JDI develops 5-inch FHD TFT LCD display with integrated touch (Pixel Eyes)

JDI 5-inch Pixel EyesWe are always keen on hearing how Sony Mobile may be progressing its future Xperia line-up and what components it may decide to use, particularly on the display side. To that end, Japan Display Inc (JDI) announced earlier today that it has developed a 5-inch 1080p TFT LCD display with integrated touch functionality (branded “Pixel Eyes”).

We know that JDI (a joint venture between Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba) panels have been used in some Xperia Z units, therefore it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them appear in new handsets. It seems that JDI at least seems to know what is required of it, talking about the need for displays with “higher resolutions, wider viewing angles, higher picture quality, lower power consumption, and thinner module thickness.”

JDI will have Pixel Eyes products in mass production from June 2013 in resolutions of 720p (720 x 1280 pixels) and qHD (540 x 960 pixels). It is also readying the new 5.0-inch Full-HD TFT LCD module with Pixel Eyes technology. Advantages of the tech include a slimmer module (by 10 to 30%), lower optical reflections and higher productivity. All eyes will be on Sony Mobile’s next flagship to see whether it has really improved its display.

    Well, for me it’s not such a pain in the ass… But it’s high time Sony came with better displays.

  • Yusuf

    TFT LCDs aren’t efficient anymore. Sony SHOULD make the switch to IPS LCD (ex. HTC One) and OLED panels (ex. Lumia 925).

  • Max

    It is IPS:

    Display mode: Transmissive IPS

  • ravemotion

    What about the rumored triluminous display?

  • Sony Uses IPS Displays Since Xperia Arc… IPS is just the LCD Base-Technology (in-plane-switching) how the single pixel are controlled. But there are much dufferent Display tipes with other manufacturing methods and different Display Quality but all are IPS displays

  • Roy

    I was about to ask that, You’ve beaten me to punch. :(

  • SonyFan

    Sony won’t have great Displays until they switch from the TFT type…these are very bad…the best Display on a Sony smartphone i’ve ever seen was the Xperia V…it is just excellent…Sony can do that…but we will never know why…

  • ZhoraGosha

    And yet viewing angles suck hard, again, even for the japanese….. I don’t get Sony….They came up with the design, the internals are ok or great and they put like a big fucking pile of shit on top of the cake….((

  • Pretty much all modern displays are TFT. You mean TN.
    The best display tech I’ve seen is WhiteMagic on the Xperia P. Same thing but 5″ fHD would be ideal!

  • xperia s

    Who cares where is jb for xperia s????

  • Lunkz

    Yeah sure, the one half of the market has a Sharp display the other half a JDI Display, like the Xperia Z. (Have a Sharp Display on my Z).

    So it will be the same with the new flagship from Sony, like the Z.

  • zelle

    idk y people keep dragging the viewing angle to a prob. are you actually using your phone as a tv everytime that such viewing angle makes u die? i dont get these peoples. –“

  • ctcxe

    Well not exactly. LCD is the base technology.

    TFT is a variant of LCD display.
    And IPS is a variant of TFT LCD display.

    Lastly, there are also IPS variants.

    Still, every panel, no matter it’s quality, if it is IPS, it must have better viewing angles.

    Also, almost no xperia device uses IPS technology. Except those that have the Opticontrast panels (all XV, half XT, half XZ and probably XZL) and also XP.

    Slight offtopic: LED is the light technology. Nothing to do with actual TFT panel.

  • Triluminos? i was expecting you :(

  • hong

    Because TFT has long lifespan than any other LCD in the market. You should know that.

  • Yes who are these weird ‘peoples’ (Eskimos, Hottentots, Martians??) trying to share mobile experiences with their friends and family?!?! I don’t get it either!

  • dftg

    because we want sony to take some if not all share of samsung’s market. samsung buyers have been accustomed to wide viewing angles. wide viewing angles apparently make devices have that more premium look compared to the xperia’s displays that look like those of cheap china phones.

    we want sony to succeed to earn and have enough money to support future r&d for innovations. we want more buyers from sony and we can’t achieve that if sony continues to use displays that don’t actually offer any advantages over amoleds, super LCD, LCD III, and IPS.

    think about it. why does sony keep using the kind of displays it is using now when it does not offer advantages in terms of contrast, outdoor visibility, battery consumption, and longevity?

    go over various sites online and you’ll see how inferior sony’s mobile displays. the only advantage they can offer is high levels of brightness and they’re not even on top of the leaderboard for that.

    seriously, even cheaper china devices like lenovo, oppo and unknown brands like gionee use better displays.

  • i’m gamer

    we still hope on xperia play 2

    The common misperception with the screen of the Xperia Z is that it is TFT, its not. its an Economy IPS (e-ips) panel, unfortunately they are the cheaper alternative to true AH-IPS which the HTC One uses and due to the cheapness they have worse viewing angles.

  • lolsomany

    i think jdi using this new technology with triluminous display

  • lolsomany

    where is Crystal LED that sony show as prototype last year? sony should push this new technology in JDI

  • arska

    TFT….thats not cool! USE IPS for once! why TFT it cheap and bad viewing angles!
    Xperia line has the worst screen on the market!
    Comon! nobody agrees? comon! cant u see or what?

  • arska

    this on honami…

  • lolsomany

    There are type of TFT LCD

    1)Twisted nematic (TN)
    2)In-Plane Switching (IPS)
    3)Advanced fringe field switching (AFFS)
    4)Multi-domain vertical alignment (MVA)
    5)Patterned vertical alignment (PVA)
    6)Advanced super view (ASV)
    7)Plane Line Switching (PLS)
    8)TFT Dual Transistor Pixel or Cell Technology

    i think sony using ASV which sony cooperate with Sharp. that’s why some people got Sharp display, some got Sony display.

    For your information ~

    IPS doesn’t suffer poor viewing angle because of its wide viewing angle and accurate color reproduction (with almost no off-angle color shift) so what you guys said about Sony using IPS right now is wrong because all Xperia phone suffered with poor viewing angle including the Xperia V and Xperia P( white magic help both phone for better viewing angle)

    the link from JDI show that this new technology using IPS. So for the first time the next sony flagship gonna use IPS LCD with Triluminous Display

  • lolsomany

    owh ya, i just finish read the latest article in that link show JDI already finish prototyping OLED display called White OLED which is new technology by adding the color white in RGB (same as white magic display) and will start produce small amount of White OLED in 2014 and its still unknown whether sony will use this display in the future

  • boosook

    No OLED please! Unnatural colors, unable to reproduce decent whites (whites are green/blue), oversaturated look… no thanks.

  • Shelton Palha

    Sony my guys plz plz plz my request to u people bring the same design of xperia z but with display improvement and camera . I like both side glass design . Bring your PlayStation app to hole new level . Put triluminous display and main thing wireless charging accessories plz plz . I will buy it first

  • Babylonbwoy

    I don’t know lot about screen but TFT sounds old to me, like it’s the cheapest screen technology… About viewing angle I have seen comments about last .253 update saying they improve it…

  • dif

    i think triluminos is practically useless. it only improves color gamut. it has no effect on making the display more power efficient. it can’t also improve contrast and viewing angles i suppose.

    it’s better to have white magic tech using OLED. that will be a million times better than sony’s current displays.

  • picks

    if that’s true then honami is doomed to fail.

  • ryq24

    Finally a better viewing angle which all critics always point out on Sony’s phone. I wonder why Sony don’t buy their screen from htc suppliers? :-)

  • Anukul

    because it makes it itself from JDI

  • exactly…you are right.. they will use the triluminos tech on a TFT panel.mean lot power consumption.

    triluminous display is a Sony thing, why would Sony share their trump cards with others?

  • josesl16

    Uhhh, I’m pretty sure my P has IPS.
