LG Display, LG's display subsidiary, has announced a new smartphone display design with a 1440x2880 QHD+ resolution which, it confirmed, will be the display panel used on the next LG flagship. As we already know the next LG flagship launching at MWC on February 26 will be the LG G6, that pretty much narrows it down!
It will be a 5.7in 564ppi display with an ultra-wide aspect ratio at 18:9 for what LG Display describes as an "immersive viewing experience," it's also hoped the display will help with Android 7.0 multitasking multi-window features for having multiple applications on-screen at once.
The screen also uses LG's inTOUCH technology designed to make touch responsiveness highly sensitive and accurate, LG suggests there will be zero percepitble delay between touch input and actions occuring on-screen. Other enhancements mean the display panel is very thin (meaning potentially more components can be fitted behind it; larger battery etc.) and allows for narrower bezels along the edges.
Outdoor visibility in direct sunlight is also enhanced, along with a 30% reduction in power consumption; which is a big deal considering displays are the biggest battery hog.
"We expect to maximize user experience and customer value through the super high-quality display with its new 18:9 aspect ratio, which sets it apart from conventional displays for smartphones," said LG Display SVP and head of mobile development, Dr Byeong-koo Kim, "LG Display will continue to set new standards in premium mobile displays, based on its differentiated technology."
