Japan Display Inc (JDI), which is the joint venture between the display businesses of Sony Mobile, Hitachi and Toshiba, has developed a 5.2-inch OLED Full HD (1080 x 1920) display according to reports. The panel has a density of 423 PPI and uses a RBGW pixel structure i.e. it uses an additional white pixel to the normal red, blue and green arrangement. Sony Mobile branded this pixel structure as WhiteMagic when using a TFT LCD version in the Xperia P.
This panel is larger than the previously announced 4.5-inch OLED 720p panel with a 326 PPI pixel density, expected to enter mass production in fiscal 2014. Don’t expect the 5.2-inch screen to enter production any time soon – reports say it will be at least two to three years away.
Thanks Wael and Wesley!
