Gorilla Glass 4 will bring in better drop protection

Your smartphone screen has come a long way since the feature phone days. Nearly scratch-proof, and highly resistant to shattering, it doesn’t seem as though it could get much better at times.

Sharp IGZO display amps up density to 736PPI

The 4.1-inch display size for smartphones isn't dead! So says Sharp with their newest IGZO creation. They've made a panel that's 2560 x 1600 - WQXGA.
