Japanese giant Sharp announced that it’s starting mass-production of 5 inch smartphone displays with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) this month.
At 443 PPI, the new displays have the highest pixel density ever achieved on a smartphone screen. The highest current density is around 340 PPI (Sony Xperia V, Xperia S, and HTC Rezound have it).
China-based Oppo has already confirmed that it’s getting ready to launch an Android smartphone with a 5 inch 1080p display. HTC may be also among the first to introduce such a handset – possibly called HTC One X 5, or Google Nexus 5. I assume both devices will use Sharp-made screens. We’ll bring more on this as soon as new info emerges.
