LG comes out with the world’s first ‘Quad HD’ 5.5-inch, 538 ppi display
In the smartphone industry, innovation is lifeblood. Unless and until you are offering something that is different from what’s being already offered, you cannot survive. This is why LG has been working on offering something different from the league – it has developed a 5.5-inch Quad HD display that comes with a screen resolution of 2560x1440p and a density of 538 pixels per inch.
If you don’t understand what we are excited about about, here’s the thing in detail. See, up till now Apple was considered the market leader in displays with a 326 ppi retina display screen, while many people aimed at better densities, they could not outdo the resolution or the screen that Apple had on offer. But, with this display, what LG is offering is something even beyond that, since this resolution is more than what’s generally offered on average bi screen displays – 1280 x 720p. LG’s display will give you the resolution of a Blue-Ray video player, on your phone, which is well, nothing less than pure amazing. Earlier this kind of resolution could only be seen on high-range PCs that too for a 13-inch screen at least. The fact that they have packed that into a 5.5-inch display does astound us.
Commenting on the display, LG’s Vice-president Dr. Byeong-koo Kim says,” LG Display, which pioneered the high resolution mobile market with introduction of the world’s first Full HD smartphone panel in 2012, again opens new possibilities with the successful application of QHD technology.

We believe him. Not only that, now with this technology, you would be able to view webpages the way you would on your PC – no nasty mobile versions of anything needed. The display in itself has 1.21mm thin form factor with a 1.2mm bezel, which means it could easily fit into the thinnest of handsets.
LG is currently lagging behind Korean compatriot Samsung in terms of phones but has exciting phones such as the G2 in its line-up. Besides this, like Samsung it also supplies parts to companies such as Apple and HTC for their smartphones. The Quad HD display can give it an edge in both the smartphone and smartphone supply market.
