    Apparently, Samsung's mobile display arm have been drinking from the crazy water well. While consumers debate on whether 2K or 4K displays are even relevant on a small mobile screen, Samsung's mobile display arm is supposedly developing a monstrous 11K mobile display for the future.

    Additionally, the South Korean Government is actually playing an investing role by earmarking $26.5 million over the course of 5 years to help Samsung create this IHD (Insanely High Definition) display. (We made that name up.) To put this 11K display in perspective, it would pack 2250 pixels per inch, which supposedly is so rich, it gives off an almost 3D quality. Considering how well that tech was received (Amazon phone-fail), we are not holding out much hope that this will be a viable solution for Samsung.

    From the sound of the report, it seems they are developing it just in case some other future tech makes it viable. Well, I guess you gotta stay ahead of the Joneses, but it seems pretty dumb to us. Share your thoughts.

    Is it practical? No.
    Should Samsung continue to push the boundaries of smartphone technology? Absolutely.
    It's pretty outrageous sure, but then again it's this type of innovation that keeps Samsung ahead of the pack.
    We hear statements all the time like, "I want to be wowed", or "give me something new & different".
    You can't ask for cake and then not eat it because, well...that's just rude. lol
    Maybe their next announcement will be an ultra thin 27,000mAh battery... this display is going to need it!

    I heard these screens were probably going to be used for things like VR displays where high pixel count is kind of needed or you get the screen door effect. I got a Google Cardboard last week finally and even on my Nexus 6 4K display, you still see the pixels. Not near as bad as I'm sure on a 1080p display and I just wanted it for the coolness of playing with VR, but it was still quote noticeable.

    They're going to need something really special in the battery area to support this thing...but hey...that could make phones with lesser displays have really great battery life...so...this could be a great step in that direction...

    Innovation is rarely the product of rational thinking...or so I've heard.

    Great so that means instead of 8 hours of battery life we will be down to 2 hours.

    Cool idea but better for a tablet than a phone.

    By the time they get this all worked out, it wont be that far ahead. When the Droid 1 came out, everyone was saying "its like a small computer in your hands!" Big display, interactive, icons, full keyboard, decent camera, it was innovation! Then we moved up to wanting bigger physical displays, so we HAD to increase pixel density. Looks pretty awesome doesnt it! :D I have the G3, and I can still see the individual pixels. What should be smooth curves are, for the most part, very smooth, but I see a lot of detail, and I can still see some jagged parts to the curves. Going up in resolution would be kinda nice actually. If you go up far enough, you begin to blur the line between an object in the physical world, and the same object in the virtual world. Looking at your phone would be like looking out your window, or being face to face with your friend from up close. Image being able to distinguish every hair on someones face, whereas now you get a little detail, but it mostly blurs up. It only LOOKS better because of motion blur.

    As for the power needed to make the screen function, it wouldnt be as drastic as you might think. As you shrink the size of the LED, you lower its power requirement. Shrink it down 5 times smaller, and your using slightly less than 1/5 of the power. Of course, you then need to INCREASE the number of pixels to get your 11k density. So blow up the density by 3 times, and your still UNDER your power rating from the original display. However, brightness might be a problem, as being that small, its hard to emit enough light to be visible. But combine all the pixels together, and thats not so much of a problem anymore.

    11K displays will have uses, no doubt, especially in tablets. Actually, now that I think about it, it would be VERY helpful in tabletop screens, like your exhibit sized 4' by 8' tabletop displays.

    They are doing this more for the reason of developing the technologies required to make such a display.

    This will not be in a phone.

    They said themselves that it was mostly to advance the behind the scenes tech that it takes to make this happen. I'm sure they have a much grander scheme than that paltry 11k lol.
