Future of Car, Tablet and Smartphone Displays Revealed

October 24, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

This is the first step towards the changing face of the digital world. The next-generation LCD screen displays would most probably look like the ones you see in the screenshots below.

These prototypes were developed by Japan Display, with the added strength of Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi. The three display prototypes, called as “Innovation Vehicles”, which can be used for smartphone, tablet, and automotive applications will be showcased during the FPD International 2012 exhibition in Yokohama, Japan.

Large screens on the instrument panel on some vehicles are not uncommon. Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Land Rover and Dodge, as well as other vehicles utilise large screens for their tachometer and speed gauges.

But JDI has put up a 12.2-inch automotive touchscreen display, which has a mega resolution of 1,920×720-pixels. The large screen uses true-black technology for enhanced contrast, and when compared to the existing displays, this one has 50 percent lower power consumption and integrated touch function.

The Innovation Vehicle for tablets makes use of a 7-inch display with a whooping WQXGA resolution of 2,560×1,600-pixels, and sharp pixel density of 431ppi. The display also gives a high contrast ratio of 2,000:1, due to the new IPS technology.

Here too, there’s almost 50 percent decrease in power consumption which is gained by utilizing a RGBW pixel structure.

Currently, the level of pixels per inch is very much behind what JDI has implemented in their innovation, with the present iPad 3 carrying 264ppi display and the Kindle Fire HD having 254ppi resolution.

On the smartphone front, JDI adopts a large 5-inch diagonal size module with an HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 438ppi. The contrast ratio here too is 2,000:, with 50 percent less power consumption.
