LG G3

Stuff: The LG G3 will sport a 5.5-inch LCD with a pixel format of 2560×1440 or in display industry jargon Quad HD or QHD, for a resolution of 534 ppi. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 with 1920×1080 pixels, if true, will look outdated as soon as it comes out.

Some might wonder what the point of a 534 ppi display is if we can’t even see the difference. Well, there is research out there that suggests a much higher threshold: roughly 600 ppi. If the LG G3 comes with a great camera and the battery lasts for a day, I will be tempted.

LG sent invitations — set in what looks like dark brushed aluminum with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “To be simple is to be Great” — for a May 27 (San Francisco, New York, London) and May 28 (Seoul, Singapore, Instanbul) event.
