New display from Sharp boasts 5.5-inch diagonal and 806ppi
Is the high-quality screen a key factor for you when you are choosing your next smartphone? If yes, Sharp has something amazing for you – the first panel that boasts the unbelievable pixel density of 806ppi (yes, you saw that right). The diagonal of the announced display is 5.5-inches. It features a resolution of 2160 x 3860p.
The screen is IGZO. It utilizes a conventional RGB matrix (you can expect no issues with the sub-pixel rendering). Compared to the LCD panels, the IGZO displays assure longer battery life and lower noise interference. So when the new display of Sharp will be integrated in smartphones and reach the markets? It seems it will take some time for the company to start mass production.
The expectations suggest that it is most likely to happen in 2016. It might take a year after that until we see the first smartphones and phablets working with the new panel. The 806ppi pixel density is definitely impressive. If we compare the specs of the current flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S6 boasts 577ppi (5.1-inch, 1440 x 2560p), LG G3 features 538ppi (5.5-inch, 1440 x 2560p), Apple iPhone 6 Plus has 401ppi (5.7-inch diagonal).
