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.
