Please note that this isn't official information, so it may not be entirely true, but still, why should Digitimes make that stuff up? According to the rumor, the insufficient supply of 1080p screens is partly due to the impressive sales of the Sharp Aquos Phone in Taiwan, which makes use of the same type of screen. Unfortunately, the sources are unsure about exactly when Sharp might be able to catch up with demand. Let's hope this will happen before the major smartphone manufacturers start announcing their 1080p beasts, because 2013 surely shapes up as the year of the Full HD smartphone.
On another note, Sharp may have recently made a small breakthrough with regards to the production of its IGZO displays, and so it is believed that the company will be releasing a phone with such screen sometime this year. Hopefully, Sharp will be able to produce enough of these so that other manufacturers (Apple?) can also use them for their handsets.
Yay!!! That means the world is safe from the eyes cancer!!! Take that droid dna!!! :D

Fine by me. 720p screens for cell phones are MORE than enough in terms quality/detail. 1080p is just a marketing gimmick. it was in the HDTV era and obviously its going to be again in the mobile world

Inside sources claim the Note 3 may have a screen res greater than 1080p, same as nexus 10 but I like many, don't buy that for one sec. 720p will be pretty much be good as dead on any high end android so don't expect that to be the trend this year or next or ever, I would expect mid range to be using these types if screen thus pushing prices up

Couldn't agree with you more. Anyone could simply google it and find out than that the human eye can barely detect the difference between 720p and 1080p. Now if we're talking like 80+ inch screens that's a different story, but if you've got an under 60 inch TV/smartphone, 720p is perfect.

On a 5" display can the human eye differentiate between 720 and 1080?

I've seen the Droid DNA in person, the difference is negligible other than when you are viewing pictures and videos otherwise it is hard pressed to tell the difference. Although the viewing angles are superior to any 720p display I've come across. I have got generally good eyesight so I'm being biased, otherwise for the majority of people, there really is little to difference.

You still cant tell me that there is enough of a actual visual difference (not in your head) to justify the extra horsepower and battery needed for 1080p vs 720p. You cant tell the difference on a TV under like 36 inches.. yet your gonna tell me you can tell the difference at 5 inches on a phone? lol. Its in your head peeps.

I don't feel the need for 1080p smartphone displays as my eyes are not microscopic. They're only big on paper I suppose. What make more sense to me are the flexible display and impressive camera technology.
