LG Display shows world's first QHD IPS 2560 x 1440 5.5-inch LCD

updated 11:47 pm EDT, Tue August 20, 2013

New display to see market some time in 2014 on tablets, phones

LG Display announced today that it has developed the world's first Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel for smartphones. At 2560x1440 with 538ppi, the new 5.5-inch Quad HD panel is the highest resolution and PPI (pixel per inch) mobile panel to date, and provides a glimpse at what's next after current Full HD smartphone panels such as those used in the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

LG Display's Quad HD panel for smartphones realizes clearer images with four times more pixels than HD at 1280 x 720. The higher resolution allows for more accurate color representation as well as improved contrast and vividness when compared to current mobile displays.

Only 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel, LG Display's new Quad HD panel is the company's slimmest and narrowest panel, with 12 percent reduced thickness compared to the 5.2-inch Full HD panel released last month by LG Display. Based on Low Temperature Poly-Silicon (LTPS) substrate, the panel also realizes superior brightness of 430nit with improved transmittance and larger aperture opening size.

No individual pricing or wide release date has been announced.
