Sharp LogoSharp has started “full scale” production of a new 5 inch 1080p HD (1920 x 1080) smartphone display that sports a whopping 443ppi – higher than anything else on the market (LG’s 440ppi LCD is the closest). Sharp started manufacturing the “LCD panel type 5” last month but Sharp said they are ramping up production through October (which means someone is looking to build a device using the display). The new display features a “new pixel design”, the details of which have yet to be released. Thus far only the Oppo Finder 5 phone has been announced to incorporate the display but there are rumors of a 5 in HTC smartphone in the pipeline.
