When it comes to Android manufacturers, competition is fierce. A modern day capitalist arms race, one could even argue the “spec wars”are maybe advancing mobile technology too fast. With the announcement of the Japanese HTC Butterfly J and its almost ridiculous full HD 1080p 5-inch display, the rest of the Android world said it’s game on.

According to MK News, Samsung, LG, and Pantech are next in line to introduce the new round of high-end smartphones superphones with 1080p displays to make your eyes bleed. These full HD smartphones are said to be arriving before the second half of next year, with Samsung sticking to their tried-and-true AMOLED tech, and LG going with their IPS LCD.

Looks like the Korean OEM’s will bringing the pain next year, and now we’ll have to wait for chipset makers to introduce new and more powerful CPU’s to push all those pixels. But what say ye? Are you guys excited for 5-inch 1080p devices? Does it even matter? Are your eyes even special enough to distinguish the new “unseeable” pixel density?
