LG Gets Go Ahead to Put 5.5-inch QHD Smartphone Panel Into Mass Production

May 8, 2014 - Written By Ray Greer

LG has yet to launch their new LG G3 device officially, but we still have rumored specs. Some of what we know about the G3 is that it could come with a metal backside, and feature the Snapdragon 805 processor interesting new take on the buttons on the back, and a 5.5 inch display. That display is said to be a QHD display (2560 x 1440), and a recent press release from LG gives a bit of credence to that. According to that press release, LG has received certification on their 5.5 inch QHD display. Just in time for the release of a new flagship device coming up in the first half of the year.

LG has sought the help of a Norwegian company called NEMKO for their display certification. NEMKO specializes in certification for electrical products, and has granted LG the certification needed to mass produce their new QHD display. LG also mentions that this certification comes in time for “the forthcoming (LG) flagship smartphone to be launched in the first half of the year.” This may very will be the LG G3 that everyone has been waiting to see, and will be seeing soon in QHD.

QHD is sure to be the next step for most OEMs when it comes to displays. According to LG the display allows for “four times the image resolution of HD panels.” QHD is also “1.8 times higher resolution than full HD.” As for pixels, this QHD display will house 538 pixels per inch which allows for “100% RGB color reproduction standard.” Essentially this means that they have achieved what is sure to be known as 2K resolution on smart phone displays. This means if Blu-ray online rentals ever become available, you will be able to see them in their full potential on the LG display. LG also mentioned the dimensions of the new display and it is truly the thinnest we have seen-ever.

The thickness of this new QHD display will be 1.3 mm once they have been finished. LG has also said that there will be a bezel that is only 1.15 mm which is the “narrowest available,” That will make the bezel thickness almost cut in half from last years G2- which was 2.3mm. LG’s ISAI has recently been announced for sale in Japan and coincidentally features a 5.5-inch QHD display.
