If 720p phones or “Retina” displays just aren’t good enough for you, LG Display has you covered. The display manufacturing branch of LG is set to produce a 1080p 5″ panel for mobile devices by the second half of 2012. For those of you who value pixel density over resolution and size, that’s 440ppi – a statistic that puts the iPhone 4/4S’s 330ppi “Retina” display and the HTC Rezound/Vigor’s 342ppi 720p display to shame.
The panel will also debut LG’s AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology, which promises to improve on IPS’s traditionally subpar response time and increase brightness efficiency.

Pixel Qi display technology has been demonstrated and talked about for years, but it has yet to make it to the market in any meaningful capacity. While this trend doesn’t look to be changing in the short-term, the technology continues to mature, and if Pixel Qi is to be believed, it is more than on par with the current best screens on the market.
The next generation Pixel Qi display is said to offer the same 2048×1536 display on the new iPad, and the company goes on to say that the technology can “match or exceed the image quality of the screen in the iPad 3.” All of this is said to be possible while drawing up to 100 times less power than the new iPad 8Watt power draw.
Pixel Qi says it is now in the process of finalizing partners for use of this next generation technology. The company also included a graph that pits the power use of its E-Ink-esque technology against that of traditional displays.
