Sharp Starts Production of 5-inch 1080p Smartphones LCDs

Sharp has commenced the "full-scale" production of a new 5-inch 1080p display for smartphones.

The firm announced that production on the screens started late September. Production will pick up the pace throughout this month.

In addition to a pixel density of 443ppi, the new display will sport "a new pixel design," but information pertaining to that has yet to come into fruition. The screen will also be 1.3 times denser than Sharp's 4.3-inch 720p display.

While several firms have demoed 5-inch displays in the past, Sharp's screen will be the first to enter full production stages.

Rumors of a 5-inch HTC smartphone continues, but the only 1080p phone in existence so far is the Oppo Finder 5. There's speculation that the next Samsung Galaxy smartphone will boast a 5-inch screen, with the S3 already featuring a 4.8 display.

    wow, 5 inch 1080p? is that really necessary? kinda a waste to me. unless you're gonna constantly be looking at it with a magnifying glass i don't think you'll be able to tell the difference.
