This great small display might be the next big thing for smart phones or mini-tablets, which is the form-factor that could benefit from this incredibly small HD display technology.
But how small is it? Just 4.8 inches, that’s all. It’s called the HAST (Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT) screen and it features 1920×1080 resolution with a pixel density of 458ppi. It was unveiled today by ORTUS, which is a joint venture between Casio and Toppan Printing. To put things in perspective, The iPhone 4′s Retina Display is 3.5 inches with a resolution of 960×640 and a pixel density of 326ppi.
The display also can handle 16.8 million colors, and offers a 160-degree viewing angle. ORTUS expects this to be used for high performance security monitoring, but I’d like to see this on my next phone please.
