May 23, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have been tracking the developments at Qualcomm, you would know that the company released a preview of its Mirasol display on the SID Display Week floor.

The long rumored Mirasol display is said to be the future of e-reader display as well as useful in smartphones.

The Mirasol demo brought to the fore a 5.1-inch touchscreen with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution at 576 pixels-per-inch (ppi). The display is sharper than 443 ppi 5-inch 1080p panels that have found on multiple smartphones these days.


The previews were merely mock-ups, but the company has confirmed that the screen will most likely show up in other third-party devices.

The Mirasol display is believed to be energy-efficient and will offer six times more power advantage, compared to LCD and OLED displays.

The display is made with a micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) based on Interferometric Modulation (IMOD) technology that would have great use in smartphones.

According to Qualcomm, the Mirasol display offers a convergent display experience with paper-like readability, yet it consumes significantly less power than any other display available on the market.

It will take a few more years for the mass production of this new smartphone display.

However, rumors also suggest that a 1.5-inch display is aiming for devices such as smartwatches. Let’s wait to wear the tech.
