The FPD 2012 convention took place in Yokohama, Japan last week showcasing the latest flat panel display technology. We took particular interest in what Japan Display Inc (JDI) had to show as some of the developments from the company (formed by Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba) may find its way to an upcoming Xperia model.
The 5-inch 1080p display that we reported on recently was at the show with WhiteMagic and Pixel Eyes branding. WhiteMagic technology has a RGBW matrix, adding the extra white pixel for a much brighter screen or power efficiency. Pixel Eyes is the brand name for integrated touch panels. JDI has also developed a 4.5-inch OLED panel with a 326 PPI pixel density and is expected to enter mass production in fiscal 2014. Another display showcased was a paper-like low-power colour LCD which can display video. Check out a video of some of what was on show below.
