Following Samsung launching high definition displays for tablets, Japanese electronics manufacturer Toshiba is all set to release its 4 inch mobile phone displays with high definition 720p resolution.
Toshiba is using a new technology called Low Temperature Poly-Silicon (LTPS) to manufacture displays that will be used for the next generation of smartphones.
The prime benefit of using LTPS technology is that with a pixel density of up to 367ppi (pixels per inch), more detail can be packed into small displays.
Toshiba will be using this in display sizes ranging from 3.3 to 4.0 inches, with resolution formats ranging from wide VGA (480 x 864) to HD (720 x 1280).
In addition, these displays will have high-contrast (up to 1,500:1); high-colour (up to 92 per cent NTSC), and wide viewing angle of up to H/V 176 degrees/176 degrees.
With the use of this new technology, smartphones need not be larger than 4 inches, which will make them convenient to carry.
And small screens also conserve battery power.
