There has been a lot of excitement around the Vivo Xplay 3S and it’s 2560 x 1440 resolution display, but just how much of a difference will all those extra pixels make?
The jury is still out on whether we really need phones with 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution displays, but manufacturers are waiting for the verdict and are ploughing ahead to bring super high resolution phones to stores very soon.
One of the first could be the 5.7-inch Vivo Xplay 3S which would have a pixel density of 515ppi. To put that into perspective the iPhone’s retina display is 326ppi and the 1920 x 1080 screen on the HTC One has a pixel density of 468ppi. Of course these are all just numbers, how will this actually look on the phone itself? Well the magnified image below pits the iPhone, HTC One and Vivo Xplay 3S panels head to head.
Obviously this is looking the screens under magnification and we still don’t know if we will actually be able to see the differences with the naked eye.
The Vivo Xplay should launch in December with 4G LTE and a Snapdragon 800 processor.
