There’s a school of thought that says 1080p HD resolutions are wasted on handheld devices, and anything above 300PPI is imperceptible under normal everyday use. Y’know, not shoving your eyeball right up to the screen and/or using a magnifying glass.
Regardless, Meizu’s MX4G flagship is seemingly set to crank things up a notch next year, with a resolution of 2560 x 1536. Insane.
Yes, that’s almost 4 million pixels in the palm of your hand. Four million! The resultant PPI is a ridiculous 543. The late Steve Jobs famously suggested that anything above 300PPI was pointless, and here we are almost doubling that figure.
These are the Meizu MX4G display specifications teased by the Chinese manufacturer’s top dog, J Wong.
Other Meizu MX4G specs remain elusive for now, though the name clearly suggests it’s safe to expect 4G connectivity.
For the record, the current Meizu MX3 has a 5.1in display with 1800 x 1080 resolution, 16/32/64/128GB storage, an Exynos 5 Octa processor (yep, from Samsung), 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front shooter.
Of course, Meizu isn’t the only one contemplating display-based craziness for 2014. Japan Display has unveiled a couple of eye-melting panels, while the Vivo Xplay 3S is tipped to come with a 5.5in display and 2560 x 1440 resolution.
