LG shows off 'first' full HD LCD for smartphones
5in, 440dpi screen, anyone?
And the latest entry in the 'how many pixels can we cram into a phone display' stakes comes from LG which today announced a 5in in-plan switching (IPS) LCD with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.
It's the first full HD screen for a handset, LG claimed.
Do the sums and that yields a pixel density of 440ppi. That's than enough to ensure the human eye can't distinguish one dot from the next.
This, the company pledged, "significantly advances the cloud computing experience widely considered the next major internet trend".
You can tell it's not the engineers that write this stuff, can't you?
In fact, they're all too busy ensuring LG can make good its promise to ship the 5in 1080p screen before the year is out. ®
I'd prefer a 15" laptop with that PPI.
Now can they make a 15" laptop display with this resolution?
However, if Apple had crammed that amount of pixels into an iPhone, we'd hear you blathering on about how magical and revolutionary it was, right? And how horrible Androids were because they didn't have that many pixels.
Obvious iTroll is obvious
I'm not so sure about that; the bezel on my phone has protected the edges of the screen from quite a few bumps that I suspect would have cracked the display.
Is there any chance that the phone when it's released will have the same size bevel as that screen she's holding?
now that my telly has a near invisible bevel around the edge, i find myself longing for borderless images, from the phone, to laptop, advertising billboards at my train station.
A phone with an edge-to-edge screen would be fantastic. And would look great at this resolution too.
