LG Display Beats Retina Display
LG's forthcoming 5-inch HD panel hopes to shatter Apple's popular Retina display specs...
With the unveiling of the new Macbook’s, Apple’s retina display has once again been receiving a lot of press. But the Apple’s high-density screen could soon have worthy competition when LG finally release its new 1080p HD mobile display.
The display sports a 5 inch panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio and thanks to the company’s AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology, the device has 440ppi (pixels per inch) and 1920×1080 resolution. The low power, energy efficient screen also has a wide viewing angle and rapid response times when touched.
The company claims the specs to be ‘2.2 times denser in pixels, and 1.3 times more advanced in ppi than the preceding 4.5″ panel at 329ppi and 1280×720’.

The hi-res screen said to be the first to allow smartphone users to view full HD content in the same quality as on TVs and monitors. Whilst somewhat comparable, Apple’s Retina display lacks the 16:9 aspect ratio that currently marks the HD standard.
Just like the Retina display, LG’s new HD 1080p screen produces in image so crisp that the human eye cannot distinguish between individual pixels.
Originally unveiled at the, SID 2012 Display Week in Boston, June 4, LG’s 1080p HD display is set to be available for inclusion on mobile devices later this year.
