What is a qHD display?

I've seen a number of smartphones advertised with a "qHD" screen recently. What does this mean? I've never heard of qHD before. Is there anything new about this type of display?

It is a better sounding way to tell you that the screen isn't HD. It's actually 940x520 resolution, which is a quarter of actual HD. The shorten "quarter HD" to "qHD." It's pretty smart marketing, since it sounds like a version of High Definition. Even though a qHD display isn't cutting edge, if it is bright and has good viewing angles, I would be ok with one.
