So you thought Sharp’s new 5 inch 1080p smartphone display was overkill? That’s nothing. The company is also showing off a 6.1 inch 2560 x 1600 pixel display at CEATEC in Japan this week.
The display has a resolution of 498 pixels per inch. For comparison’s sake, Apple’s latest iPhone models with “retina” displays, by comparison, have a 326 ppi displays, and the iPad with Retina display has 264 pixels per inch.
In fact, I’m not aware of any other electronic display that packs more pixels into an inch than Sharp’s new display.
I’m also not sure you’d be able to tell the difference between a 1080p and a 1600p display on a screen that small — but it’s still impressive.
Sharp’s prototype uses the same IGZO technology as the company’s upcoming 10 and 13.5 inch displays, featuring 1560 x 1600 pixel and 3840 x 2160 pixels, respectively.
