After HTC announced the beautiful J Butterfly in Japan last Wednesday, we knew rival smartphone vendors would be rushing to ready their own 1080p smartphones. According to Korean daily MK News, Samsung and LG could be next, with both companies said to be preparing full HD phones for early 2013.
With help from subsidiaries Samsung Display and LG Display, the two companies are said to be “actively working” on 1080p smartphones that will rival the J Butterfly early next year. Samsung is expected to stick with its trusted AMOLED technology, while LG is likely to use the LCD prototype it’s already shown off for its own device.
In addition to this, Pantech, another Korean-based smartphone vendor, is believed to be working on a 1080p smartphones of its own for an early 2013 release. However, it’s unclear where it will be sourcing its 1080p displays from.
The Verge reports that MK News has a “decent record of unearthing early information on the plans of the big Korean companies,” and it previously identified the Galaxy Note II’s quad-core processor and enlarged display ahead of its unveiling. It also notes that 1080p smartphones from these companies seem inevitable in the not-so-distant future.
