It is no secret that the pixel density in the Retina, which are equipped with the flagship iPhone 7 is 326 ppi. Actually, the title of the standard (“Retina”) comes from the fact that the human eye can’t discern individual dots on the screen and everything it shows, very clearly. During the exhibition, Ceatech 2016 Sharp new display which is characterized by a record density of pixels per inch – higher than 1000 dpi.
In 2010 Apple released the iPhone 4 with Retina display, pixel density per inch which was 326 ppi. Steve jobs said that the human eye can’t discern individual pixels when value is over 300 ppi. However, technology does not stand still, and manufacturers release new and improved LCD panel.
Sharp presents a sample screen is made with a proprietary technology IGZO and has a diagonal of 2.87 inches, offering a resolution of 2160 x 1920 pixels for each eye or 3840 x 2160 pixels for both eyes of the user. The pixel density is a record 1008 ppi. In other words, even at multiple magnifications, no hint of a pixel will not find.
Displays modern flagship smartphones, the majority are characterized by a half pixel density, which while extremely difficult to see with the naked eye. Already released on the market of virtual reality helmets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive got the panels, which are characterized by a density of 456 and 447 ppi respectively. Previously, Dr. Wu from the company LG had previously said that 1 000 ppi is a prerequisite for virtual reality that the user saw the picture quality.
And what is the resolution for the screen of a smartphone is the best, what do you think?
