The world’s first 6″ 4K AMOLED display with a density of 734 PPI is on its way.

Before you go whining and moaning that this resolution is not only unnecessary, but also undiscernible by the human eye, I'll save you the trouble by stating it here: Yes, this pixel density is significantly higher than most normal humans can perceive.

If you're one of those who feels anything over 300 PPI is useless, you should know that Sharp Devices Europe's controlled study concluded that the perceptible advantage of higher-resolution smartphone displays has not been exhausted, even at 1000 PPI.

734 PPI may seem like overkill to you, but Samsung Display has embarked on a project to engineer the world’s first “super dimension” mobile display with an 11K resolution at an astounding 2,250 PPI sharpness. You can read more here, but be warned that the article feels poorly and awkwardly translated from Korean (“We are hoping that we are able to show such technologies at Pyeongchang Olympics if there is a progress in developing technologies. Although some might think that 11K as ‘over specification’ that consumers do not need, this can work as a basis for Korean display industry take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this.")
