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.
