Display battles between smartphone manufacturers has been going on for quite some time now. Since the introduction of ‘Retina Display’ by Apple, other companies have invested millions of dollars into bringing higher leveled technology into their smartphones. Other companies such as HTC and Samsung have been very successful in bringing the latest and best technology to their headsets and into their customers’ hands.
HTC One, for example, currently has 469 ppi pixel density in the display. While holding the phone, you can see the sharpness in the display, although you cannot really notice the difference between high resolution displays. But this does not stop companies from using this latest technology in their marketing tactics in attractin customers. Now, LG has brought something new to the table which is surely to ‘wow’ a lot of folks.
LG on Wednesday officially announced (via AndroidPolice) that it has created a new display panel with 538 pixels-per-inch (ppi) density. The display size is at 5.5-inch and is only 1.21 millimeters thin with a 1.2 millimeter bezel measured in LCD modules., making it thinner than any other display in the world. This brings LG to becoming a world record holder for pixel density. The company has topped out Samsung, it’s home turf rival.
It will be interesting to see how other companies respond to what LG has now brought to the table. In the recent years, LG has really stepped up their game in competing for smartphone dominance, currently ran by the duopoly of Samsung and Apple.
