LG have confirmed to Engadget that the rumours are true. The Korean phone maker will provide a mobile with four times as many pixels as some other mobiles on the market and it is also rumoured it will also support a 5.5 inch display.

The phone is expected to premier this summer. The new, next generation, flagship mobile phone is confirmed that it will have a Quad HD resolution which beats both the Samsung Galaxy S and the Sony Xperia Z2. It will support a pixel density of 530ppi against the Galaxy’s 432ppi and the Xperia’s 424ppi.

This is all well and good, but what different will the additional pixels really make? It has not yet been confirmed that the human eye will be able to tell what the additional pixels will give to the screen. Previously, in China, they have had a couple of phones that have high pixel and resolution quality which has helped to keep their writing a little clearer but for the rest of the world, it is yet to be seen if it will make a difference.

The impressive new device is expected to be released for public sale in Autumn and although, the specs have not been officially confirmed, it is expected to also include the following features:

  • 2.3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS
  • Fingerprint recognition technology
