Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Samsung is making an 11k phone! Rejoice!
Run to your neighbor’s door, tell them the good news then together you will go into their homes and shatter their television sets on the floor. What are they, a measly 4k at best?! Please. Samsung is going all in with an unconscionable degree of resolution.
How many pixels do you want, anyway? The original iPhone rendered at 163 pixels per inch. The iPhone 6 pushed that up to 326. We will refer to both of those tech marvels as latter-day Game Boys once Samsung drops its 2250 ppi screen into our laps. While some fools might call this overkill, the goal is to create a display so detailed that it functions as a 3D effect. Do you want a phone so clear you hallucinate? Do I even need to ask?
“Although some might think that 11K as ‘over specification’ that consumers do not need,” Samsung Display exec Chu Hye Young told Korea’s Electronic Times, “this can work as a basis for Korean display industry [to] take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this.” The aim, he said, is to unveil the super-display in time for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
Let it be written, and let no man speak of high resolution without speaking of 11K. If you try to talk to me about how sweet your phone is but have not 11k your tongue is but a clanging gong. Your move, Apple.
