LG Display has introduced the LG 5-inch 1080p display panel for smartphones. The full HD LCD is touted as the ‘highest resolution mobile panel to date’ and should allow 1080p content to be viewed on smartphones in the same quality as on TV screens and monitors.
The panel is based on Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) technology and accommodates 440ppi at a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. This means that it can account for a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.
“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″ Full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market,” Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG Display, shared. “With the world’s highest resolution smartphone display, LG Display continues to remain a step ahead in developing the most innovative in display technology products.”
The company claims that with the high-density of pixels thanks to the use of this new technology, the human eye is incapable of distinguishing between individual pixels. In addition, these AH-IPS panels are claimed to have a wide viewing angle and a rapid response when touched.
With its 5-inch display panel, the LG full HD LCD screen is 0.5 inches larger and 2.2 times as dense (in terms of pixels) as its predecessor, a 4.5-inch panel with 329ppi and a resolution of 1280 x 720p. And as Engadget points out, it won’t be long before the ‘panel works its way into consumer technology,’ as it is anticipated to do so sometime during the second half of 2012.
Expect to see the LG 5-inch 1080p display at this year’s SID Display Week in Boston which kicks off in the first week of June.
