Report: Samsung and LG saying no to 4K displays on their 2016 phones
given its VR efforts, but it has apparently deemed it too niche of a market for now, tips the report.Today's rumor claims that the two Korean companies have mulled the possibility of issuing phones with a 4K screen, but decided that the advantages will only be incremental to what we already have. Samsung in particular can benefit somewhat from a mobile device with a 4K screen,
Instead, the source spells, the companies would focus on improving the power draw and outdoor visibility of their existing display lines, especially the 1440p panels that will likely go in their next flagships. We can't say that we are disappointed by such a decision, and thus Sony may remain the sole phone maker that offers a handset with 4K display resolution for the foreseeable future.
