LG just released some information about the display that will be on the flagship G4. The 5.5″ QHD (1,440×2,560) LCD will have 538 pixels per inch and have an amazing 120% colour gamut. LG achieves this feat by using a blue LED with red and green phosphors instead of yellow like other LCDs have.
The display no doubt is being touted as one of the G4’s best features, and accurate colours isn’t the only thing the display improved on. LG says that it offers a 50% higher contrast ratio than competing QHD LCD panels, and also says that it is 30% brighter without using extra energy.
The new displays will have darker blacks and sharper images thanks to a tech that involves UV light being used when making the panels. It says that it allows the liquid crystals to align evenly, preventing light leakage. Another new tech called Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT) makes the screen very sensitive and claims that it can respond to touch commands even when wet. Many are understandably eagerly awaiting the April 24th unveiling of the G4 and thankfully we now know a little more about the device.
