Chimei Innolux 5-inch 1920×1080 LCD

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 “high resolution”, “narrow border” and “thin cell”, 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.
