LG Display has announced that its 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD panels designed for smartphones have been certified and are ready for mass production. LG Display, a separate company that shares corporate parents with LG Mobile, then went on to confirm that the panels will show up in LG's flagship smartphone set to launch in the first half of 2014. We've already established that phone will be the LG G3, so this just serves as more confirmation.
The announcement also sheds light on what to expect from the G3 display. LG's AH-IPS LCD panels have a 2560x1440 resolution, which will come out to an eye-popping 538 pixels per inch. Brightness and colors are expected to be good because LG says it has 100 percent RGB color reproduction and the same brightness level as Full HD (1920x1080) panels despite challenges to the form factor. LG explains:
"It is difficult to raise penetration ratio in higher resolution panels since they have more pixels. However, LG Display successfully achieved higher brightness by improving the penetration ratio through enhancing the pixel structure design and aperture ratio in the LTPS backplane."
LG is hosting a media event later this month that will reveal more information about the LG G3.via: Android Central
