Next-gen Samsung smartphones will have an Ultra-HD display, custom ARM CPUs and much more | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Yes, you read it correct – Ultra HD display! If you though that full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution was the best you could get, you will be proven wrong a year or two. Because the next generation of display technology will soon make its way to smartphones.


According to the information provided by Samsung, the company is working on an Ultra HD display that will bring extremely high pixel density to smartphone screens.


The number given was 560ppi (pixels per inch). Just for the sake of comparison, remember that the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a pixel density of 441 ppi.


So with this high level of pixel density, you will be able to not only shoot 4K videos on your smartphone, but will also be able to watch them there itself!


No need to switch to a 4K television, just for the sake of better clarity.

Ultra HDTV is made for TVs, not smartphones

Ultra HDTV is made for TVs, not smartphones | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

I'm puzzled as to why there would be any fuss about  ultra high definition TV (UHDTV) and mobile devices.

 

I can understand that the  underpinning technology of UHDTV (aka 4K), high efficiency video coding (HEVC),  is a great new compression standard that should help mobile players compress  better pictures into less space.

 

What I don't understand is why this is such a  big deal. Who wants to watch a better picture on a smartphone or tablet anyway?
