LG announces world's first Full HD smartphone screen

Smashes 'Retina' quality displays

LG has announced a 5in LCD display for smartphones with a Full HD resolution.

The firm is touting the screen as the highest resolution mobile panel to date. It uses AH-IPS (advanced high performance in-plane switching) technology and features a Full HD resolution of 1920x1080.

Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO and executive vice president of LG Display said: "As smartphones become increasingly valued for how well they do multimedia and with the rapid growth of LTE enabling faster large file transfers, our new 5" Full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market,"

The display tops those found on smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X which both use a resolution of 1280x720. The Full HD resolution spread across the 5in screen results is a whopping pixel density of 441ppi. In comparison the Apple iPhone 4S has a 'Retina' quality of 230ppi.

The firm touts excellent colour representation, wide viewing angles and high responsiveness to the touch. It also said the screen is ideal for outdoor use with its brighter light transmission and lower power consumption.

LG's stunner is due to be released in the second half of the year and will be on exhibit next month at SID 2012 Display Week in Boston.

"With the world's highest resolution smartphone display, LG Display continues to remain a step ahead in developing the most innovative in display technology products." added Yeo.
