LG kicks off smartphone pixel war, unveils a 2560×1440 QHD smartphone display
LG has taken the lid off their newly developed 5.5-inch smartphone display that brings high definition to a different level.
Today, the company announced the arrival of a smartphone display that boasts a 2560×1440 resolution. Some may say that such a display resolution is overkill for smaller devices, and others may be all for the QHD (quad high definition) display. Whether or not you see the benefits of having an ultra-high resolution mobile display, there’s no denying that development in smartphone displays are progressing much faster than other segments of consumer tech—especially, PC monitors.
Tragically for many traditional PC users, not a lot of efforts were put in place to push for adoption of ultra-high resolution displays. Some manufacturers have produced PC displays with resolutions beyond 1080 to cater to the enthusiasts, but as far as the masses go, the go to resolution is still 1080p.
Mobile computing is the trend, and handset makers are constantly trying to up one another through all means possible. The QHD display from LG is certainly something we can look forward to if OEMs decide to utilize it in their products. In the meantime, though, let’s just sit tight and hope it’s not just another horn tooting announcement to boost brand recognition.
