1080p Smartphones Next Year by Samsung and LG

Samsung and LG, the two leading mobile phone makers based in South Korea, are expected to come up with new, top-of-the-line devices next year, packing them with 1080p screens, the latest reports on the matter suggest.

Both companies are expected to pack their handsets with full HD AMOLED and LCD screens, and other companies should follow suit, an article on news.mk.co.kr reads. In fact, Chinese mobile phone maker Oppo is said to plan the release of such a device as soon as this year, and Huawei and Sony have been also rumored to plan making similar moves. The upcoming smartphones from Samsung and LG are expected to deliver a 440 ppi or higher pixel density (current HD 720p smartphone offer a pixel density of over 300 ppi).   According to the news site, LG will launch its smartphones with 440 ppi panels coming from LG Display (LGD). The company has already unveiled such a screen back in May, featuring a size of five inches diagonally.

LG’s full HD smartphone, along with similar devices coming from Samsung, should become official in the first half of the next year. Samsung, currently the top smartphone maker in the world, is expected to release handsets packing full HD AMOLED displays from Samsung Display. As mentioned above, other handset vendors are also expected to come to the market with higher resolution smartphones next year, including Pantech, which is said to be already working on such a device, as well as HTC and Sony. All these smartphones are said to arrive on shelves not only with higher-resolution displays, but also with larger ones. Most probably, all full HD panels will be above 5-inch.

There are only a few large smartphones available on shelves at the moment, but next year might see the 5-inch screens becoming mainstream. In fact, a recent report suggested that the mobile phone market would move to larger screens in the coming years.
