South Korean technology companies like LG and Samsung have always prided themselves on their quality displays, and the upcoming LG G4 will stay true to this. The company showed off the 5.5-inch QHD display on its next-generation flagship smartphone yesterday, one which comes with an eye-searing 1440×2560 resolution, which is 538ppi. While this isn’t that different from LG’s previous flagship, that’s just fine because the LG G3’s screen was ahead of its time anyway.
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.
