Another LG world’s first: Quad HD LCD display for smartphones

Another LG world’s first: Quad HD LCD display for smartphonesThe LG World’s First cabinet is positively stuffed with accolades, including World’s First Dual-Core Smartphone (as recognised by Guinness World Records) and World’s First 3D Tablet.

The latest addition to the trophy collection is for World’s First Quad HD LCD Display, as announced in a beaming press release.

The world’s first Quad HD LCD smartphone display has a resolution of 2,560 x 1440. Multiplying out those figures, that’s exactly four times the pixels of a 1,280 x 720 display (hence Quad HD).

Measuring 5.5in diagonally, the world’s first Quad HD LCD smartphone display has an eye-melting 538PPI (pixels per inch). That’s almost double the proposed cut-off of 300PPI (it’s argued that anything above that is pretty much imperceivable).

In further number-based boastage, the world’s first Quad HD LCD smartphone display is just 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel, making it the world’s slimmest and narrowest panel. You can also expect brightness of 430nit.

"LG Display, which pioneered the high resolution mobile market with introduction of the world's first Full HD smartphone panel in 2012, again opens new possibilities with the successful application of QHD technology," screams Doc Byeong-koo Kim, VP and Head of LG Display's IT and Mobile Development Group.

"With this breakthrough, LG Display will continue to raise new standards for mobile resolution and lead the mobile display market."

The South Korean manufacturer doesn't mention when we can expect to see the Quad HD LCD display in action, but let the LG G3 rumours start here.
