LG reveals 5 inch smartphone screen with Retina display besting pixel density of 440ppi
LG's new 5 inch display has a higher pixel density than the Apple iPhone 4 and 4S
LG has announced the world's first 5 inch Full HD LCD Smartphone panel that offers 1080p resolution and a 440ppi pixel density. The latter easily beats the 330ppi Retina display on the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S and is made from LCD technology called Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS). This technology allows for wider viewing angles, improved brightness and fast response times when touched. The new display is said to give smartphone viewers the same viewing experience as those HD television viewers and those using HD computer monitors.

The new panel has a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and is a major improvement over the previous 4.5 inch panel which had 720p resolution and pixel density of 329ppi. Additionally, the new 5 inch display is 2.2 times denser in pixels and offers 30% more pixels per inch. And the AH-IPS technology used on the display makes individual pixels impossible for the naked eye to pick out allowing for precise reproduction of color. You might think that a panel that offers a brighter display would use more battery power, but no, that is not the case with the new LG display. The screen consumes less battery power than other displays in its class. The display will be released during the second half of this year.
