After announcing a new 4K capable screen that could be used in a large tablet, Japan Display Inc. is back with another announcement from the FPD International 2013 event in Japan. This time, JDI announces a new 5.4-inch TFT LCD panel running at 1440×2560 resolution, giving it a resolution density of 543 pixels per inch. JDI says they have optimized power consumption and the physical size so it could be used in a smartphone. Since Sony is one of the partners in JDI, don’t be surprised to see one of their devices as the first to incorporate this new screen.
Along with the 5.4-inch size, JDI also introduced a 6.2-inch version capable of running at the same resolution. Due to the larger size, the pixels per inch figure drops to 473ppi, which is still quite impressive.
