ZTE Could Be Working On A New Phone With 4K Display

by Joe 97 views18

Its been a while since 2K screens started appearing on flagship devices. Given the immense competition and development in the smartphone market, its about time we see an upgrade in the display resolution (although it may not be needed). Day by day, 4K TVs are gaining popularity and it looks like 4K display smartphones could arrive in the market pretty soon.

We have already seen the  5.5-inch 4K (2160 x 3840 pixel resolution) display from Sharp, translating in a whopping 806 ppi. Now, Chinese media reports that ZTE is planning to use a similar 4K display on its new ZTE Star 3 flagship. In addition to this super resolution display, their source reveals that the TFT Panel will use a special crystal structure which will reduce power consumption as well as improve the strength of the display.

To be honest, its too early to be making conclusions based on such little information. So, take this news with a pinch of salt. We will keep you guys updated if something more conclusive comes up in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned.

  • I don’t think so, for me, 1080p is enough.

    • Joe

      I completely agree!

    • Muhammad Yasir

      whats the advantage of increasing res :/ ?

      • Paul Sleight

        Who knows where the technology will lead? First you have to get a working product developed, we started off with say vga resolution screens which seemed pretty good years ago. Now we have screens that you cannot see the pixels even with a magnifying glass. And the rate of development is increasing, so there’ll be 8k screens at some point soon. Not because they are necessarily better to look at, but because they will have spare capacity to develop other ideas. 3d hologram images for example. I’ve no idea what the future holds, but we need the technology to achieve it

          thanks!
          u always da man !

          thats some bright insight.
          u an engineer/scientist ?

          • Paul Sleight

            Ha! No such luck, just interested…
            Maybe OCD! 😱

        • Joe

          You are right, but I think we have come to a point where its no use increasing the display resolution. 1080p on a 5.5-inch display is so good, that 2K doesn’t make much of a difference (other than consuming a lot of battery).
          Rather than that, I think companies should focus on power efficiency of the panel as well as other aspects such as making the phone bezelless. Like u said, there are lots more to explore like display which may show 3D hologram images.
          Obsessing with increasing resolution is not a good idea according to me especially for a 5.5-inch panel.

          • Paul Sleight

            That’s my point really, we’ve found that making high resolution screens draws too much power to be practical, so that drives the research to develop more efficient screens, and also more efficient batteries and processors. Each in turn helps to push another aspect of design forward. Then someone thinks of another way of doing a thing. Look at batteries… By developing different chemical compositions we’ve got batteries the size of two or three credit cards more efficient than an early one the size of a brick! And it’s possible that future phones won’t have a battery at all. But that’s just speculation. Never be satisfied with the status quo, always try to be better!

      Phone itself 1080/FHD
      External max 2260/UHD

    The display is not everything, i would ask about the cpu/gpu, then overheating issues, that i would start to play, but after looking at xperia z3+ and htc m9 I am pessimistic that it will be adopted any time soon, maybe samsung if it will be able to reduce the 10 nanometers technologies

  • Muhammad Yasir

    hehe…

    • Paul Sleight

      … And now there’s news of a bi-directional micro oled screen with… 1667 pixels per inch! Maybe good for ultra HD contact lenses, that’d be a development for Google Glass!

      • Muhammad Yasir

        bi-wat ?! means u can see it both sides ??

        • Paul Sleight

          Good question! That may be it, I think it’s intended for scientific research purposes, but who knows? I’ll be reading a bit more when I have the time 😟

        • Paul Sleight

          Btw… TinyDeal have just confirmed that my oukitel u8 is finally on its way!
          Yowzers! Only 10 days to go…

          • Muhammad Yasir

            goodluck 🙂 !

          • Paul Sleight

            U8 is in da house…er…….car! ;-D
            Looking good!

        • Paul Sleight

          Bidirectional apparently means the screen has LEDs to emit a picture (red,blue, green, and also white, per pixel, arranged around a light sensitive diode so that the screen becomes a camera sensor. That’s pretty cool and powerful stuff.
