Demand for ultra hi-resolution touchscreens is expected to increase
Ever since the launch of the iPhone 4 with its 640x960 pixel resolution and amazing 330 pixel density, the tech world started talking about pixel density as an important factor in a phone's display. Now, pretty much every new flagship model that comes out features a high-definition screen of 720x1280 pixels, providing extreme clarity of the displayed image. According to Digitimes, this trend is to continue and even increase, as it sees demand for such hi-res panels grow even bigger in the future.

Citing its ubiquitous industry sources, Digitimes claims that while devices with ultra high-resolution screens are currently mostly popular in developed economies, more and more users from emerging markets like China are starting to consider those products. As a matter of fact, while the pixel density standard in China has been under 200 ppi in 2011, it has now grown to 230-260 ppi, which is a substantial increase.

With the proliferation of new display technologies like the IGZO display, which allows for even higher resolutions, it is believed that mobile device resolutions will continue to go up with extreme rates in the following years.
