Leaked LG B smartphone has bigger IPS screen than iPhone 4

When it comes to display technology, IPS (in-plane switching) is just about the cream of the crop. That’s why it’s the kind of tech that goes into the Retina Display on the iPhone 4. However, if you think that the screen quality on Apple’s device is impressive, wait until you check out the LG “B” smartphone by comparison.

It’s just a leaked phone with no confirmation from the Korean electronics giant at this point, but the LG “B” uses the same kind of IPS tech in its display as the Cupertino counterpart. The kicker is that while the iPhone is only 3.5-inches, the screen on the LG B is a full four inches. Further still, while the display on the iPhone 4 “only” boasts 500 nits of brightness, the LG B is said to boast 700 nits. By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S is only rated at 300 nits.

As far as the rumors go, the LG B also rocks a 1GHz processor and weighs in at 105 grams. It’s been referred to as the LG “Speed” as well, so the assumption is that the smartphone is able to hum along at a pretty decent pace. And yes, it’s powered by Android, though we’re not sure which version it rocks.

I’ve never been a huge fan of LG cell phones, but on paper, the LG B is starting to sound pretty impressive. Is eye-scorching brightness enough to catch your attention?

    My only problem is that in the picture the phones have different times on them. The one that is the “iphone” says 2:00 while the other 2 say 12:22. Why would the person have phones that are in the same timezone that aren’t the same time. This picture has been edited… Pretty poorly too if I may add.

      @Big A – is that your only problem? You have it easy. My TV has a reflection on it from the loungeroom window and the blind is stuck. Know what I’m sayin’ Dog?

    Why should anyone be surprised here? LG is making the iPhone’s “retinal” display. It only makes sense that they save the better and bigger screen for themselves.
