    The successor to HD is Quad HD (3840×2160), I am afraid this abbreviation QHD will get confused with pretty easily.

      i think that in the context of image resolution acronyms, “Q” commonly means quarter (eg QVGA 320×240, VGA 640×480), they must have a different word for quad to avoid the confusion. RED and other cinema cameras use notations like 3K, 4K, 5K, …etc to express the horizontal resolution in kilo’s, so 4K means the camera’s movie res is 4000 pixel horizontally. One of the very high res is called Ultra HD.

      • WoutK89

        so approx. a 2K would be Quad HD then?

        • Catastrophile

          could also be 3840×2160 close to 4K.
