One of the many rumors we heard directed towards the Samsung Galaxy S III in the months leading up to the phone’s announcement concerned the possibility of the handset featuring a full 1080p display. Whether you though such a thing was preposterous, or merely excessive, there’s little denying what a coup such a screen would be should a smartphone ever be the first to offer such technology. It now looks like that day is an inevitability, as LG has formally announced a five-inch smartphone display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

LG’s Full HD AH-IPS panel ends up with what works out to a pixel density of 440ppi, an improvement of almost 35% over the density of the iPhone’s screen. It’s unclear if this represents a limit for how densely LG can manufacture displays with the technology it’s using, and if we’ll eventually see 1080p on something smaller than a five-inch component.

LG will first demonstrate its new high-res screen at the Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2012 in Boston early next month, with plans to release the component sometime in the second half of the year. There’s no word on when we might see the first commercial products with these 1080p screens, but keep your eyes peeled around the holiday season.
