This is the 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display that the LG G4 will likely use

LG Display just announced a brand new 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) IPS panel for smartphones. According to the company, this will be used in a future LG "flagship smartphone to be unveiled at the end of the month." Most probably, this mysterious flagship handset is the LG G4, which is expected to be officially introduced on April 28.

Although the screen size and pixel resolution of the G4 won't change when compared to the display of last year's LG G3, the new IPS panel brings several improvements. LG says that the upcoming display - seen above - offers richer and more accurate colors, thanks to a 120% color gamut. Brightness has been increased by 30% (without affecting power consumption), while contrast ratio is 50% higher than on "conventional" Quad HD LCD screens. Moreover, the new LG-made panel comes with Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT), this allowing it to "respond to touch commands even with water drops on the screen."

5.5-inch Quad HD screen aside, the LG G4 is expected to feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 (or maybe Snapdragon 808) processor, 8 MP front-facing camera, 16 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage space. Interestingly, the new LG flagship smartphone may also come with a dual-mode user experience. Well, we're waiting for April 28 to see exactly what the G4 will bring.

LG display? The same LG Display that made those MacBook screens that had people rushing their Mac books back to the Apple store screaming to God please give me one with a Samsung screen. That LG Display? I think I'll pass. Their designs have gotten better but until I see metal, they're still making the cheap plastic crap they always did. Samsung learned, now its LG turn.

Well, the iPhone 6 display uses an LCD display made by LG, and it's one of the best. Don't be so quick to judge.

The Note 4 uses an AMOLED screen made by Samsung, and it IS the best. Why settle?

i disagree. Id take a well calibrated LCD IPS screen over an oversaturated one

Opinions can be stupid too. Especially when you have facts that make the opinion stupid.

no matter what company says about how accurate S-AMOLED display nowadays, it still an AMOLED screen, it's different with an accurate LCD. i prefer LCD over AMOLED, though AMOLED has deeper black, the purple smearing is a big no for me(it presents in Note 4).

Not to mention the black crush in AMOLED, you lose a lot of shadow detail in low-light photos.

laughs, you haven't even used a note 4, have you? I use my note 4 for messing around with photos all the time, there is no black crush, not on the note 4

Me too, mate. Super AMOLED display's colors are WAY to OVERSATURATED.i'd rather pick the natural colors of IPS LCD.

Do you know anything about Samsung's displays. Their displays have modes. The mode that is default, is the one that hows saturated bursting colors. You can change the display to the more natural mod and the colors are only slight colder vs the 6500 KELVIN. The iPhone is over 7300 KELVIN, which means its really cold and the colors are actually more washed out. The only time an iPhone display looks good, is in the dark.

Oversaturated? You can adjust it in settings.

Over saturated one.? I hope your not talking about the amoled screens on the note 4 or the S6. They have the most accurate displays out there in the smartphone world. And don't get started on the viewing angles of amoled screens over lcd.

You mean the same displays that DisplayMate who is a reputable non-Apple paid shill sho stated as fact the Note 4 display set at a certain mode is much closer to color accuracy? Color accuracy is define at 6500 Kelvin. Since the Note 4 is at 6800 and the iPhone is above 7300, I'd say your statement is stupid, fictional and shows you have no idea what uur talking about.

720p vs 640p. Tired Old Battery gulping inaccurate LCD vs Power Saving, more accurate Amoled. We See your "mile" maybe a mile backwards.

First, AMOLED is not accurate. Second, even his iPhone's battery even blows my Mom's S4 by a kilometer. Also, Retina Display makes the display good enough that you even see any pixelation differences

iphone 6 display looks like a 2012 display next to Quad HD amoleds... the saturated colors argument was busted by respectable sites.. amoled in basic mode are more accurate than lcds

AMOLEDS are currently the best display on phones. You're all saying that LCD ones when configured correctly are, but no has done that yet. The current best display is an AMOLED screen, and it is amazing. No matter what angle you look at it, it feels like you are staring at a piece of paper.

Retina Display? What does that mean? IT MEANS NOTHING> It's a marketing term which obviously worked on your dumb @$$. It has been proven scientifically time and time again that the pixel count required to not eye the pixels with your naked eye, is much higher than 300 PPI. Read this article on Cult of Mac, who are the top Aple Loyalist in the world and they even said Steve Jobs was wrong. Here, please go to DisplayMate and read the shootout of the iPhone and Galaxy S5, Note 4 displays. They rated the S5 display to be the best ever in a smatphone period, over all iPhone models. The S5 was only topped by the Note 4, which was recently topped by the S6. - You need to stop sounding like an Apple commercial/release event of their devices. You are simply parroting what they told you. The IPS display, was cool at first because it packed a lot of pixels into a much smaller space. However, it requires software for it to work. The downside is it made things smaller to pack so many pixels into a much smaller space, that it would have been better to just make the screen bigger. Apple only used those because Steve Jobs refusal to make a larger display. Samsung's 1920x1090p display packs an even amount of pixels into the display and the same goes with the 1440p one. The PPI grows because of hw many pixels are packed into a inch in a display that si so much smaller than a TV with the same resolutions.

connt'd The PPI never mattered before. Apple used that because at the time, the iPhone had the best in class display. It was beaten as soon as the Galaxy S II came put and Samsung never looked back. What the hell is 750p? Its not a standard. You need to reference what is the actual standard display resolutions. Apple has never used them until the iPhone 6 Plus. Even the 1080p display they are using sucks. The colors are cold which gives the white a bluish tone. The colors are washed. In direct sunlight it still has the worse visibility. 1080p is so 2012. Just remember, 1080p started to appear in late 2011. Surely 1080p displays are very cheap now. Right? So why is the 6 Plus $100 more expensive? Yet it costs Apple the same $220 to make the phone. Yet te Galaxy S 6 starts at $599 with Verzion and $680 with everyone else. But look at what you get fo your money. Even at $30 more than the base iPhone you get 32GB o storage vs 16. You get 1440p vs 750p, that's nearly DOUBLE THE RESOLUTION IN WIDTH. You get better cameras with 1.9 aperture and they are 5/16MP vs 1.2 which was standard in 2004 and 8MP which was standard in 2009. The S6 has better construction using higher graded materials. The CPU has dual quad cores that blow the A8 out the water and yet still manages to last longer on a SMALLER BATTERY vs both iPhone models. If you like Apple then like them an be happy. I liked iPhone once and I still do. But liking and buying it are not the same. For what the iPhone costs it should be a much better phone like it was in 2007 and itisn't. It is a cheap feeling, to easy to damage, overpriced, featureless iPod Touch with cellular capabilities. In my opinion its better to buy the iPad Mini and get a bigger display, better resolution, a lower price and no need for a carrier. Then buy another phone that costs less, but offers wifi hotspot and just tether the tablet.

In the same post you give Samsung a pass because they "learned" from their past mistakes, yet you pass on LG because of their own past mistakes?

First of all, u r a imbecile, second of all, u can't read the article. Apple may have ridiculous products(in some's opinion) but they r no idiot to buy Lg displays for their 1000$ MacBooks. Also, the main point of the article is that lg made a improved display, fit for flagship. And if u can't remember, lg's TVs r very famous. And if u r too stubborn to be convinced, always remember, lg's much smarter than u by a million league, no matter how u criticize their tech
