LG Display, a leading manufacturer of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display, introduced today a 5" full HD LCD panel for smartphones – the highest resolution mobile panel to date. The panel allows smartphone users to view content in 1920*1080 resolution, the same quality as on TVs and monitors.

The LCD panel is based on AH-IPS (advanced high performance in-plane switching) technology features 440ppi and 1920x1080 resolution, providing for the first time full HDTV quality on a smartphone. With 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, the panel is also 0.5" larger, 2.2 times denser in pixels, and 1.3 times more advanced in ppi than the preceding 4.5" panel at 329ppi and 1280x720.

With the high density of AH-IPS, the naked eye is unable to distinguish between individual pixels. AH-IPS panels also express the original color of images highly precisely, and feature a wide viewing angle as well as stable display image and rapid response speed when touched. Finally, with its brighter light transmission and lower power consumption, AH-IPS is ideal for use in outdoor settings.

"As smartphones become increasingly valued for how well they do multimedia and with the rapid growth of LTE enabling faster large file transfers, our new 5" full HD LCD panel is certain to prove a significant asset to the mobile market. With the world's highest resolution smartphone display, LG Display continues to remain a step ahead in developing the most innovative in display technology products," said Sang-Deok Yeo, chief technology officer and executive vice president of LG Display.

The 5" full HD LCD panel from LG Display is expected to be released during the second half of this year.

Probably waiting for Apple to replace Samsung as a panel provider.I would use it for high end cameras and recording devices, not an easy touchscreen to use given the high pixel density.

Yeah Toshiba has some 500DPI screens also for almost 1 year ago.

The article says full HD, in other words exactly 1920x1080. The iphone and toshiba panels might have reached higher dpi, but probably not made in this specific resolution.

Too bad the average eye can only see less than 200dpi at arms length. Seems like a waste of resolution to me.

I don't hold my phone at arms length, do you? But really I understand your point. There is definitely a limit to how much longer anyone is going to care about resolution increases, especially at these sizes.
