A growing standard amongst phones of 2012 are the 720p 1280×720 pixel displays or variations close to that. Such devices have screen sizes of around 4.7-5.4″ displays – or thereabouts.
It wasn’t that long ago that it was actually Nokia that was ahead in bringing smartphones with high resolution displays. For some reason, we got left behind. 720p displays aren’t even at the very top end any more. LG already has a 5″ 1920x1080p display in the works!
If you think that’s crazy, sharp has a 6.1″ display at 2560 x 1600, first reported back in October. That’s 498PPI.
In terms of just being really high resolution, Sharp is also said to have a 13.5″ display at 3840 x 2160. Now that’s more reasonable, no? I do remember some years back complaints on 17″ screens with 1080p displays. Now there are potential pocketable devices with that resolution and more. I think it would look pretty sweet on a tablet – something that can really show off your PureView pics, no?
Does it make a difference? Well, I haven’t seen these displays, but TheVerge says they look absolutely stunning up close.
How powerful with the phones have to be to push all of those pixels? Does it make a difference? Is there any point? Will we ever reach a stage when the resolution can’t go any higher?
