It looks like LG is about to win the race to get a quad-HD display on the market, with the company’s much rumoured LG G3 set to pack the resolution, according to the latest news coming out of the company.
It will mean that the Korean firm beats its countrymen over at Samsung to the punch on this milestone. The latter had hoped to release a handset later this year, reportedly, that would ship with a quad-HD display, but it now seems like LG will win the race for this launch, with the company confirming this week that the LG G3 will come complete with this feature.
On top of beating Samsung to this goal, the news also means that the LG G2 will have a major selling point over the other flagship smartphones on the market at the moment. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 in particular are selling well and have been roundly praised, but neither have the sort of high definition screens that LG will be offering.
It could mean many trading in their phones to get their hands on the latest technology and enjoy the highest definition available on a phone screen anywhere.
The company has confirmed that it will be releasing the LG G3 soon – it will hit the shelves on May 27th in some locations – stating that it will ship with a 5.5 inch screen.
This display will stuff in 2560×1440 pixels, compared to the 1920×1080 on offer today which will allow the phone to show incredibly sharp images that may even be noticeably better than those that can be seen on other devices.
Other highlights that have been confirmed by the company at this point include the fact that it will include a much thinner bezel than previous iterations. It will mean that even though the screen is bigger than on the LG G2, the phone itself will be more or less the same size.
The firm did not confirm which kind of casing the phone would carry though, despite rumours being rife in recent weeks that it was looking to make the move to a metal chassis to rid itself of the easily marked reputation its plastic phones have long had.
