Believe it or not, Samsung is developing a new 11k resolution for mobile display with 2250ppi, according to the news appeared on Friday. And you heard it right – 11K resolution and 2250 pixels per inch density, which Samsung going far beyond its 1440p QHD screen for Galaxy Note 5. Instead of 4K, or 5K and even the 8K which were purported recently.
The South Korean Electronics planning to make a 11K (2250ppi) mobile display, and it is very serious about, and that too collaboration with SK Government, which it is expected to invest 26.5 million dollars in the new project over the course of 5 years. many other over 13 domestic and foreign companies are also involved in the technology, which has been in development since the 1st of June.
The project is named EnDK, and a public prototype is expected to be presented at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. As per the calculations, if this display has a typical 16:9 mobile spect ratio, then the exact resolution will be 11,264 x 6336 pixels, and the screen will not go beyond 5.75-inches. With a pixel density of 2250ppi, it is up to four times higher than that of current Quad-HD screens, which would stand at up to 576ppi depending on the screen diagonal.
Samsung’s actual goal with this is to implement a “3D effect”. Details about it is however scarce now, but the way Korean outlet ETNews put it, suggests the higher-resolution screen is able to simulate the effect of a 3D screen through some kind of optical illusion.
Apparently, the Samsung’s 11K screens could reach the smartphones face cover by 2019, and of course that is not limited though. As per Samsung Display executive Chu Hye-Yong, “the 11K is merely a basis for the Korean display industry to take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this”.
