CMI to show Full HD 5" and 9.7" screens at IFA, we eagerly await them in phones and tablets
Taiwan's largest LCD maker, Chimei Innolux (CMI), is bringing pretty svelte 5" and 9.7" displays to the IFA expo this year.
The 5-incher is to sport the mouthwatering 440ppi pixel density, as it sports 1920x1080 pixels of resolution, whereas the 9.7" panel has 330ppi density, again achieved with Full HD resolution. As a reminder, the new iPad with its "Resolutionary" screen has 256ppi, so this CMI screen is even more "resolute".
LG comes to mind with a 5" Full HD screen prototype, too, so there will be no shortage of surprises on the display front in the next generation of mobile gadgets after the HD barrier was broken. Whether or not these kinds of resolution are overkill on a mobile device is an altogether different story - it just warms us that the tech is there provided someone wants to build a smartphone or tablet with it.
