When the Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays came out on smartphones, people though it was an overkill for such displays but now its the usual standard for flagship smartphones. Well if you thought Full HD displays were the peak of what we can get on smartphones then you are quite wrong as 2K or Quad HD displays are already here.
Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has just announced a smartphone dubbed Vivo Xplay 3S with a Quad HD or 2K display (2560 x 1440). The pixels on this display are even more than what your Retina display iPad has.
The Vivo Xplay 3S is the first smartphone that will come with a 2K display although there’s no word from Vivo about the display size but the folks at Engadget suggest that Vivo is using the LG made 2K display panel of 5.5 inches which the Korean company had unveiled recently and that makes up for 536 ppi which sounds crazy, isn’t it?
The only other spec known of the Vivo device is that it will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor. There’s no information about other specs right now but we’ll tell as you we get to know. We should always support the technology moving forward but am a little sceptic about 2K displays on smartphones if what it only does is increase the pixel density rather than bringing something else to the table. I would rather have the curved display technology move forward as Samsung’s implementation might not have impressed us but LG’s looks quite interesting. So what do you guys think of having Quad HD or 2K displays on your smartphones?
