Samsung has reportedly teamed up with over a dozen companies to bring an 11k display to a mobile device by 2018.
According to Korea IT News, the South Korean government has also hopped on the initiative, contributing over $26-million to the development.
A Samsung representative told the publication that the display would have 2250 pixels per square inch. By comparison, the iPhone 6 Plus has 401PPI.
The group is reportedly planning to have the technology working by the 2018 Winter Olympics, set for South Korea.
“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 (to) take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this,” the Samsung representative said.
