It is indeed really hard for manufacturers to keep secrets regarding their new devices these days. In the case of LG’s next flagship smartphone – the LG G4, many rumours regarding it have been flying around for quite some time. Today, we can put one particular part of those rumours to the rest as LG has officially unveiled the display panel that it will be used for the new flagship smartphone.
This was confirmed through the official announcement of the new display panel which contains this very sentence:
The company has started the mass production of the 5.5-inch QHD LCD panel with IPS technology for mobile devices that will be used in LG Electronics’ forthcoming flagship smartphone to be unveiled at the end of the month.
The unveiling of the new display has pretty much confirmed the rumour that the LG G4 will come with a QHD (2560 x 1440) display. There’s more to the 5.5-inch display panel than just having a high resolution though as it also has 120% sRGB colour gamut and pixel density of 538ppi.
Not enough with that, LG also stated that the display comes with Advanced In-Cell Touch technology that apparently allows it to have good level of touch sensitivity even if there are water drops on the display. Additionally, the display also features another technology called photo-alignment that gives it better contrast ratio.
As mentioned earlier, this is just one part of LG G4. There are still few more weeks to go before we are able to see the actual device which will eventually reveal how LG truly utilized the newly announced display above. So, stay tuned then.
