LG has posted a press release this evening announcing new 5.5 inch QHD panels that will likely appear in their flagship G4 smartphone to be unveiled April 28 at simultaneous worldwide events. The new panels carry the same 1440×2560 resolution (538 PPI) that appeared in the LG G3 last year, but the company cites many improvements. The press release claims that the new panels have a 120% color gamut, allowing more accurate colors on the display. LG also says they have implemented Advanced In-cell Touch technology to make the panel more sensitive to touch, “The new panel also adopted Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT) technology which offers excellent touch sensitivity so that it can respond to touch commands even with water drops on the screen.” This is particularly useful for those of us that use our Android phone in the gym, I’ve been frustrated many times by losing touch capability on a screen covered in sweat. Other improvements include a higher contrast ratio and higher brightness compared to “standard QHD panels.”
The press release also mentions that these panels are set to appear in an upcoming flagship. Of course the G4 is not actually mentioned by name, but what else could it be? If these panels end up in the G4 it seems all of these improvements will allow LG to improve on the already stellar screen on the G3. Keep it locked here to HOA as we continue to bring you breaking news on LG’s upcoming flagship, including the unveiling on April 28. Check out the press release below.
