Samsung & LG Expected To Offer 1080p HD Handsets In Early 2013

1080p HD displays have been in the works for what seems like forever. Chinese company Oppo was the first official manufacturer to announce a 1080p device, however, the major players in the industry are making it a point to not be left behind. According to Korea’s MK News, word from its industry sources this morning, are that both Samsung and LG are planning to unveil new smartphones with Full HD displays in the first half of next year. MK News has shown they have a pretty decent track record when it comes to Android and mobile rumors so this information appears to be real (they have correctly identified the Galaxy Note II’s quad-core processor upgrade and enlarged display for example).

LG has already shown off some of their prototypes for a 5-inch 1080p display, however, HTC has of course beaten everyone to the punch with its Full HD J Butterfly handset in Japan. Both companies are believed to have something in the works that they will be showcasing in January at CES. Samsung is expected to stick with its trusted AMOLED technology and LG will surely be harnessing that LCD prototype for its own products.

Fellow Korean outfit Pantech is also rumored to be planning to promote a Full HD handset in the early part of 2013, though details on where it may source its displays from have not yet been uncovered.

DroidDog will continue to monitor over any leaks or news that pertain to the Full HD displays on the upcoming phones from HTC, Samsung, and LG.
