Apple set the bar a while back with the 326 pixels-per-inch (PPI) "Retina" display on the iPhone 4, but it’s not massively uncommon to find eye-melting displays on the latest flagships. The Sony Xperia S and HTC One X, for examples, both break the 300 PPI mark.
But hold onto your hat, Gloria, ‘cause LG has a display up its sleeve with a whopping – wait for it – 440 PPI.
The display measures 5in diagonally with a 1080p resolution, making it – LG boasts – the highest resolution display in the relatively short history of smartphones.
Using an Advanced High Performance IPS panel, LG promises sexy colour reproduction, wide viewing angles, super brightness, and lower power consumption.
Individual pixels (all 440 of 'em per inch) will be indiscernible.
The 440 PPI display is set to debut in Boston next week, and it won’t be too long before it hits shelves. LG reckons the 440 PPI display will make an appearance in the second half of the year.
