battery technology.'

If they did and managed to double the capacity then where is it. Their latest and greatest S6 Edge for example. It contains a very efficient 1440p display, 14nm power efficient processor but still far behind the Z3 Compact in battery efficiency....

That would be one hell of a VR display. VR using a display like that would look so real, and you would not even see any pixels. Even today with a 5.2" 2560x1440 resolution display, you can still see the pixels when the device is in a VR case. Remember each eye is only getting 1280x1440 pixels. So with a 11K display, VR users should not see any pixels.

Im thinking less about battery life and more about VR companies using this display in their headsets. With that kind of resolution you could have ultrarealistic and immersive virtual reality!

4K would be enuf for what you said on sub 8 inch screen.

But yeah for a 50 inch screen with 3d its would be nice.

Naw...some ppl claim they arent innovative...and this news pops up to remind them they are.

I cant see this for phones. Maybe tablets or VR like someone mentioned.

Samsung R&D pretty much drives the entire mobile industry.

Processors, memory, screens, batteries.

Qualcomm and their radios would be next.

Man do you seriously think 13 domestic and foreign companies with 26.5 million dollars involved kind of project is just stupid? Get a life. Whenever someone brings an idea of a new tech there will be a million idiots who says the current tech is the best and nothing elsevfrom the futute can beat that tech.

If anything this should insult Christians more because he's taking the Lord's name in vain.

At any rate, I think OP is being sarcastic...

Lord isn't attached exclusively to Christianity. It is Poor choice of wording, but if it had said GOD, encompassing all religions, it would have been better. Depends on you, how you take it. Except to those who don't believe in A GOD. But the original statement already does that.
