In the last couple of years the sizes of smartphone screen have seen a dramatic change where screen sizes are concerned. What used to be the norm of a small 2-inch, 3-inch screen is now seen as paltry compared to the much larger 5.5-inch screens of the modern phablet smartphone. The want for bigger screen sizes though has also brought the need for higher resolutions. A 5-inch screen might sounds like a good idea at first, but if it has a really low resolution, the images are going to look distorted and you might as well have just gotten a smaller phone in the first place.

Thankfully then, it appears that manufactures are always one step ahead as Techblog today is announcing that Sharp is working on a 5.5-inch 4K display with a whopping 3840 × 2160 resolution. That’s a lot of pixels condensed in such a small space. Sharp states that event though the screen resolution will be considerably bigger (we all know that pixels love consuming power), the screen will still be battery efficient and have low power consumption. For now we can’t really know much as the screens are not slated to be used on smartphones until later next year (and Chinese manufacturers will be the first to have access to them). If you wish to know more about the screens, you can follow the link below for more information.
