We should all know by now that a major selling point of an Apple iPhone 4 is its Retina Display, capable of having resolutions at 960×640 with 326 pixels per inch (ppi), packed onto a 3.5 inch capacitive screen. So what happens if you try to fit Full HD resolution (1920×1080) onto a 4.8-inch display? Find out after the break.
Heard of Ortustech? It’s basically a joint venture between Casio and Toppan Printing for developing small to medium-sized displays. And their latest effort is the Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT (HAST) display that’s capable of displaying Full HD @ 4.8 inches. Having a 160-degree viewing angle with pixel density of 458 pixels per inch (ppi), it’s capable of displaying 16.8 million colors. For comparison, the iPhone 4’s Retina Display has 326ppi. Let’s just hope that this will eventually get into the consumer gadgets.
