LG announced early Thursday that its 5.5-inch quad HD panels have received the necessary certifications that are required before passing to production. Typically we would shrug that kind of announcement off, except this involves the company’s next generation super high-resolution 2560 x 1440-pixel displays, and LG confirmed that it will be included on its next flagship.
“The certification comes shortly before the new Quad HD LCD panel will be unveiled with the forthcoming LG’s flagship smartphone to be launched in the first half of the year,” LG said in a statement. The device it’s referring to is the G3, which LG has already confirmed will be the topic of its press conference on May 27. The company confirmed that the panels will enter mass production soon and that the screens have 538 pixels per inch (ppi), sharper than anything else on the market.
The firm also said it ran into one issue while redesigning the panels. Apparently it’s harder to get the same brightness that a 1080p display delivers, due to the increased number of pixels, but LG was able to overcome that problem by tweaking the pixel structure and aperture ratio.
Check out the pictures above for some samples of what the screens look like. Pretty stunning.
