Up till now we had only come to know a couple of Chinese phones which bypassed the 1080p resolution for their displays and these included the Oppo Find 7 and the Vivo Xplay 3S. And when these came out, we were surely in awe with this unique spec but it is becoming mainstream gradually. The new G2 successor by LG has announced that the phone is going to feature a "Quad HD" resolution which will have four times as many pixels as 720p which means it is going to top at 2,560 x 1,440.
If we look at the earlier leaks then we can recall that this new successor G3 will sport a 5.5-inch display which indicates towards a stronger density of around 530 ppi which is not so much far from what you get from a glossy printed magazine. When we think of what exactly is the point here then there is a fine line between what the Chinese phone makers intended and what this phone is planning to achieve. With the Chinese phones, it was all about the rendering of the complex character set which took its benefits from the extra details but when it comes to the global handsets, we cant really be sure. Onscreen pictures will also most likely get a boost and that too to such an extent that they will almost look analog. If LG is following the same G2 schedule for its G3, then we might expect the phone to launch in the summer, with availability by the fall.
