In tech world time flies at a much faster pace. What is innovative and awe-inspiring today, within month becomes a standard feature calling for upgrades and improvements. Remember the day when the first smartphone with a 1080p HD display was launched? Now such a screen is a must-have for every high-end phone and no longer makes your heart beat faster. It means that it is time for upgrade in this aspect to keep the excitement at a reasonably high level. Responsible for this will be Chinese smartphone maker Vivo with its Xplay 3S.
Vivo Xplay 3S Quad HD smartphone
The company announced its next flagship smartphone, the Vivo Xplay 3S, and it appears that the device will come with a Quad HD or 2K display offering a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. We are not sure about exact dimensions of the screen, but in August LG announced a 5.5-inch panel with the same resolution, which makes it a likely size. If so, pixel density will work out to a stunning 538 ppi.
The Xplay 3S phone will be released probably before the end of this year. Other revealed specs include a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800AB processor and 4G TDD-LTE/FDD-LTE support for all 3 Chinese carriers.
Is that 2K screen too much? Maybe. Or maybe not. Some claim that the difference between 2,560 x 1,440 and 1920 x 1080 display will be too subtle to notice. The same was said right after 1080p displays were introduced but the difference in quality compared to 720p displays is too obvious to be dismissed.
At the moment it is pointless to discuss the benefits flaws of 2K displays since the actual device is not available for test. We should be able to tell you more once the phone is released.
