New LCD Display Panel from Toshiba® Breaks Pixel Density Records
Get ready to be dazzled when your eyes catch a glimpse of the new razor sharp Toshiba’s LCD display panel. Soludina, the latest panel from Toshiba, is taking display gradation to new levels as it has even defeated the highest display density of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. This may not be surprising as Toshiba always like to push every limit of its Toshiba Mobile Display (TMD).
Soludina uses a unique technology that drives liquid crystal molecules by horizontally applying an electric field to them. This is quite similar to the present technology used in 'In Plane Switching' (IPS) mobile devices like the iPhone, the Kindle Fire, and in Fringe Field Switching (FFS). However, Toshiba’s new technology is different as the pixel structures of electrodes are not similar to the ones used in devices mentioned above.
This technology does wonders to the LCD panels as it boosts up the contrast ratio to 800:1 and even higher. It can display a staggering 16,777,216 colors, at a 71 per cent color gamut. The viewing angle can be up to 176 degrees for both horizontal and vertical planes. It has released two versions of the panels – a 4.3-inch version for smartphones that has a resolution of 720 x 1280 with 343 pixels per inch and a 7-inch one for tablet computer with a 800 x 1280 resolution with 217ppi.
Toshiba has really raised the bar for pixel density of mobile devices as it is far above the mark than the current leading mobile LCD panels. Apple’s retina display has 330 pixels per inch. So, let’s see who comes up next to compete with a bigger number that can beat this astonishing pixel quality achieved by Toshiba’s Soludina.
