LG shows off 5.5 inch 1080p, 7 inch 1920 x 1200, and 12.9 inch 2560 x 1700 displays

LG didn’t announce a 5.5 inch 1080p phone at CES, and for some strange reason people are upset. We’d rather the company announce that device and then ship it a month later instead of repeating the horrible mess that was the Optimus 4X HD. Remember that thing? It was announced in February 2012, but it didn’t start shipping until half a year later!

Forgetting about phones for a second, LG is a company that should be recognized for their amazing screen technology. Regardless of what you think of Apple, there’s a reason that they depend on LG for the panels that go into most of their high end devices. With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that LG has decided to demo three LCD panels at CES that we should see in devices later this year.

Starting with the one we all pretty much knew about, LG demoed a 5.5 inch 1080p LCD. Is it any coincidence that Lenovo decided to cram a 5.5 inch 1080p LCD into their Intel powered K900? We think not. We don’t have any official confirmation that LG is supplying Lenovo with that particular panel, but it’s not too hard to connect the dots.

The second display is more interesting. It measures 7 inches diagonal and has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That means it isn’t 16:9, it’s more like 16:10. Could this panel end up in a refreshed Nexus 7? We certainly hope so, our eyes would definitely appreciate that.

And last up is a curious beast that’s 12.9 inches diagonal and does 2560 x 1700 pixels. No, that isn’t a typo. Would such a panel be used inside a tablet or a laptop? What about one of those new fangled hybrid devices that serve both functions? Again, we’re baffled, but remain incredibly curious.

Like we said earlier, these three displays will be in 2013 products, so now we just wait.

      Freak? Can you not understand basic English? You imbecile, LG is here to stay….. If that LG 7″ screen actually makes it into the next nexus 7 that would be great for people who buy them. I’d like to see an amoled nexus 7 though from Samsung. Have you even seen LG’s new OLED tv’s?

      Since I already have a note 2, if I was looking for a tablet it would have to be no smaller than 10.1″.

        Facepalm… No more LG mobile… Not ever… Hopefully they stay on what they are good at… And that is not making mobiles.

          • Wimz3n

            Of course i am… Wont ever buy an LG phone again… But of course as long as they ONLY make hardware they might do for some… But I’m not on that road again… Not ever…

          Have you even seen the Optimus G?

          The specs are really good, and it’s affordable too.

            Nice body no brain… LG mobile can make a great mobile but they lack sw part. Don’t really understand how specs make a mobile great while sw is shitty… Gone on LG road once and i think i’ll keep away forever.

            Believe your lo level of vocabulary means that I need to explain…

            No more LG mobile… Not ever… That is MY opinion… OK
