article imageLG G4 to have a 5.5-inch, extra bright QHD display

By James Walker     Apr 3, 2015 in Technology
LG has released details of the display that is likely to be used on its upcoming G4 Android flagship smartphone. The 5.5-inch unit looks set to be one of the best displays ever fitted to a phone with exceptional brightness and contrast improvements.
The 5.5-inch IPS panel has a QHD resolution of 2560x1440 that will keep every detail precise and sharp. The resolution is currently only used by a handful of other phones including LG's G3 from last year and the Motorola-built Google Nexus 6 and gives an exceptional pixel density of 538ppi.
The display is equipped with "Advanced In-Cell Touch" technology. This promises increased touch sensitivity and the ability to use the display even when there are droplets of water on it. It looks as though LG could be planning a water-resistant handset that can be used even when it is raining outside.
Of note to end users, the new screen offers a 30 percent increase in brightness compared to "conventional" QHD LCD panels. This should keep it visible at all times on even the sunniest of days. LG claims that this has been achieved without increasing power consumption so battery life shouldn't be affected.
The panel also features a 50% increase in contrast levels. This improvement will lead directly to more accurate colour reproduction in images and deeper, richer black levels. The screen also has a 120 percent colour gamut so colour accuracy shouldn't be a problem.
LG says that the display has already been put into mass production ahead of the launch of the G4 on April 28th. Invitations to the event which will be held simultaneously in cities worldwide say that you will be able to "see the Great" but very little is actually known about LG's flagship for 2015 besides the exceptional new screen, claimed to represent a "quantum jump" in smartphone brightness, colour gamut and contrast ratio.
