Full HD resolution with 443 PPI. I don’t like my current phone already.


Smartphones may someday replace your TV screen (you wait and see). While it cannot compete for screen size (just yet), it certainly has the resolution upto muscle. Japanese manufacturer Sharp said it has begun production on 5-inch 1080p displays for smartphones. The Full HD resolution is paired with 443 pixel density, which to bring it into perspective, is higher than the iPhone 5′s ‘Retina Display’, so we can only imagine how sharp and crystal clear the images will be.

Of course, as Apple educated us, the human eye cannot differentiate past the 300 pixel density mark, but considering we are talking about a piece of technology, since when has human-brain-eye limitations ever stopped anyone from making things we don’t probably need?

The news has sparked a few rumors, more prominent being that Sharp might license or even make Google’s next Nexus phone. What better way to showcase the next Android leap with a dazzling screen?
