While we are still praising 2k smartphone displays and complaining about their battery draining issue, brands like LG, Samsung are all set to unveil their 4k display any day.
But, Sharp has just beaten them all in a single swing. Just announced a 5.5inch 4k IGZO display with astonishing 806ppi pixel density.
No one is kidding! It is real now.
Japanese display screen manufacturer, Sharp has surely taken the display industry and especially the smartphone one, by a storm.
Few weeks ago, we were all praising 577ppi pixel density Samsung Galaxy S6 holds onto.
But now it seems like Sharp has climbed the ladder by a huge margin, making every other player in the competition look petty.
The manufacturer not only just announced these specifications but also promised to start the massive production of this display units in 2016. The exact time frame isn’t unveiled for the moment.
What does that mean to you?
You, me, or to everyone out there, enjoying the full HD resolution display featured smartphones, this is an awesome news.
To me, it means that future smartphones with further enhanced display are just a year away. It also means that the current standards will be available for the cheaper price. Do let me know what it means according to you.
We already have camera units controlled by current flagship smartphones that can record and create video content in 4k. But there wasn’t any completely compatible display.
While, we enjoy Galaxy S6 and other flagship smartphones of 2015 with display resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, it’s not that far when we will actually be using a smartphone with massive resolution of 2160×3840 pixels (4k).
Just to remind you, Sharp also manufactured its first Sci-Fi smartphone in 2014 which was having HD resolution display but no bezels at all (edge-to-edge display). Meanwhile, Oppo R7 also leaked recently which is supposed to have an edge-to-edge display with 0 bezels on sides.
And, rumours are also there that LG is into the mass production of 8k displays for Apple (possible for future iMac). It is yet to hear anything from the Samsung labs, but I’m pretty sure that their AMOLED display will be competitive.
With all that going in the display technology for smartphones, let’s turn onto HBO and wait for the Game of Thrones Season 5 to start. After all, what else we can do than wait?
