Not content with launching a smartphone with a 5.5-inch QHD display, LG said that it will be demoing a 6-inch QHD panel at next week's Society for Information Display's (SID) Display Week 2014 in San Francisco.
The 6-inch QHD display will feature a pixel density of 491 ppi, which in itself is higher than what the Galaxy S5 (432 ppi) and HTC One M8 (441 ppi) boast. While LG was able to break the 500 ppi barrier with the LG G3's 534 ppi display, the South Korean manufacturer is aiming for loftier goals.
A senior researcher at LG Display mentioned in an interview that development was underway on 600ppi and 700 ppi smartphone panels. He stated that LG was at the forefront of pixel miniaturisation, and that it would be difficult for its competitors to catch up without significant resources. While a tentative timeline was not provided, LG has said that higher resolution displays would make their way onto phablets and smartphones in the near future as 4K content becomes mainstream.
