Just received a press release from CMI announcing a 5-inch 1920×1080 AAS LCD sporting a 443 ppi:
Based on AAS (Azimuthal Anchoring Switch) display technology, CMI develops 5-inch Full HD LCD modules that meet the market trend and requirements for future smart phone.
At Touch Taiwan 2012, CMI showcases the 5-inch Full HD LCD module with 1080×1920 resolutions and 443 ppi. The 5-inch Full HD LCD module features â€œhigh resolutionâ€, â€œnarrow borderâ€ and â€œthin cellâ€, which delivers higher flexibility of smart phone industrial design.
The next milestone for large smartphone displays seems to be 1920×1080 5-inch LCDs. During SID 2012 LG Display also showcased a 5-inch 1920×1080 AH-IPS LCD.
Update 2012.08.29: Source link at CMI, a photo, and a few additional technical specifications:
- Brightness (white): 500 nits
- Viewing Angles: 160/160
- Contrast Ratio: 1100:1
- Colors: 16.7 million
- Color Gamut: 72%
- Internal Video Interconnect: MIPI
With such a high ppi the white brightness of 500 nits is incredible. I hope black brightness levels are low producing deep blacks. The photo does not detail which color space, but I assume it is CIE 1976. I believe a color gamut of 72% CIE 1976 is better than almost all notebook LCDs. The 5-inch 1920×1080 LCD from CMI is an impressive mobile display and I look forward to seeing one in a future smartphone.
