Smartphones have greatly changed the lifestyle of almost every industry and every line of business. It is easy to say that they are the new personal computers, but it would be more correct to give them the nickname “second screen”, because they have created a new generation that is indifferent to television, radio, and in some cases computers. , blockbusters.
Smartphones have undeniably changed the way people entertain and engage. Connoisseurs already know that one of the most important aspects of choosing a new handset is the display, and current market trends point to two things: size and resolution. Smartphone screens are getting bigger and sharper; With this, the display resolution is also increased to improve or maintain the quality and size of images and videos.
If you think the latest smartphones are too big to hold in just one hand, then think again. The lineup of 2013 flagship smartphones from various manufacturers, based on leaked specs or official releases alone, looks like it will be a battle between 5-inch, 1080p and full HD juggernauts. Look at them.
In late 2012, Taiwan-based HTC released the HTC J Butterfly, internationally dubbed HTC Droid DNA, in Japan. Officially, this is the second smartphone in the world to offer a 1080p display, after the Chinese manufacturer’s Oppo’s Find 5. As it should be, Butterfly runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which is powered by a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and 2GB of internal memory. RAM. Apart from the 5-inch full HD display, “Super LCD 3”, with a pixel density of 440 ppi, people are praising its waterproof and dustproof package. Not bad for a 140 gram pack, huh?
The successor to the wildly successful Optimus G, the LG Optimus G2 is an unconfirmed product from the South Korean manufacturer. While the final specs are still a bit fuzzy, speculation is already swirling that the display will be stunning (which is logical since LG is first and foremost popular for its TVs). On the front, LG is reportedly working on a new display technology on this baby, which will feature a 1080p display and a snapper with resolutions reaching 13 megapixels or more. Watch out for this new one as it might debut at CES 2013.
Sony Xperia Z
The Sony Xperia Yuga, also known as the Xperia Z, packs a punch with its 5-inch, 1080p display. Plus, it’s powered by OptiContrast technology that reduces reflections and glare by a mile, even if you plan to make calls using a VoIP service in the hot afternoon sun, you can still see where you should press the “call” button. Like the HTC J Butterfly, it is dust and water resistant and also packs some big specs under the hood. Despite its Q1 ETA, it has already appeared on various review sites and is expected to shine at CES 2013.
Arguably one of the most anticipated devices of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expecting a release date of early 2013 (Q2, according to reports). This year’s CES attendees may also be disappointed because reportedly it will be exhibited behind closed doors and limited to Samsung’s high-end partners. There’s no word on an official announcement yet, but industry watchers can expect more scathing rumors in the coming months. In fact, it has been rumored to push the pixel density to an amazing 441ppi to complement the 4.99-inch full HD display. One thing’s for sure, though: The S4 has some big shoes to fill considering its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S3, is hands down worthy of the “flagship” tag.
