Comparison of High Definition smartphones displays

      Which is the main reason for you to buy a new smartphone? More and more people want a device whose screen is big enough to visualize all the content clearly, so new mobiles have screens up to 6.0 inches. That’s why a new generation of smartphones with a 1440p full high definitionhas arrived. The resolution of mobiles have been developed and improved until getting the most optimal sharpness for images. Here is a list with all the current resolutions in smartphones:

      480p resolution

      It is the short name for a video mode category. 480 means 480 horizontal lines of screen resolution, and letter p means the progressive scanning. Its resolution is 640×480 pixels= 307.200 pixels (0.3 megapixels).

      An example of mobiles having this resolution is:
      –  LG L60i dual (released in October, 2014).
      –  Alcatel One Touch (released in August, 2014).
      –  Huawei Ascend Y520 (released in October, 2014).
      –  Acer Liquid Z200 (released in September, 2014)

       

      720p resolution

      720p is the short name for one of the categories of video mode. 720 means 720 horizontal lines of screen resolution, and letter p means the progressive scanning. Its resolution is 1280×720 pixels = 921.600 pixels (0.9 megapixels).

      An example of mobiles having this resolution is:
      –  Samsung Galaxy S3 (released in May, 2012).
      –  Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (released in October, 2012).
      –  Sony Xperia SP (released in October, 2012).
      –  HTC One mini (released in July, 2013).

      1080p and 1080i resolutions

      1080p is an alternative name for the maximum resolution used in the high definition Video. 1080 means 1080 horizontal lines (the vertical resolution), but p means progressive scan and non-interlaced image. This terms normally supposes a relation of a 16:00 widescreen aspect, implying a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels = 2.073.600 pixels (2 megapixels).

      1080i is the short name for a video mode category. 1080 means 1080 horizontal lines (the vertical resolution), but i means non-progressive scan and interlaced image. This terms normally supposes a relation of a 16:9 widescreen aspect, implying a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels = 2.073.600 pixels (more than real 1.036.800 pixels, referred to 1080i).

      The difference between 1080p and 1080i is that each photogram with p format is projected by all the lines progressively, so a better visualization is obtained, although it is only perceptible for the most sensitive view; with the i format, each photogram is projected by the half of the lines, odd or even alternatively, or in a interlaced way.

      An example of mobiles having this resolution is:
      –  Huawei Ascend P7 (released in June, 2014).
      –  HTC Butterly 2 (released in September, 2014).
      –  Samsung Galaxy S5 (released in March, 2014).
      –  Sony Xperia Z2 (released in April, 2014).

       

      1440p resolution

      1440p is the name used to refer to the 2560×1440 resolution in high definition digital video. 1440 is the image vertical resolution, indicating 1440 pixels in the vertical axis; letter p means the progressive scanning. The horizontal resolution is omitted since the standard format of high definition is 16:9. The quantity of pixels in the 1440p resolution is 3.686.400.

      An example of mobiles having this resolution is:
      –  Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (released in October, 2014).
      –  Nexus 6 (released in November, 2014).

      The world’s narrowest full-HD display panel by LG

      The Korean company has announced the manufacture of a new screen panel, a 5.3-inch Full HD LCD panel with a bezel of only 0,7mm, being the narrowest bezels in the world.

      LG used two processes, the Neo Edge module processing technology and the world’s first “Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT)” technology to create bezels which are narrower than the thickness of a credit card (which is 0.8mm). With the Neo Edge technology, an adhesive is used. instead of a double-sided tape to attach the area around the circuit panel.  This adhesive reduces a leakage of light and proportionates resistance to water and dust. In addition, corrosion around the bezel’s panel is also avoided.

      The AIT technology also helps to reduce the size of the bezel, since the touch panel is integrated into the LCD module. Using this technology, another one is no need, so it is profitable for LG.
