LG has just announced a new world premiere: the world’s first 5 inch Full HD LCD smartphone panel. The result is a 5 inch smartphone with 440 ppi pixel density, that beats the 330 ppi Retina Display by a mile. Will it make it to the next Galaxy Note rival?

The technology behind this contraption is the Advanced High Performance In Plane Switching (AH IPS), that allows wider viewing angles, better brightness and gives smartphone viewers a similar experience to the one of watching HDTVs and HD computer monitors. The new panel has a 16:9 aspect ratio, it’s a widescreen affair and it’s 2.2 times denser in pixels than previous 4.5 inch HD panels. The AH IPS tech used on the screen makes individual pixels impossible to pick up with the naked eye.

This gives it the ability of precise color reproduction and believe it or not this solution is also energy efficient. The screen uses up less battery power than other displays in the same category. This new panel will be released in the second half of the year and I wonder if there’s a Full HD Super AMOLED in the making to beat it and hit the next Galaxy Note.
