As we told you back in December, Korean tech giant LG was packing some displays
in the suitcase containing the toiletries for the trip to Las Vegas and CES 2013. Each size display and resolution made us think of a specific device, and each of the three displays will be in some device
by the middle of 2013. The first one on display is a 5.5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 for full HD. This screen outdoes the 720 x 1280 display on the Samsung GALAXY Note II
and will surely be found on a phablet some time in 2013. In fact, it might already have been seen on the Intel powered Lenovo K900
. The 400ppi pixel
density falls just shy of the 441ppi on the new 5 inch 1080p models like the HTC DROID DNA
, Huawei Ascend D2
and the ZTE Grand S
, but is still quite outstanding.

The next screen has tablet written all over it (hopefully in erasable
ink). It is a 7 inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels. Remember, each one of the screens that LG displayed will be on at least one device this year, so whichever tablet has this glass will probably be the immediate flagship device
in the crowded 7 inch tablet market. However, we would expect the pricing of this panel to keep some of the low cost 7 inch producers away. The third display is a 12.9 inch screen with 2560 x 1700. That could be for a large tablet, a small laptop or perhaps a smaller version of the ASUS Transformer AiO
that goes from Windows PC to Android tablet at the click of a button.
All of the displays are AP-IHS models, similar to what LG has been sending over to Apple for the Apple iPhone
and the Apple iPad
