The huge resolution means that the 5.1-inch display delivers 576ppi, which sounds like overkill, since Apple’s first Retina displays featured just 300ppi. Although the high resolution might be pointless, the reflective display should perform much better in direct sunlight and that’s what matters. It also has a six-fold power advantage over traditional LCD and OLED displays, reports Engadget.
However, it is not coming anytime soon. Qualcomm says it is still years away from production, which means we probably won’t see it in the next generation of flagship phones.
