Asian electronics giant, LG has announced a new 5-inch screen that features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display panel, which is expected to go on sale later this year.

The new panel is designed for smart devices, and features a 440ppi pixel density – far higher than the 330ppi Retina display used by the Apple iPhone 4 and 4S.

“The naked eye is unable to distinguish between individual pixels,” LG said.

The 5-inch screen will have a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, and is built on Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) technology. It will provide wider viewing angles, improved colour palette, and faster touch-response times than previous screens, according to LG.

The new screen is larger than the one found on Samsung’s new flagship model, the Galaxy S3, which features a 1280 x 720 resolution and a pixel density of 306ppi.

The LG screen will be released in the second half of 2012, and will be on display at the SID 2012 Display Week trade show.
