JDI begins mass production of 5-inch 1440p WQHD LCD displays

Japan Display Inc (JDI) has announced that it has started to mass produce a new 5-inch low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) LCD display that will pack an impressive 1440 × 2560 pixel resolution, giving it a pixel density of >500 PPI.

JDI has said that it has reduced the LCD power consumption in this WQHD resolution by using new materials that allows the panel power consumption to reduce depending on the display image signal. The LCD also uses JDI’s second generation Pixel Eyes in-cell technology, resulting in thinner borders, deeper black levels and better use with wet fingers.

The LCD module also has a driver IC (integrated circuit chip) which incorporates an embedded upscaling function from 1080p to 1440p. This would enable it to display WQHD images from a FHD designed chipset, by automatically converting the images.

JDI was formed through the consolidation of Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba’s display businesses back in 2012 and its displays have been used in various Xperia models, so there is a chance that we could see this display end up in a future model.

Sony has never released an Xperia model sporting this wide quad-HD (WQHD) resolution format before. It did come close with the Verizon Xperia Z4v, before the phone was cancelled just prior to launch.

    Sony could surprise us with a slim-bezelled 5″ 1440p XZ Compact if the power efficiency gains and resolution upscaling are good enough. Maybe even with the SD835 :)

    Nice to see Sony giving mobile lcd tech so much innovative push.

    You need to work on your use of innovation. There is nothing innovative in this (although it is a nice improvement).

    But not sure why you’ve singled out Sony, when JDI are Sony/Hitachi/Toshiba.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    What the…?
    Low temperature poly silicon, pixel eye v2, 2k image upscale ….
    You need to work on your understanding of what innovation means obviously.

  • deekbee

    You’re using the Apple version of innovative.

    These are minor improvements, and are effectively nothing new. Sure, they’re welcome, but claiming innovative is very Apple of you.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    You have a weird definition of innovative…
    By your logic nothing was innovative in last 10 years or so, not since discovery of lcd and oled tech respectively then.

    I have made 104,000 bucks in 2016 by freelancing online a­n­d I did that by wo­rking part-time for several h /day. I used an earning opportunity I stumbled upon from company that i found online and I am so thrilled that i earned so much money on the side. It’s so newbie-friendly a­­n­­d I’m just so blessed that I found out about this. Check out what I do… http://gee.su/xIZt8
