Sharps new 5inch 1080p display packs 443 ppi

first_imgLG might have a 5-month head start on Sharp, but that’s not stopping the Japanese display maker from offering up a brand new 5-inch 1080p display. Like LG’s 16:9 panel, Sharp’s new offering boasts a Retina-crushing 443 pixels per inch (the iPhone 5 is just 336 ppi).But a 5-inch display is clearly not aimed at smartphones that compete with the tall, slender iPhone. They’re aimed at devices like the Optimus Vu and Samsung Galaxy Note — which sit around 256 and 286 ppi respectively. Sharp’s new panels should allow OEMs that want to step up their phablet game to do so by integrating its razor-sharp displays.While all those extra pixels might not always make much difference when you’re holding your as-yet-unbuilt 5-inch device at a proper distance, it’ll definitely help when you’re reading text or bring the screen in for closer inspection. There’s a good possibility you’ll see these displays popping up in Sharp’s own Android phones, like the SH530U, which launched in August with a 5-inch 480×800 panel instead.Sharp’s had a bit of a rough time lately, and only recently finished offering up loads of real estate as collateral in order to secure a $1.2 billion operating loan. The list of facilities covers “almost all the business sites in Japan owned by Sharp” and even includes the factory where Sharp just started producing the displays for the iPhone 5.The company was also given the cold shoulder recently by Hon Hai chairman Terry Gou , who unexpectedly shortened a business trip to Japan and returned home without meeting with Sharp to finalize the purchase of a 10% stake.More at Engadget and Sharplast_img read more
