South Korea’s smartphone manufacturer Samsung is developping something called ‘super resolution’ that will sport mind boggling 11k resolution. HD displays and 4k displays will soon be the talks of past. Samsung together with 13 other companies has signed a $26.5 million in the project with South Korean government to produce the display within five years of time period.
According to IBNLIVE this super-resolution display would measure 5.74 inches diagonally with a resolution of 11,264 X 6,336. It further added, way behind the purported 11K display, full HD offers a 1080p resolution while a quad HD offers 1440p resolution. Although 4K displays, which offers 806ppi density, are likely to be unveiled by 2016, the question about their inclusion in smartphones still remains.
Samsung Display Base Technology Department executive director Chu Hye Yong says “Although some might think that 11K as ‘over specification’ that consumers do not need, this can work as a basis for Korean display industry to take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this,” Mashable reports.
Besides it will consume high power to support the resolution. Hence it is equally important to develop energy efficient devices and high end batteries with better backup.
