Japan Display Inch is showing off a new set of display prototypes aimed at phones, tablets, and automotive systems. The most unusual is probably the company’s 7 inch tablet screen, which features a high resolution 2560 x 1600 pixel display.
That’s 431 pixels per inch. By comparison, an Apple iPad with a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel “Retina” display has 264 pixels per inch, and the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet with a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel screen shows about 300 pixels per inch.
In other words, text, images, and other graphics should look really good on a tablet with Japan Display’s new 7 inch screen. The company also says the displays have 2000:1 contrast ratio and use 50 percent less power than its existing displays.
Japan Display is also showing off prototypes of new 5 inch and 12.2 inch 1080p displays for smartphones and cars, respectively.
There’s no word on if or when we’ll see any of these screens in actual products, but I suppose it’s nice to have confirmation that it’s possible to cram that many pixels into a small space.
