LG Introduces 5-inch 1080p Full HD Smartphone Display

LG have just introduced a new display technology that will make Apple and Samsung revise their products. We are talking about a 5-inch smartphone display with a resolution of 1080p, underpinned by Advanced High Performance In Plan Switching (AH IPS) technology.

LG’s 5-inch full HD smartphone display is a world premiere, as we are dealing with a 1080p LCD display that has a pixel density of 440 ppi. LG’s display is overpassing iPhone 4′s and iPhone 4S’ Retina Display which has a pixel density of 330 ppi. The new AH IPS technology offers wider viewing angles, improved brightness and contrast and faster response times when touched.

LG promises a HDTV-like visual experience, but, of course, on a smaller display.

The new full HD panel created by the South Korea-based company has an aspect ration of 16:9, thus it’s a widescreen that is a significant improvement compared with the latest panels on the segment: a 4.5-inch display with 720p resolution and a pixel density of 329 ppi.

LG also mentioned that the new display’s ppi density increased 30% and has 2.2 more pixels than its predecessor. The AH IPS technology used for this panel makes the individual pixels impossible to see by the human eye, plus it comes with more efficient battery consumption and the colors are displayed more accurately.

The good news is that the first terminals featuring LG’s 5-inch full HD display will debut in the second half of the year, thus we might be able to touch an LG Optimus Vu 2 sporting a 1080p display sometime near the Christmas holidays.
