Toshiba runs for the pixel density top with a 6
Toshiba is no stranger to excellent mobile LCD panels with high pixel density, but it just outdid everyone in the market with an astonishing 6-incher clocking in at 2560x1600 pixels.

That resolution makes it the mobile display to beat in terms of pixel density, since it comes just shy of 500ppi (pixels per inch), way more than the 329ppi of the LG Optimus LTE, which was the one to beat so far. Samsung has a 10-incher coming down the pipe with the same ultra high resolution, but it is using the PenTile matrix arrangement, and its size means pixel density will be lower.

While 6.1" seems pretty miniscule for a tablet, yet gigantic for a phone, Toshiba's creation is a nice proof of concept, and we are probably going to see this resolution in screens of different sizes.

The WQXGA display also sports good viewing angles at up to 176 degrees, and 1000:1 contrast. Nothing is mentioned about brightness, but Toshiba claims it will also be great for 3D overlays, since it has more than enough vertical lines to take care of the usual lowering of effective resolution that comes with 3D.
