Alleged screen endurance tests of the 2560x1440 pixels Vivo Xplay 3S pop up
Vivo Xplay 3S is gearing up to be the first phone with 2560x1440 pixels UltraHD display, with the company touting the merits of such a high-res panel, comparing it to the "paltry" Full HD flagships out there.

The phone is expected to sport a metallic frame, 5.7" screen, Snapdragon 800 processor, 13 MP camera and huge 3400 mAh battery. If those aren't making you salivate yet, a few screenshots are out, allegedly from the display panel's testing procedures.

These are endurance testing video screenshots, and show the 2K UltraHD screen being dropped, bent and pressure point tested. Vivo Xplay 3S is expected to be announced December 12th as the first handset with 2K display, and we are waiting with bated breath on the price.

2k is kinda over kill on a smartphone.

I think 2K is also called for 1080p?? This should be called as worlds first QHD phone( 4 , 720p ) .

2k is 1920x1080. Might still be a bit overkill in my view. But I'm not a power user nor I care about picture quality that much. My Nexus 4 IPS display is nice enough for my need but I won't complain to have better. However, I wish they focus on the battery life a bit more instead of screen resolution.

The display war is ridiculously absurd which not only increase data volume usage as the content on Internet increase as same aslo happens on apps and games but battery drain also increases. Please increase battery efficiency by tuning the O.S and optimise it.

I still think 1080p is more than enough for a smartphone

Who cares as long as it is for the same price as the 1080p screen for the consumer? I will gladly take anything good for free, it's better than being stuck in the same resolution for 4 years.

I dont see why staying in the same resolution would be a bad thing,if increasing it would destroy your battery life

oh right that's cuz you had the same battery for four years

This is crazy. Stop increasing the resolution. It only makes the phone lag & drains the battery faster. 1080p is enough.

There is no such correlation between screen pixels and battery drainage. The LG G2's 5,2" 1080p IPS LCD screen is far more efficient than the Optimus G's 4.7" 720p, just like the Galaxy S4's 5" SAMOLED is more efficient that the S3's smaller lower-res screen. While I'd agree that 1080p is enough, why not have 1440p if it doesn't cost you more than any other flagship? The Adreno 330 is sufficient enough for it just like the A320 handles 1080p with ease, se Nex7'13. Lag is SW-related.

Good point. +1. The Note 3's screen is also more battery efficient than that of the Note 2.

whats the point of a higher resolution screen? and your stats dont make sense. an lg g2 with a 720p screen wud be much more efficient than a 1080p screen. that's what needs to be compared & not some old tech with newer tech. more pixels means more processing too so more battery drainage. anything higher than a 1080p resolution on a 5inch phone is retarded imo.

Screen technology is going to become more efficient. Why not have a smartphone that is visually stunning. We will be at 4k by begging of 2016.

Now watch when this becomes the norm.....a phone with a 1080p screen will be considered ...last years tech..... 720p is fine for a screen. Even qHD was enough.

My 768 x 1280 display is more than enough for a phone. People conveniently forget about the detrimental effects that such a high density screen will have - reduced battery life, much more difficult to use with currently available software (smaller icons/text/images,keyboard), performance hit etc..

Higher is always better as long as nothing else is sacrificed. There will be week long batteries when the market requests it. Until then I am fine with thins and sexy plus a ridiculously sharp display. Having more money causes problems like family trying to mooch off you and ladies trying to gold dig you but hey, I'll take it. Just like a screen resolution increase, I'll take it until looking at my smartphone display is the equivalent of looking out a window.
