# Do 4K displays have higher pixel density than 1080p displays?

Curious to know whether 4K displays always have a higher pixel density than the regular 1080p? If the sizes of the display are to be kept fixed, say 55"; is it obvious that 4K display will have higher PPI than full HD display?

PS: Here's a video for the uninitiated -

For 55" 1080p Resolution :
Diagonal resolution : SQRT (3686400 + 1166400) = SQRT (4852800) = 2202.907
Display size = 55"
Hence, Pixel density = 2202.907/55 = 40.052

For 55" 4K UHD Resolution :
Diagonal resolution : SQRT (14745600 + 4665600) = SQRT (19411200) = 4405.814
Display size = 55"
Hence, Pixel density = 4405.814/55 = 80.105

Hence, 4K UHD display will have higher PPI than 1080p Full HD.

From above calculations, it's clear that 4K is for larger displays. And yet people want FullHD in their mobile phone.
