Japan Display Inc. (JDI), a leading producer of displays for mobile devices, has developed a 12.1” 4K ultra-high-definition module, the world’s highest resolution density (365ppi) display designed for tablet use.

The display has 12.1” diagonal and 3840*2160 resolution; the screen has 1000:1 contrast ration, 500cd/m2 surface luminance, 160° viewing angle and 3600mW power consumption (360mW consumption without backlight). The monitor is the world’s first 4K UHD display designed for small form-factor laptops as well as media tablets.

The display allows users to enjoy precise and dynamic images within the resolution range of full high-definition (Full-HD) smartphones, with approximately 4 times larger screen size. Low temperature poly silicon technology (LTPS) enables not only high-capacity information content and high-resolution, but also low power consumption, thinner module and narrower dead-band, which suits mobile-use devices like tablets.

JDI plans to exhibit these displays in Japan Display booth on October 23 to 25, 2013, during FPD International 2013 in Pacifico Yokohama, Japan.

JDI is a joint venture between Sony, Hitachi, Toshiba as well as the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan.
