Have you glared at your Quad HD screen a thought, man, I could use more pixels. Well, ZTE has, that is if this new rumor turns out to be true.
According to Chinese site MyDrivers.com, ZTE is stuffing a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution in the 5.5″ screen of their upcoming Star 3 flagship smartphone. This equates to an eye-busting 806 ppi! The source also reveals that phone’s screen will use a TFT panel, with a new crystal structure that adds strength and reduces power consumption.
The Star 3 has leaked before from techgadgetsz.com, giving us a peek at its design. We’re looking at a chassis that is curved on the top, bottom, and back and a border-less display:

Interestingly, on the back there’s a dual-camera set up. Whether the second sensor is for depth sensing or 3D, like HTC has tried before, we don’t know about any other specs yet.
Does it excite you to see 4K resolution panels coming our way or is this overkill? I’m not convinced the extra battery life to push those pixel is worth the gain. Maybe using the phone in a VR headset could justify it.
