LG Reportedly Confirms Next Product Will Feature 2560 x 1440 Display Resolution

After a picture began circulating the web this weekend, featuring the first reported shot of the upcoming LG G3, the company has now confirmed to UberGizmo that its next device will indeed sport a 2560 x 1440 display. 

In the photo, which only shows a minor portion of the reported G3, a benchmark is on the screen, showing off bits of information about the device. According to the AnTuTu benchmark, the device features a Qualcomm processor, Adreno 330 GPU, and a 2560 x 1440 resolution (640dpi).

No exact mentions of the display’s size can be seen, however, previous reports claim the display is 5.5″ in size.

While LG has yet to send out a press release, confirming the addition of a UHD display on any upcoming device, we must be getting pretty close to an announcement.

Are you ready for 2K displays?

    I have a hard time telling the difference between the 1280×768 display on the Nexus 4 and the 1080p on the Nexus 5 at normal viewing distances. For non phablets, I’d rather save money and power with a 720p display. However, specs all tend to go together, so if I want the latest SoC it means I’m also getting a pointlessly high resolution.

  • GokhanE

    1920 x 1080 FHD is already a “2k display”. Why do you need any more pixels on a display smaller than 7 in, as no one’s eyes can tell the difference? I bet the picture quality will suffer.

  • OpenMitko

    I can’t believe it’s not Snapdragon 805, what a shame 🙁

  • Alexander Munnerlyn

    Why does it have Adreno 330?

  • supremekizzle

    I bet that all these butthurt samboys wouldn’t be complaining about QHD if the GS5 would have shipped with it as rumored. You jelly bruh?

  • Dat Nguyen

    Pointless. Once your eye can’t tell anymore at the cost of battery life and other sacrifices… pointless. Give me a 1280×800 on anything 4 or below and a 1920 on anything 7 or below and I’m good forever. Rather have response and battery life improvements.

    • skinja99

      Go buy an apple product.
      It never ceases to me amaze me how people complain about advances in products.
      Did you expect that for the rest of human existence, we would be content at 1080 screens?

      • TylerCameron

        This isn’t an advance. An advance has an advantage. Name an advantage of all those extra pixels on a sub-10″ device. Ho ahead.

        • bogy25

          I get what you are saying about the battery drain and eye/brain interpretation but if LG doesn’t know this I would be very surprised. They are probably working on a solution for the battery. I have to agree with skinja99 – we need to lead the way – you know apple is going to release a new iphone with a 4.5″ screen and claim it is a first. So, having an android device with the FIRST 2k screen is fine with me. The key word here is FIRST. We need to lead the way and innovate – that is what brought so many users to apple – that is why so many have now recently left apple and come to Android.

  • Jason Melling

    A lot of whinging going on about this, nobody is forcing you to buy it. If you don’t like it then don’t buy it, very simple.

  • paul_cus

    LG is going to snap with this phone.

  • CaptM

    There’s really only 3 things that all of your “Critics/Haters” out there can really do about it then.
    1. Don’t buy it.
    2. Design and build your own phone to the exact specs that you want (probably will need to start your own company and learn how to mass produce).
    3. Just keep Bitchin and Moanin.

  • joejoe5709

    Alright LG. I’m ready. Bring it.

  • OF

    Damn. An Adreno 330 means that it’s an 801 cpu at best. Was hoping for the 805.

    • joejoe5709

      Was thinking the same thing. I’m hoping it’s an 805, but realistically an 801.

  • Jacob Mustin

    Did i miss something? I thought 1080 was technically 2k…… 2 thousand pixels across the long side…… 1920

  • pat kerby

    I hope it’s at least the size of the Note 3, I am so tired of these small phones. Like the HTC One I have now! U don’t think that the size of ur cell matters that much but ur wrong! I had a HTC Droid DNA Pryor to this HTC One I have now. When u have big hands the big cells make a huge difference! Even though it’s not that much of a difference. It’s a big difference! Now with that said, I would like to see if we can have a voice in bringing a change in these devices. Can we get a cell with a size about 5.7-6″ even and have a flip open Keyboard? I think the perfect example is the LG Envy Touch, this was my favorite cell . The 2 speakers on the inside so u could flip it open and turn on the music, or watch a movie! For a small device it had exceptionally good sound……..

    • TylerCameron

      The EnV You h was a neat phone, and is one of the few feature phones to have a good screen. 3″ 800×480. Such pixel density!

  • Aooga

    Unless they put a 4000+ mAh battery in this thing, I don’t know what the point of this screen is. WHO CARES??

  • SungJi Yoon

    More is BETTER!!!

  • callumshell1

    2K isn’t UHD ahhhhhhghghghh

    • Jacob Mustin

      Thats what im saying! Nor is this resolution 2k…. Its like 2.5k… 2k is 1080p

  • anon

    So ready to bail on verizon…. unless maybe the LG G3 can get a hacked bootloader!

  • Alan

    So will the be out in the Fall like the previous 2 LG G phones? If so, too bad. I’m getting a new phone at the end of Spring.

    • potatos

      Ya, this is my main reason for skipping on the G3 even before it’s released. I’ve already decided to get a new phone this Summer to replace my 2 year old one. I just can’t wait any longer.

  • ohdoctor

    With a little simple math you can see that the specs listed in the image above do not equate to a 5.5″ screen.

    640 dpi with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 comes out to a screen size of just under 4.6 inches.

    • MH

      Perhaps they’re leaving out the space taken by OSK.

      • hkklife

        That would account for only .3″ inches or so at most my prediction is that the G3 will come in a bit below the first G Pro…maybe 5.4″ or so.

  • chris125

    Only snap 800/801? What a let down if true. Everything else is super high end then using a year old chip when the s805 will be readily available??

    • hkklife

      805 won’t be widely available until Q3, IIRC.

  • chris125

    Eh it’s still lg with the weird button placement and ugly UI

  • Guest

    I love how people are knocking the G3 for a 2K screen and battery life. please tell me where you see this battery issue? the G2 did great on battery life and I know LG wont backtrack with battery esp on a flagship device. Lets untwist your panties and wait until we know more.

    • You’re criticizing people for discussing the as of yet unknown battery life, and then you say “I know LG won’t backtrack with battery esp on a flagship device.” Maybe they’ll screw up and make a phone with crap battery. Maybe they’ll be awesome and develop one with just as much battery life as the G2. Maybe it’ll be somewhere in-between. You don’t know, the DL writers don’t know and neither do I, so how about we all just wait and see.

  • Disqus_n00b

    When us nerds start saying it doesn’t matter, you know it’s an irrelevant improvement

  • duke69111

    I hope the g3 comes with a 3500 or 4000 mah battery.

  • Arty McBert

    >>2560×1440 display
    Enjoy that terrible battery life. I’m tired of OEMs focusing so much on hardware feats just for the sake of bragging rights when they have little to no impact on practicality. Start focusing on software for once outside of bloatware.

    • Ryan

      If it’s anything like the g2 battery or better it will be just fine.

    • chris125

      Well from 720p-1080p the battery life actually increased. Wait to see it before determining it will be worse than before

    • Jay Ochs

      this cynical argument is hilarious. people said the same bs when we went to 1080p from 720p, and it wasn’t a big issue. with these processors becoming more power efficient, it won’t have a problem, especially when LG has really nailed great battery life in the G2.

      • TylerCameron

        Except you CAN see the difference in pixel density on, say, the HTC One and Nexus 4. Which have the same size screens.
        But on my one, I CAN’T see the pixels. No matter what. Even when I put my eyes right up to the screen. To an increase in pixel density is pointless if we ALREADY can’t see the pixels. Anything beyond 400ppi is a waste.

    • Charles Walker

      I agree, but the masses still seem to be hung up on specs. Fortunately we still have the Moto X and its successor which is due later this summer.

  • Rob

    Really? No one posted this yet?

  • jwildman16

    Really hope this comes out before I leave the country at the end of June. Can’t really spend time away from the charger with a GNex.

  • stabone

    I really wish they would change that dice looking icon for the app drawer.

  • ttt

    i guess adreno 330 confirms sd800 and not 801

    • SeanPlunk

      The S800 and S801 both have the Adreno 330. The S805 has the Adreno 420. It looks like it’s coming with an S801 based on leaks so far.

      • thecokedragon

        Leaks so far actually help G3 look like it’s harnessing a mere 800 but I could be wrong.

    • Stephen Nault

      Wikileaks says it will be the 800, but I find that hard to believe. My wild guess: prototypes have the 800 but will be upgraded to the 801 for full production.

  • Shawn John

    Ridiculous, the size of the device will not allow you to notice the difference in resolution.

    • skinja99

      Then don’t buy it.
      Don’t complain about options.
      People that complain about options sound like they want to only have limited options.
      Did people really think that for the rest of human civilization that handheld devices will only have 1080 screens.
      If nothing else, having higher res screens will drive competition for other aspects of devices in order to compete with higher resolution screens.

      • Shawn John

        This is a discussion board we discuss all things Android, nobody is complaining, I merely stated facts not opinion. Your the type to be all hype about a 128B phone when there are no 128B OS or apps, “Just to have options”…That’s ignorant. The dumbing down of consumers is in full effect. People like you is the reason companies release 3 flagship phones in a year with options you can’t even utilize.

  • bogy25

    My next phone

  • BrandonWhite116

    This is a bad idea. It takes more effort for the phone to render views on higher resolution screens, a super high resolution screen will result in a slower phone. Custom ListViews that use images and drawings will not scroll smoothly. I work on an app that uses complex custom listviews and there is a direct relationship between the resolution of the screen and how fast the listviews can be scrolled. On top of this you won’t be able to tell the difference between this and a standard high resolution screen.

    • Cowboydroid

      The GPU is not a stagnant component.

    • skinja99

      So for the rest of time, humans having handheld devices are just supposed to be content with 1080 screens?
      Stop complaining that you have options. Go buy an apple product and you can have people decide what is right for you.

      • TylerCameron

        Tell me about the benefits of all these extra pixels then.
        Are you able to notice a visual improvement? No…
        Will you be able to fit more on the screen? No…
        Will it have an affect on performance? Yes, a negative one.
        These are the facts.

        • Jon

          I can only imagine that 4K videos, that these phones can now shoot in, will look amazing.

  • Steve B

    640 dpi haha

  • Alex Boro

    NO! Why does the G3 have to be a phablet!?

    • Carlos Lopez

      Pretty much sealed the deal for me getting another phone

    • The Narrator
      • Ryan

        G2 is far from a phablet. IMO it is the perfect screen size and I don’t like that the G3 is getting bigger.

    • Alan

      If that resolution and DPI is correct then the screen is 4.5894″ on the diagonal.

    • Jason Melling

      5.5″ is not a phablet.

      • TylerCameron

        So the Note II isn’t a phablet?

    • 4g63mark

      I wouldn’t believe the 5.5 inch rumor. The G Pro is the phablet

  • bobbyp

    I don’t need it but I want it!

  • Milische

    This is the only thing that is making me regret my M8 purchase. Even though there is no real use for a 2K display, the tech geek inside me wants it badly.

    • The Narrator

      3gb ram, way bigger battery, SD 805 most likely, etc.

      • thecokedragon


    • John Davids

      Why regret? You make it sound like this leaked phone is available today. You got the M8 in March/April 2014. It very well could be until holidays 2014 that this phone comes out. Thats over 6 months later and in the world of phone tech, it may as well be 5 years.

  • Xavier_NYC

    If it comes with a SD805 instead of the SD800 thats been floating around.. LG will officially have done this to Samsung: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FjaMCrDtiU

    • thecokedragon

      Well that’s too bad, because this’ll be sporting an 801 (which model specifically, I’m not sure, but there’s no 801 better than what’s in the GS5). The proof is in the pic attached to this article: the GPU is an Adreno 330, while anything 805 or higher has at least a 418 (418 for 808, 420 for 805, and 430 for 810). Unless they change the specs, we’re not dealing with anything significantly better than the GS5 under the hood, especially with that power-guzzling 2K display.

      • TylerCameron

        Why theis Qualcomm screwing us by doing bi-yearly updates to their SoC’s???

      • Xavier_NYC

        you do realize there’s a thing called test devices right? Since you’re a Samsung fan you remember the Note 3 when the pics leaked and it literally looked like a rectangle then BAM, completely different looking device. Lets wait for the official announcement.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Specs are Specs….but at this point it’s all about the UI/UX/Battery Life.

    • The Narrator

      and the G2 last’s me all day + some. So I am not worried.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Battery Life has come a long way, but as for the Over the top Specs… I don’t care any more. As long as it’s at least 1080p if it’s more that’s fine too. But at this point the only thing really separating OEMS are UI/UX/Battery

      • MiMo1986s

        also G Pro i don’t have any problems i start to trust LG more

    • Azn_Android

      Totally agree. Really hating the trend toward anorexic devices and ridiculously spec’ed screens and cameras that are nothing more than marketing numbers.

  • reyalP

    Why would you need such a high resolution on a 5″ to 6″ screen?

    • Jeff

      Because some people like to have the ‘best’ even when there may be no actual practical use for it.

      • reyalP

        And those same people will be bitching about battery life when the can’t make it through the day!

        • The Narrator

          Nope. 3000mAh and it’s perfect.

        • The LG G2 already has a 3,000mAh battery, I can only imagine this will be even better.

      • The Narrator

        Nothing wrong with that at all.

        • Brandon

          If people want to do it, go ahead, it’s a waste of money though.

      • supremekizzle
    • K

      There are people out there that claim to see pixels on a 5″ 1080p device. They must be superhuman because I can’t notice that sh!t

      • K

        *Individual pixels that is for the smartasses out there 🙂

      • Noble Star

        True, if i really focus hard i can see the pixel arrangement of the 1080p display but not the pixel itself.

      • Jay Ochs

        ever have a dead pixel on a 1080p device? my LG G2 has 2, and I can see them plain as day. My Droid DNA has 1 stuck pixel, and I can see it quite easily.

        i have 20/20 vision, and i do admit they’re small, but the problem is that once you see them, you can never un-see them lol

    • People said the same thing about 1080p when it first came out, and yes, there were phones then that were at the 5″ range like the Note 2 and others.

      • Alan

        I still say the same thing with 1080p.

    • Alan

      The people who want them are the same people who want the “moar gibis” too.
