LG Display has introduced a 5 inch full high definition LCD panel for smartphones, which the company claims provides the same quality as on TVs and monitors.

LG Display’s panel is based on the company’s AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology that enables 440ppi (pixels per inch) and 1920x1080 resolution for full HDTV quality on a smartphone.

The panel has a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and is 0.5 inches larger, 2.2 times denser in pixels, and 1.3 times more advanced in ppi than the preceding 4.5 inch panel at 329ppi and 1280x720.

AH-IPS’ technology provides high-density displays where the naked eye is unable to distinguish between individual pixels and its bright light transmission and low power consumption is ideal for use in outdoor settings, according to the company.

This latest HD LCD panel is expected to be released during the second half of this year.
