LG debuts first fullHD mobile display at 1080p (Iphone retina display killer)

Smartphone displays are becoming larger in
size, and along with that, we’re seeing a nice
trend that’s bringing greater pixel density.
While LG Display’s newly-announced 1080p
HD mobile display isn’t the most pixel dense
that we’ve seen — a distinction that belongs
to Toshiba — the five-inch panel is more
appropriate for consumer applications and
boasts an impressive pixel density of 440ppi.
Its 16:9 aspect ratio was designed with HD
content in mind, and the LCD technology isn’t
anything to sneeze at, either: it’s a variant of
IPS known as Advanced High Performance
In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS), which is said to
boast wide viewing angles, fast response
times and improved brightness efficiency.
Best yet, it seems that consumers won’t have
long to wait before the panel works its way
into consumer technology — the five-inch HD
display is set for availability during the
second-half of this year. 5″ Full HD display, creating perfect cloud
computing environment
Seoul, Korea (May 28, 2012) – LG Display
[NYSE: LPL, KRX: 034220], 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. Allowing
smartphone users to view Full HD content in
the same quality as on TVs and monitors, LG
Display and next major internet trend.
LG Display’s 5″ Full HD LCD panel is a step
forward past existing mobile display
technology. The LCD panel based on AH-IPS
(Advanced High Performance In-Plane
Switching) technology features 440ppi and
1920×1080 resolution, providing for the first
time Full HDTV quality on a smartphone. With
16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, the panel is
also 0.5 inches larger, 2.2 times denser in
pixels, and 1.3 times more advanced in ppi
than the preceding 4.5″ panel at 329ppi and
1280×720.
“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,” said Sang-Deok Yeo, CTO
and Executive Vice President of LG Display.
“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.”
The display solution of choice for smart
devices, LG Display’s AH-IPS is the
technology behind the new Full HD LCD
display. 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.

expected to be released during the second
half of this year, and will be on exhibit for the
first time at SID 2012 Display Week in Boston
