2K all the way: AUO showcases 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 AMOLED panels

We just talked about the OPPO Find 7 which was facing a delay in availability, and here we are talking high-res screens again. What’s common between the two is a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, the highest seen on a mobile device yet.

That being said, we have to mention that no manufacturer yet has been able to have a steady enough supply yet… well, sort of (the Xplay 3S has been shipping on and off). Samsung talked about a 5.2-inch 2K screen it was hoping to make available, Vivo has it with the 6-inch Xplay 3S, and then there’s the favourite — OPPO Find 7. It is indeed pretty clear what the world wants; rather, what the market wants the consumers to get.

Gizchina News of the week

While its not really clear if there is noticeable difference between 1920 x 1080p and 2560 x 1440p panels, everybody likes to stay on top of technology — especially those reading this — which makes it irrelevant altogether.

Coming back to AUO’s 5.7-inch display, it comes with the AMOLED technology, a favourite with Samsung. AUO has been making panels for Samsung screens, which suggests this new offering might be tailor made for the next Galaxy phablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 4.

AUO’s love for large screen doesn’t end just there; the company said that it was also working on a 6-inch display with the same QHD resolution.

Things really look in line for the next Galaxy Note release. Which display do you think the Note 4 will have — 5.7-inch or the 6-inch? Our money’s on the 5.7-inch QHD panel.

    I think , soon every Chinese phone could have 2k display,even AMOLED. Samsung is the manufacturer who sell middle quality devices for the hi-end prices

    I think Samsung will be using their new revolutionary Crazy Realistic Advanced Panel aka CRAP. CryosR may be jumping the gun on widespread 2K deployment but he’s certainly right about Samsung’s quality and I speak based on experience. Of course we also can’t forget they have had security issues and now include bloatware which is impossible to uninstall without rooting and installing a custom ROM. Anywho, who cares what samsungs doing next, I vote for keeping this gizchina and not gizkorea.

    Having a 1080p screen on an underpowered GPU like most china phones already sucks battery life.

    Plus its clear enough really.

      It’s an AMOLED screen. The main benefit of AMOLED over LCD is power savings.

        its not the brightness I’m talking about, its the rendering. Most phones with the same specs but 720p vs 1080p the 720p will be more pleasant

        • April 12, 2014

          That’s why I commented that this would be a good match for a OnePlus Two… I was implying that it would be good when matched with a Snapdragon 805 or something designed to really push pixels at this resolution.

          I disagree. I own a 6589t powered phone with 1080p display, and there are no issues with video performance, even with most 3d games

            Yes but 720p vs 1080 on the exact same phone the 720p will win for battery life every time

              But the difference is probably small, I still get 4/5 hours screen on time with 2000mah battery and the display being 5 inches. This is the iocean x7, and the hardware is sell suited for a 1080p display.
              Maybe with a lot of graphic intensive tasks, the battery would be a lot better with 720p

    Haha. This screen has “OnePlusTwo” written all over it!
