    Samsung isn't the only company pushing the envelope on mobile display technology. LG just unveiled their newest creation for smartphones and it's pretty ridiculous. It's a Quad-HD AH-IPS LCD for smartphones and it can display a whopping 2566 x 1440 resolution on a 5.5-inch panel. This translates to a gargantuan 538ppi! According to LG, this new display also provides a wider range of more delicate and more vivid colors.

    This new screen tech isn't just about gorgeous looks though. Apparently it is also thinner than current tech. The panel is 1.21mm thick, and has a 1.2mm bezel in LCM making it 12% thinner than their previous displays. LG's Vice President and Head of Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group Dr. Byeong-koo Kim said,

    Of course, as beautiful as this display likely is, it does make you wonder how much battery life this thing would drain... Do you think it's worth it to have phenomenal displays even if you have to constantly charge your device?

    look at the pic - holy bezel, Batman!

    Way, way way overkill. And my main opposition is battery life. Otherwise it's probably like looking thru a window (a tiny 5.5" window).

    It says the bezel is only 1.2mm. The black frame in the picture must just the test device which is probably a lot easier to handle with a huge bezel.

    I think that's just the proto display. At the top it says "LG Display," so I'm assuming that it's just the prototype display with enough functionality to show it off. In a picture frame type hardware case.

    Um... it's a low-res pic of a hi-res screen. It's kinda like a near-sighted person watching an HDTV.
