Japan Display Demos 4K Tablet Screens

Posted Thu Oct 24, 2013 at 09:00 AM PDT by

The company has revealed a 12.1-inch 4K tablet panel.

Japan Display unveiled its latest advancements this week at the FPD International 2013 exhibition, including a new LCD tablet panel. The 12.1-inch TFT screen features a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 with an impressive 365 ppi.

The 4K tablet panel joins the company's other recent innovations, including a 5-inch 1080p WhiteMagic smartphone display. Panasonic has also announced plans for a 4K tablet, but its model will feature a much larger 20-inch screen. This 12.1-inch display is designed with easier mobility in mind and features a thin, narrow frame and promises low power consumption. The screen features a contrast ratio of 1000: 1 and 500cd/2 brightness.

Release dates, pricing, or exact specs for any potential tablets that will use the new 4K display have not been announced yet.
