ZTE Star 3 could be the first smartphone with a 4K display

The rumor also suggests that the ZTE Star 3 could make use of a TFT Panel with a special crystal structure that is said to reduce power consumption while also improving the strength of the display.
Sharp announced its first 4K smartphone display - a 5.5-inch model with the same PPI of 806 - back in April, but the company said that the panel won't be ready for mass production until 2016. Allegedly, the 4K display on the ZTE Star 3 will be manufactured by China's BOE, and will have very narrow bezels - just 0.55mm thick, according to the source.
Last week, a few alleged renders of the ZTE Star 3 leaked online, revealing a smartphone with a curved back, a bezel-less display, as well as a dual-camera setup on the back.
Just recently, we performed a small research to find out if people can really tell the difference between Full HD and Quad HD displays on smartphones, and the results showed that the extra sharpness is very hard to notice. We have full confidence that it will be even harder to notice extra pixel density associated with a 4K display, although the feature will grant the ZTE Star 3 some bragging rights that the company's marketing team might be able to exploit.
no! Don't take this from Sammy!

I don't see the point of such a high res display on a phone. If it means compromising battery life, count me out.

Officially not 4K but UHD! 4K >> 4096 x 2160 But manufacturers using 4K term for 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution and that is just wrong, it's only confusing people!

Damn never seen so many haters in one place at one time. It's the progression of technology. Everyone should be happy. It means that displayd will get better, cheaper, aND more efficient at a much quicker pace. And all of tech world will benefit... Well except apple lmfao took them 7 years just to get up past 720p or no wait like 750p? That must be the users above

No it's only 4k displays doesn't make any other displays cheaper no one can see the change in the screen and it have less efficiency. And about Apple 350 is not enough for me i need a 400ppi on a phone and nothing beyond.

Most can't tell HD dots from UHD dots without a magnifying lens, and more dots kills batteries faster ... who the h*** is demanding all these silly hi-count dot screens?!?! Certainly no one with a brain.

a "dot" on a FHD 5 inch display is too small to be noticed, but a pixel (1 red dot, 1 green dot, 1 blue dot) can be noticed. it is called pixels, not dots. and more "dots" dont kill battery life (unless you count a couple milliwatts), but it does kill performance greatly.

There are some people with good vision (not to be confused with average, 20/20 vision) who actually want progress here. For example, the subpixel artifacts created by the 388 PPI diamind PenTile display of the Note 3 started driving me crazy (note there are 776 subpixels per inch). Try doing some research on good vision. I can't post links, but google "Notes by Dr. Optoglass: The Resolution of the Human Eye" and "ClarkVision Notes on the Resolution and Other Details of the Human Eye" for a start. If you don't want the high-res flagships, you're welcome to not buy them. I'm curious. Do you also throw a fit that companies make high-end cars that are bigger, more powerful, tougher, or faster than most people need? Those do waste gas after all.

Guys you have to be future proof in technology. with time you have to upgrade your technology/feature in your phone and as a result remain relevant. However some of the manufacturers(like Apple) don't want to offer the same giving the excuse that it is meaningless and accordingly Apple fanboys sing in chorus. I feel it is a great thing to offer the latest technonoly to the consumers. However for some guys grapes are sour. really funny.
