LG has announced that the 5.5-inches Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel it had been working on has been approved and will be showcased in its next flagship. The next flagship here is the LG G3 which will be launched on the 27th of May and is expected to come with the recently showcased 5.5-inch screen which has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
As per LG, the 5.5-inch display unit has “four times the image resolution of HD panels and 1.8 times higher resolution than a full HD panel.” The pixel density of the new screen stands out at 538 ppi which is “100 percent RGB color reproduction standard.” LG has surely backed themselves up this time around in the screen department to see that there’s nothing that bogs them down.
The thickness of the panel is quite slim at just 1.2 mm. To top it off, it has a really think bezel of just 1.15 mm. LG G2 in itself had a bezel of just 2.3 mm which in itself is pretty thin by even today’s standards but the LG G3 with the new panel is ready to take things to the next level.
The Quad HD panel will go into mass production as soon as the LG G3 units start getting prepared for the retail shelves.
“This product fulfills the core qualities of smartphone displays, which are high resolution and slim design, and I believe the consumers can enjoy vivid images that are close to real life with this display. LG Display will continue to maintain technology leadership in the super high-resolution smartphone display market above 500 ppi resolution, which will take off this year,” said Byung-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT/Mobile Development Group.
