Phablets to get 1600x2560 screen resolutions next year
If Full HD isn't enough for you, smartphones could be launching next year with a resolution of 1600x2560.
Next year will usher in a wave of smartphones with 6in displays (aka phablets) with a higher than Full HD 1080p resolution. A resolution of 1600x2560 would be higher than the current iPad with Retina display.
The WQXGA resolution would mean a whopping pixel density of 503ppi. The current highest on the market is the HTC One with a pixel density of 469ppi.
Displays on phones have come a long way over the last couple of years, so how long until we get 4k on a mobile device?
A pixel density of more than 500ppi might sound like overkill. Does it bother you? Or would you rather have better battery life? Let us know in the comments.
