Funny. I heard people saying the same thing about 1080 screen not too long ago. It might be bragging rights to say they did it first. Who knows, but why do nothing but complain about innovation and advancements in technology?

Sounds good on paper, but real usage, doubt it be any different on small screens and need a huge battery to last 1 day. Doubt peoples are willing throw "slim" design for 4K res clumsy smartphone. Bring 4K resolution to TV instead!

Why continue to push the ppi # when what we are using now makes pixels indistinguishable to the human eye? I agree that battery life should be a focus along with their flexible displays! 800+ppi is useless on a smartphone!

The shortsightedness and stupidity in the comments on this site astounds me. With the way so many idiots here talk about "this is enough" or "that's too much" we'd be back with 4.3" phones with 1280x720 screens that everyone said was big enough. Why go past 1280?? Sure, right NOW you don't see the benefits of a 4k screen or whatever tech is coming in the future.. but I can guarantee that one day you'll be happier than hell it's here. We have NO IDEA how some of this tech will impact our lives. While you may think it's overkill and not needed now, be thankful that there are people who DO see the benefits. I think it's pretty safe to assume that along with the high pixel counts of future displays, work is also being done on reducing power consumption and also battery tech improving as well. Think a bit before making so many idiotic comments.

I think that these "idiotic comments" is what helped put that phone you like so much in your hand today. Think about it, if you were a company and wanted to make a bada$$ product where would be the most informative place to look on improving... that's right comments! It's not like those companies hand out questionnaires or anything. And last I remember, this is a comment section, not a "let's scold all who disagree to disagree" agree? There's No need to be salty McAngry

What if their future screens consume less power at higher resolutions? Or even the same. Maybe their WQHD phone screens will use less power than their FHD screens. The future is exciting. For example, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 at 2560x1600 consumes less power than the iPad Air at 2048x1536. (According to DisplayMate)
