Back in the stone age of phones – you know, around 6-7 years ago – devices had petite screens with about very few pixels spread across the whole screen. The advances in display technology and manufacturing processes have progressed in such leaps and bounds that many are left shaking their heads (and rubbing their eyes) when we start talking about higher resolution (say 2K or even 4K) displays. As manufacturing costs came down, smartphones with 2K display became available at cheap. Beamdroid brings you a list of top 5 smartphones with 2K(QHD) display below Rs 30,000 in India.
But first, lets understand what QHD or 2K is. QHD stands for Quad HD, which is four times the definition of standard HD. That means you can fit the same number of pixels as four HD displays into a QHD display of the same size. The pixel measurement for QHD is 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Definitions are also often referred to by the smaller number of the pixel measurement, so Full HD will sometimes be called 1080p, HD gets called 720, and QHD gets called as 1440p and so on. With QHD though, the 2K name comes from the fact that the bigger of the pixel measurements is over 2,000 pixels, which can admittedly be a bit confusing. Okay, enough of this general knowledge. Lets get straight to business. Here are the top 5 smartphones with 2K(QHD) display below Rs 20,000 in India.
