Samsung allegedly working on 11K display with 2250 ppi
Today's high-end smartpone displays should be enough for anyone, but it seems things are different and Samsung aims much higher. The new display they seem to be working on promises a pixel density that is almost four times higher than that offered by the 5.1-inch display of the company's Galaxy S6 flagship.
According to Samsung Display Base Technology Department Executive Director Chu Hye Yong, the company has no less than 13 partners that help with the development of this super-resolution screen that promises to become the world's first 11K display. The upcoming hardware component will offer a pixel density of 2250 ppi while the Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy S6 has 577 ppi.
Samsung and its partners also got a 26.5 million USD investment from the South Korean government, but the money will be released in stages during the next 5 years. The first working prototype of the 11K display for handsets might be unveiled just in time for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but this remains to be seen.
