LG has unveiled a new smartphone, which the firm claims has the world’s first Full HD smartphone screen.
Featuring a display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and a 440ppi pixel density, LG’s newest offering includes a display based on Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching technology. LG claims it’s this AH-IPS technology that provides high colour fidelity, wide viewing angles and rapid response speed.
“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-inch Full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market,” commented Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO and executive vice president of LG Display.
The introduction of Full HD will put the new smartphone ahead of the iPhone 4S in terms of pixel density, but with Apple looking set to announce the iPhone 5 at its WWDC conference in June, we wonder for how long.
