Samsung and LG Smartphones to Not Have 4K Displays in 2016

Browse This Page

There have been a lot of talk around whether Samsung and LG are planning to embrace Ultra HD (4K) panels for its smartphones in 2016. Latest reports from iNEWS has stated that Samsung in particular will stick with QHD (2560 by 1440) panels due to lack of 4K content in the market. Another report suggests that LG is pulling out too.

Another reason behind this decision is perhaps the overheating issues and power efficiency with 4K panels from LG Display and Samsung Display. Samsung would have benefited from 4K displays for its smartphone as would have worked well its Gear VR headset. However, the population for Gear VR users is still mighty low as of now, which is why Samsung deemed it unnecessary.

Galaxy S6 Edge + plus iGyaan 27

What these companies are planning to do instead is try to improve on its existing displays in power draw and outdoor visibility, especially the 1440p panels that are expected in next year’s flagships. Currently, Sony is the only phone manufacturer with 4K display resolution in the market.

4k is useless as human eye cant judge the difference in qhd n 4k display

Even though am a spec fanatic, anything above 1440p on a 6 inch smartphone is just waste of processing/battery power.which can be utilised in other area's where this power will actually matter rather than just a 4k spec written on the box .

Very nice decision.. 2k is more than enough for humans... Even 1080p is crisp ... They should actually use 1080p panels to improve battery and performance..

Great decision 4k on smartphones is ridiculously stupid sory Sony but no one wants to compete with your idiotic 4k display because the consumers find it useless and can't tell the difference between 4k and quad HD.
