LG has introduced a new 5-inch LCD display with 1080p resolution which the company expects to make available later in the year. Boasting a whopping 440ppi pixel density it easily bests the 330ppi Retina display from Apple’s iPhone 4/4S. The screen is designed for “smart devices”, comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio, 1920x1080p resolution, and utilizes AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology. Found in other LG models, this tech allows for wider viewing angles, better touch response, and an improved color palette. LG plans to release the screen in the second half of the year but will have it on display in early June at SID Display Week, a trade show which takes place in Boston.
