LG Display is back in the headlines with a first in the world where smartphone panels are concerned – we are talking about the Full HD LCD smartphone panel which has 5″ of viewing goodness for your eyeballs, resulting in what LG deems to be a “perfect cloud computing environment.” Obviously this 5″ Full HD LCD smartphone panel from LG is the highest resolution mobile panel to date in the market, enabling one to experience Full HD content in the palm of your hand, which is of the same quality as that seen on a TV and monitor.
The LCD panel is based on AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology, where it will feature 440ppi (which is higher than the Retina Display on the iPhone 4/4S just in case you were wondering) and 1920 x 1080 resolution, coupled with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Other hardware specifications include the panel being 0.5″ larger and having 2.2 times the pixel density, as well as 1.3 times more advanced in ppi compared to its predecessor, the 4.5” panel at 329ppi and 1280 x 720 resolution.
Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG Display, said, “As smartphones become increasingly valued for how well they do multimedia and with the rapid growth of LTE enabling faster large file transfers, our new 5” Full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market. With the world’s highest resolution smartphone display, LG Display continues to remain a step ahead in developing the most innovative in display technology products.”
I guess the question that is lingering across everyone’s minds would be this – just when will this display roll out? We are looking at the second half of this year, but it will debut at SID 2012 Display Week in Boston from June 4th onwards.
