LG P930 coming with 720x1280 screen, pixel density to outgrow Retina Display?
The LG P930 might not see the light of day in the next couple of weeks or even months, but we can bet on the fact that LG has already started plotting its next-generation flagship and the LG P930 is one very possible candidate for that throne. Folks over at UnwiredView have uncovered the mystical Android-running LG P930 in an XML spec file posted on LG’s website, but given the 720x1280 resolution it seemed unlikely that this could be a phone. The P-series in the name however matches LG’s initial for its phone lineup whereas the only tablet of the company – the LG Optimus Pad – carries the V initial in front of its model number. But even more importantly, the ScreenSizeChar attribute in the XML file shows 15 characters fitting in a row and a total of 13 columns, which suggests a handset. A weird handset which puzzlingly seems to have a better resolution, while at the same time fitting less characters.

The puzzle got one step closer to being solved after news broke yesterday at screen-centric SID in LA that Toshiba is demonstrating a 4-inch 720x1280 pixel screen boasting a pixel density of the whopping 367ppi, a significant addition to the 326ppi on the iPhone 4. In addition, the company has reportedly mentioned that the new technology will make it to retail this year. Bottomline? This could well be the next big thing from LG in line with the LG Optimus 3D P920, or what seems to be the predecessor of the yet unannounced device in terms of model numbers.

The rest of the information in the uncovered XML file brings nothing all that surprising – HSUPA/HSDPA as well as EDGE/GPRS support sounds pretty standard. The device will also come with 3 soft keys. The rest is pure speculation, but some sources are theorizing that this could well be the Google Nexus 3. We’d take this with a huge grain of salt, but we’re surely looking at something interesting, so stay tuned as more information is sure to come out soon.

Apple cant sue LG.. LG MAKES the Retina display that apple uses. Apple can call it whatever the hell they want but they cant sue the person that actually owns the tech.. lol

Not possible,Steve Jobs assured devotees that retina was the best and had the absolute maximum resolution the human eye can ever see so this must be a lie. Apple are always the best and no other screen can be better even if it does has much higher resultion and brightness or contrast because if it isn't on a iphone it doesn't matter. Steve Jobs will soon clear this awful blasphemy up soon with us loyal servants and ease our minds that he was correct with retina display and that apple loves us

It's been almost a year now, and no phone could match the ip4's resolution. But of course the iphone is playing catch up, lol.

Still playing the victim I see. Yes, it is possible that a phone with the highest ppi to still be plying catchup in the eyes of others. But who knows, maybe Apple will revolutionize the industry again with the iPhone 4s or 5.

lol playing catch up? to me a resolution higher that what the human eye is not a priority when you can focus on other aspects like visualization under direct sunlight more vivid colors and power saving instead of making something you ant actually appreciate, I bet if android had higher ress and you will be saying you don't need it, and why do I know this? because is the same thing you said when your iPad2 screen resolution was lower than the ones on the android tablets.... that just mean you are just another hypocrite
