LG Display reveals 5.5 inch Quad HD panel with the highest resolution and pixel density on a smartphone display

On Wednesday morning, LG Display announced the first Quad HD AH-IPS LCD display for smartphones. The Korean based company, which brought the first FHD panel for smartphones in 2012, says that the new display offers a 5.5 inch screen with resolution of  1440 x 2560. That would work out to a pixel density of 538ppi and would be 70ppi higher than the industry leading 468ppi experienced by HTC One users.

According to LG Display, the new screen would contain 4 times the pixels used on an HD screen (720 x 1280) and would result in a clearer picture. Colors will be more vivid and viewers will notice an improvement in contrast. The panel will bring "Blu-ray equivalent video" to the smartphone screen. In addition, the screen will allow web browser on a smartphone to view full PC-version web pages without distortion to the image. FHD panels allow viewers to see 3/4 of a PC-version web page. Speaking of no distortion, zooming in on an image will bring distortion-free, sharp text to the smartphone screen.

The new LG Quad HD panel is the slimmest and narrowest panel in the world. It will be only 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel measured in LCD modules (LCM). It is 12% thinner than LG Display's 5.2 inch FHD screen released last month. The screen is also bright with a reading of 430 nit. 

LG didn't announce when the panels might be ready to ship. At this point in time, they offer the highest resolution and pixel density available for a smartphone screen.
