Like their bitter rival Samsung, LG is a company that prides themselves on making great displays. In the last couple of years we’ve seen LG shrink bezels and bump resolution faster than anyone. LG’s displays are so important that they take the time to separately announce new displays. Today they’re showing off a new 5.5-inch QHD display that will most likely be found in the LG G4.
The new display comes in with a resolution of 1440×2560, which is 538ppi. That’s not much of a difference from the display in the LG G3, but that’s perfectly fine. 2K displays are just starting to become the norm on flagship devices. HTC hasn’t even moved past 1080p yet. Beyond pixels the new display has advanced touch sensitivity and a higher contrast ratio.
LG didn’t make any direct comments about this new display being in the G4, but they did say it will be in a flagship sometime soon. The LG G Flex 2 has already launched, so it’s pretty obvious that we’ll see this display in the G4. More information about that should be available later this month at LG’s event.
