LG says 5.5-inch QHD screen will be used in upcoming ‘flagship smartphone’


LG is known for trickling out details of its new high-end smartphones in the weeks leading up to their debut, and the G3 is no different.

LG Display tonight announced that its 5.5-inch Quad HD AH-IPD LCD screen has been certified by NEMKO, a Norwegian organization that tests and certifies electrical products. The display has a resolution of 2560×1440, a 1.2mm thickness and a 1.15mm bezel.

So when might you actually see this high-res and crazy thin panel on a smartphone in your pocket? LG says that the display will hit mass production “shortly” and that it’ll be formally unveiled in “the forthcoming LG’s flagship smartphone” that’ll launch in the first half of 2014.

While LG doesn’t directly come out and say that this panel will be used in the G3, all of the clues point to that being the case. Not only has the rumor mill pegged the G3 as packing a 5.5-inch QHD screen, but LG has previously confirmed that it’s working on a device known as the “LG G3” that will launch in the second quarter.

Because it’s a flagship device from a major smartphone manufacturer, the LG G3 will like garner quite a bit of attention no matter its specs. If it does indeed arrive with a 5.5-inch QHD display, though, the G3 will instantly jump to the top of many must have lists.

Does the news that the G3 will likely pack a 5.5-inch QHD display get you excited for LG’s May 27 event?
