LG 5.5 Quad HDLG Display today announced that its 5.5-inch quad HD display is ready for the company’s “forthcoming flagship smartphone,” which it says will be released during the first half of the year.

LG has scheduled a global press event on May 27, which is when it is expected to reveal the G3 smartphone. The new display is an IPS LCD with 2560 x 1440 pixels, which gives it 1.8 times the resolution of today’s full HD screens. LG says the measurements give it a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch – 200 more pixels per inch than Apple’s Retina Display.

According to LG Display, the new LCD panel boasts an ultra-slim design. It measures 1.2mm thick, and has a bezel that measures 1.15mm. This will allow LG and other device makers to install the screen in devices with minimal framing around the display.

The new display will reach volume production shortly. Quad HD (2K) screens are generally accepted as the next frontier for smartphone displays, though they represent an in-between step on the way to Ultra HD (4K) displays.
