In recent years, more smartphones are getting better and higher quality displays in order to improve user experience to their customers. A couple of years ago, Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution was the best in the mobile phone industry. However, it was replaced by QHD (2560 x 1440) screens last year. Now, it seems Sharp will take its place at the top of the display food chain once more.

In the report, the UHD display will fit the phablets of today, and could be the next best thing in the mobile industry. more >>
