Samsung Is Working On A Mind Blowing 11K Smartphone Display

Ask a purist (or even better, Apple) and and the answer you’ll get is that a 1080p display is more than enough for a smartphone. However, it seems that for Samsung even 4K just isn’t enough, which is why it is teaming up with 13 companies and the South Korean govt. to make a mind-blending, stomach-turning 11K display.

The Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning has already decided to invest $26.5 million into this new moonshot. The display will have a stunning 2250 ppi pixel density. (For the record, the Galaxy S6 stands at ‘just’ 577 ppi.) We hardly think that the consortium will stop there.

More importantly, it can create an illusion of a 3D display, without the need of special glasses, which is quite understandable. Why? “Because 11K is able to show screen colors in detail.”

It is someone’s guess how this particular 3D will sit well with general public, because as history tells with Nintendo, Amazon and various 3D-smartphones, 3D displays can actually be quite troublesome. There is quite a bit of time for nixing out these flaws, though. The prototypes will likely reach completion by 2018, for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Right now, the most you can get in a smartphone is a quad-HD (2K) screen and even in televisions, things max out at 8K however, at this pace you never know what will happen next. While most will feel that this is a mere overkill mainly for number-crunching, you can’t deny that it will be coming anyway.

    They should rather be working on battery as it sucks right now specially in their high end flagships.

    • Zawyar Ur Rehman

      Agree

    • Nauman Shafique

      it is WIP, in 2016, most probably battery capacity will be double in the same size :) also by samsung

      • Shahzaib Rehman

        But still their main focus is crunching numbers of pixels in an already perfect display. We need more battery even double is also not enough as currently highest end smartphone’s on screen time is 3 to to 5 hours so even double the capacity will still not be good enough.

        11K display with thousands of Pixels Per inch or some amazing new battery that can run your Galaxy S6 (which already has a super bright eye sharp display) for 24hours consistently. What would you like? ;)

      • Sulaiman Lalani

        when they double the battery size ,probably new technology will rise & will give the same timings as same as now we are getting 1 or 1/2 day coz the new tech display will be more hungry & will suck it up all

    • Muhammad Aamir

      It has only one solution, buy multiple batteries right now.

      • Shahzaib Rehman

        Oh don’t worry they have taken good care of this solution as well :D
        Now Samsung Galaxy S6 don’t have a removable battery.

        • Muhammad Aamir

          hahhahh!!! Good then :D

    The 11k display, the 32GB AMD graphics card, Zero-Day vulnerability, the pluto and Ramzan have made the month of July an amazing month year of the decade.

    why time is set as 9:40 on Samsung & 9:41 on I phones handsets? what is the secret behind 9:40 & 9:41?

  • aiamkesz

    Maybe, she wants to takeover ‘Xperia Z5 Premium’ with 4K display and amazingly with two-day battery life! :p
