LG hit a new milestone today with the announcement of the world’s highest resolution display for smartphones. The 5.5-inch LG Quad HD AH-IPS LCD panel has a resolution of 2560×1440 and packs a pixel density of 538ppi — the highest resolution and ppi mobile panel to date. The Quad HD panel packs 4 times more pixels than a 720p display.
LG says with the new display users can expect more delicate colour reproduction and improved contrast and vividness when compared to current mobile displays. Beyond that, the Quad HD panel will allow user to view PC-version of web pages at a single glance sacrificing sharpness or detail.
At only 1.21mm thin with a 1.2mm bezel, the Quad HD panel is also the world’s slimmest and narrowest panel. Screen brightness is not sacrificed in the pursuit of higher pixel density as well with the Quad HD display pushing a respectable 430nits.
There’s no mention of when Quad HD panels will make it into smartphones but its a pretty safe bet to expect seeing the new display panels in 2014 phone.
The next Galaxy or anticipated as the Galaxy S III is a one of the best guarded secrets at the moment. With just 2 weeks away from its May 3rd reveal, we have yet to see a confirmed leak unlike other smart phones we’ve seen before.
Just recently BGR Brasil has released photos which purported is the upcoming Galaxy S III. They have reported that the device is thinner, heavier and comes with a 12MP shooter. Looking at the photo above, it does resemble the earlier leaked i9300 which isn’t the new flagship phone that we’ve been waiting for.
However taking a closer look at the photo above, there’s a difference with the i9300 that we saw earlier. If you noticed, the front of the device seems to be encased in another body. From the looks of it, it does look like a Galaxy Nexus inside. The front home button looks dodgy and we might potentially see a button-less design in the final product.
It appears that Samsung is adding mock design or cases to thwart premature leaks of its upcoming product. A very smart way to prevent sharp shooters of catching it in public while their product guys are doing real life test. If the “additional” case theory is true, the upcoming device could be even thinner and lighter than what was earlier reported. Since Samsung is extremely cautious, it is possible that there are multiple test prototypes and the final product could be extremely different from what we’ve seen so far.

While the Samsung Galaxy S III rumours going at full speed, a new Samsung smart phone with the model i9300 has been surfacing a lot recently.
The new device comes with a 4.0″ HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280×720. At 4″, this makes it the highest pixel density at 367ppi. As comparison, the slightly larger Xperia S screen has a pixel density of 342ppi while the iPhone 4S at 326ppi.
It is powered by a dual-core Samsung Exynos 1.4GHz processor with Mali-400MP GPU, 1GB of RAM and runs the latest Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Specs wise it looks like a smaller Galaxy Note and it is likely to be a mid-tier model. Over at the front, there’s no capacitive buttons like the Galaxy Nexus as it uses on-screen buttons of Ice Cream Sandwich. Overall, the design looks uninspiring among the crop of latest Android models launched recently.
2 months ago, Samsung has revealed its mid-tier Samsung Galaxy S Advance but so far it has yet to make an appearance in Malaysia. While having faster spec’ed smart phones at medium range prices are a good thing, everybody is eager to see what Samsung would introduce with on its S III.
