Today, LG has announced a QHD display to be used in a “forthcoming flagship smartphone to be unveiled at the end of the month,” which probably will be the G4.
The 5.5-inch display has a 120 percent, sRGB color gamut and a 1,440 x 2,560 resolution with 538 PPI.
Advanced-in-Cell Touch (AIT) technology delivers sensitivity that is responsive to touch even when water drops are on the screen. Instead of putting the touch panel on top of the LCD, the sensor is embedded within the LCD itself, resulting in a slimmer design.
LG claims the display has 50 percent higher contrast ratio than other QHD LCD displays, and it was able to increase the overall brightness by 30 percent without increasing power consumption.
Intertek has given LG a certification for the screen’s color gamut, brightness, and contrast ratio.
The company explains that they were able to achieve this extremely high color gamut by combining a blue LED chip with red and green phosphors instead of with yellow phosphors.
Photo-alignment technology uses UV light to form a liquid crystal alignment layer in the panel in order to achieve a higher contrast ratio with deeper blacks and brighter colors.
With less than four weeks left until LG’s international events, we’ll know soon enough if the G4 is the flagship that will use the display. Look forward to April 28th and 29th.
