Japan Display has been busy unveiling high-resolution screens recently. Now the company’s got something a little different: a crazy-bright screen.

The company’s new 7 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel tablet screen supports peak brightness of 1000 nits for outdoor visibility, although it’ll probably run down your battery pretty quickly at that level.

Indoors it can shine at up to 500 nits while using about 40 percent less power than a typical LCD (according to Japan Display).

  1. ” it’ll probably run down your battery pretty quickly at that level”
    No, it will not:
    “At the same time, on account of the “high permeability of the RGBW pixels,”
    peak brightness outdoors can receive a twofold boost, reaching up to
    1000 nits, and making the display visible even in direct sunlight, which
    should bode well for all beachgoers. In this ultra high brightness
    mode, the 7″ display will still draw as much power as a conventional LCD
    panel outdoors, so on average the battery life of a tablet equipped
    with this screen, will still be much better than the typical endurance

  2. I don’t think I’ve had my Nexus 10 above 25% brightness in months and it’s usually well below that, though I don’t use it outside.

  3. Oh the eye-strain, I’ll just take my e-ink and go back down this well. Seriously though efficiency improvements are always good, but personally AMOLED on full brightness burns my eyes so hope for a granular backlight controller
