LG Display has shown off the screen being used in the LG G4, but the rest of the device is still MIA
LG Display is the display arm of the company and has today taken to the Internet to share with everyone the shiny new 5.5-inch QHD LCD display which will be used in the company’s upcoming device. Though it doesn’t reveal much, it does show that the rumoured “slight curve,” won’t be coming to the new flagship.
“The company has started the mass production of the 5.5-inch QHD LCD panel with IPS technology for mobile devices that will be used in LG Electronics’ forthcoming flagship smartphone to be unveiled at the end of the month,” says the company in a statement sent to Pocket-lint.
The new screen, according to LG Display, delivers a “quantum jump in color gamut and brightness,” and an improved touch sensitivity. It also offers “richer and more accurate colours with a 120 per cent colour gamut, exceeding 100 per cent gamut offered on conventional panels, for mobile devices.”
The QHD display being unveiled has 1440 x 2560 resolution, four times higher than HD at 720 x 1280. It’ll also come with a whopping 538 pixels per inch on the 5.5-inch panel size, almost as good as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with a ppi of 557 – though the Edge has the advantage of an additional screen wrapping around each side.
Along with improved touch sensitivity it also boasts a 50 per cent higher contrast ratio and 30 per cent brighter screen than “conventional QHD LCD panels”.
The LG G4 is set to be unveiled on April 28, something we’re really excited for.
