Samsung And 13 Other Companies Making An 11K Display By 2018

Business / Tech

4K and 8K are already old news though they’re still fairly new and not even mainstream on mobile devices yet. 4K is definitely getting there as 2K is starting to become a new normal. Anyway, Samsung along with 13 other companies are starting a five year project with the help of a $26.5 million investment thanks to the South Korean government to make the 11K display a reality.

The 11K display will put out three times as many pixels per inch than that of other resolutions now. It comes out to be 2,250 pixel per inch. A cool perk to having an 11K display is that there will be a 3D effect to the screen. 3D without glasses. Reminds me of my 3DS.

Project EnDK prototype will be shown in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang South Korea. It’d be pretty cool to see it before then, but if the project is set for five years, then we’ll end up seeing it then.

Executive Director Chu Hye Yong of Samsung Display’s Base Technology Department said at the 10th Display Field National Research Development Business General Workshop held at Muju Deogyusan Resort: “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.”

Executive Director Chu is correct that some may not think that 11K is needed for consumers out there and could benefit other display industries, but me personally, having 11K on a big screen would be much better than seeing in on a phone.

Would you ever get a phone with an 11K display even with a 3D effect or do you think that’s a bit too much? Let us know below, or on Google +, Facebook, or Twitter.
